Just by Hove Lagoon there is a great fish and seafood shop. It used to be known to locals only but ever since Gordon was televised buying there its been more popular and expanded.
Great selection of fresh fish and seafood. Also frozen.
No good if you are staying in a hotel, although you could always have a bbq on the beach.
Celebrating 60 years in business since their shop opened in 1948, Audrey's are renowned in Brighton and Hove for making the finest traditional handmade chocolates. Their speciality is fondant creams - I quote 'Traditional English Rose and Violets Creams are hand made in our kitchen to traditional recipes using the finest fondants, rose and violet oils, enrobed in plain chocolate and decorated with crystallized rose and violet petals'. Hmm, not usually my first choice out of the choccy box but even I'm interested! They also create the full range of hard and soft centred chocolates and in my humble opinion they produce the finest chocolate gingers I've ever tasted! Crystallised peppermints, chocolate covered orange peel, nuts and nougat, langue du chat...it's all waiting for you. Bring money and elasticated trousers.
What to buy: Chocolate gingers. Superbly good.
What to pay: The more you want the more you'll pay - but it is rather special!
