Beach huts

There are several stretches of brightly-painted beach huts along Hove seafront - these ones border Hove Lawns at the end of Grand Avenue.

Your blog has been included in our guide Around The World.

The guide is both a record of old blogs and a listing of new blogs. Although originally arising from the "City Daily Photo Blog" lists this is an independent publication. Inclusion here does not imply that a blog qualifies for nor is officially a CDPB. Our criteria are that photographs mainly from and related to a specific geographical location (not necessarily a "city" but usually more specific than a whole country or region) are posted at dated intervals (not necessarily daily) and archives are readily searchable by date.

Please keep us informed of any changes to your details.

When I was a child we used to rent a beach hut. I don't remember them as close together as this - or so smart. I read somewhere they cost a fortune nowadays. I think there used to be a lottery as to who lot one to rent as more people wanted them that were available.

The contrast between the gaily- colored beach huts and the buildings behind them is really striking.

Don't know if this still occurs but the beach huts were controlled (rented out/cared for) by one man who was known to all as 'Bernie the Beach Hut'. He had the monopoly on the whole beach hut scene!

Lovely photo - the Hove ones are so much prettier than the ones down my end of Brighton coast.

My daughter is renting in Hove on the Kingsway and on a recent visit I was very impressed with the beach huts. So smart and colourful. Shame there are none for rent or up for sale.
