Hove is a town on the south coast of England, immediately to the west of its larger neighbour Brighton, with whom it forms the unitary authority Brighton and Hove. Hove is between Brighton on the east and Portslade-by-Sea on the west. The pre-1997 borough of Hove, formed in 1974, included Portslade-by-Sea. Hove's seafront and beach, particularly the area starting on the west side of Brighton's West Pier (actually the first 300 metres are in Brighton) have recently become fashionable.
