If any one place can fully express the vibrant atmosphere of Kemp Town, it is this. Housed in a garish building, the Brighton Flea Market is an eclectic collection of the fascinating, the rare, the ornamental, and the just plain useless. Here you will find over sixty independent stalls selling a variety of furniture, antiques, and collectibles. There are no pressure salesmen, so the market is worth a visit, even if you have no intention to buy anything.
- Venue Description:
Bristling with activity, day and night, Kemp Town epitomizes the spirit of Brighton, lively, colorful and slightly seedy. This area of town is full of good pubs, antique and junk shops, B&Bs and interesting churches. At the eastern end are Sussex Square and Lewes Crescent, stunning white Regency town houses which have been the home to, among others, Lewis Carroll and Ozzy Osbourne. Kemp Town is also the spiritual home of the city's large gay and lesbian community.
