Hove (pronounced /ˈhoʊv/ Hoav) is a town on the south coast of England, immediately to the west of its larger neighbour Brighton, with which it forms the unitary authority Brighton and Hove. It forms a single conurbation together with Brighton and some smaller towns and villages running along the coast. As part of local government reform Brighton and Hove were merged to form the borough of Brighton and Hove in 1997. In 2000 the conjoined towns officially attained city status.

Hove is between Brighton on the east and Portslade-by-Sea on the west.

History and development

Pre-Roman evidence

During 19th century building work near Palmeira Square, workmen removed a significant burial mound. A defining point on the landscape since the 1200 BC, this 20 feet (6.1 m)-high tomb yielded – amongst other treasures – the Hove amber cup. Made of translucent red Baltic Amber and approximately the same size as a regular china tea cup, the artefact can be seen in Hove Museum.[2]
