THERE are many reasons to love living in our amazing city.

From paddling in the sea at low tide to rummaging through the vintage and antique shops of North Laine, Brighton is, in many ways, the perfect place to live.

And that’s why we asked Argus readers what they would miss most if they had to move.

Many readers said they would miss the sea air and long walks along Brighton Beach.

Sam Rider Scothorn said, “I would miss the uniqueness and individuality of people.

Nicola Jebbit said: “I moved in 2020. I miss the quirkiness of Brighton and the fact that you can walk past someone dressed as a wizard walking their cat and no one would bat an eyelid.”
