We showed you how to spend a day on the seafront for less than £10, we showed you how to spend a day in the North Laine for less than £10 and now we’re back with our guide on how to have a cheap day out in Kemptown.
Go Charity Shop Hunting
Kemptown may not be the shopping hotspot that the Laines is but that doesn’t mean you can’t find a fair few things there. With plenty of charity shops to find from, with donations from lots of stylish residents, you never know what you may find. Whether you’re on the hunt for clothes, board games, kitchen wares or any miscellaneous stuff, there’ll definitely be something to catch your eye.
Visit Brighton Flea Market
As we’ve said before, Kemptown’s Brighton Flea Market is an absolute treasure trove of goodies. If you’re trying to have a day out for less than a tenner, it’s unlikely you’ll want to buy anything here, but nevertheless it’s a great place to while away some time looking at all the quirky items.
Get Some Food
If you’re looking for affordable food, Kemptown is a great place for it! Slightly off the beaten track, the eateries can be much cheaper than elsewhere in Brighton. With Belgian fries from £2.50 and Italian meals with a drink for a fiver, you’ll be sure to find something delicious to keep you going without damaging your budget too much. If you’ve got a sweet tooth, why not try out the gelato place on St James Street?
Hang Out At New Steine…
With a Co-Op just opposite and a Morrisons down the road, why not grab a picnic and sit at New Steine? Nestled in between traditional Victorian townhouses and B&Bs, you’ll get a great view of the sea from New Steine, without the busyness of the actual seafront.
…Or Queens Park!
If you’re willing to walk a little further uphill then you could spend some time in the lovely Queens Park. Bring a ball or a frisbee and some food and you’ll be set for the day. The park has a beautiful clock tower as well as a nice big pond full of ducks and geese.
Grab A Coffee
With some of the best independent coffee shops in Brighton, Kemptown is the place to be if you’re a java junkie. Visit one of the numerous coffee shops and sit in for a nice brew to take some weight off your feet.
