- Hanover, Brighton
Hanover is an area within the city of
Brighton and Hove, United Kingdom. It is part of the electoral wardof Hanover & Elm Grove.
The exact boundaries of the neighbourhood of Hanover are generally thought of as the area running up the hill to the east of the Level, towards Queen's Park Road, bounded on the north by Elm Grove and on the south by Sussex Street. The local government ward of Hanover & Elm Grove includes some of the streets to the north of Elm Grove, and the streets north of Down Terrace.
Physically, Hanover is principally a very steep hill, lined with streets of tightly packed Victorian cottages. Until the 1980s, Hanover was a generally poor area, but since then it has become gentrified to some extent.Fact|date=February 2007 Its population includes many commuters (

The "Hanover Community Association" runs a community centre on Southover Street, a Beer festival in September, and the successful "Hanover Day". Until 2006 Hanover Day took place each August but the 2007 day was on 8 July.
