A station of many names in its 150-year history, Hove railway station serves the local community of Brighton and Hove with trains to Southampton, Portsmouth and Bath Spa.

Hove railway station was originally named Cliftonville, before being named West Brighton in 1879, Hove and West Brighton in 1894, then settling on its current name in 1895.

Visitors to the station looking to be inspired by local culture might like to check out the Hove Museum and Art Gallery, which has a fantastic permanent collection of fine art, toys and historical artefacts, as well as hosts regular contemporary exhibits and events.

If it’s something more fast-paced you’re looking for, there’s always the option to visit Sussex County Cricket Club or Brighton & Hove Albion FC.
