"LOOK FOR THE 'LESSER-SPOTTED CELEBRITY'!" Hove Things to Do Tip by themajor

Hove Things to Do: 7 reviews and 7 photos

by themajor

Well, there's plenty to see if you're into birdspotting. Though to be honest we're more geared up to cater for lovers of seagulls (of which there are many)...and starlings and pigeons (of which there are too many). To be fair the sight of thousands of starlings sweeping across the seafront each evening as they had for their roosting sites (see 'West Pier') can be pretty impressive.

If that fails to amuse you could always try a spot of celebrity spotting. Hove - how shall I put this? - isn't exactly Hollywood but we do have one of the many homes of Paul McCartney, and he does occasionally stroll along the promenade. The photograph shows the beachfront parade where many of the stars have settled. Needless to say, they have their own private pebble strewn beaches but Mr Fatboy Slim has been seen meandering with his metal detector along the shore. I jest not!
