The Local Area Guide to living in Portslade

Portslade is a desirable residential area in the larger city of Brighton and Hove, consisting of two unique neighbourhoods including Portslade Village in the north and Portslade-by-Sea to the south. The original settlement of Portslade Village was constructed in the 16th century, but as Brighton's railway was expanded in 1840, the area boomed and became the busy town that one can see today with its unique flint and timbered buildings.

Portslade Village is located to the north of the A270, notable for its rural atmosphere, leafy streets, and charming village green. It's home to the St Nicolas parish church, which is the second oldest in the city and dates back to 1150. Portslade Manor is also located here, which is a fascinating example of Norman architecture first constructed in the 12th century. To the south of the A270 is Portslade-by-Sea, which includes a bustling shopping area along Station Road and historic terrace housing.

Information about the local residents

Divided in two by the A270, the greater area of Portslade includes both North Portslade and South Portslade. Census figures show that the total population of North Portslade is just over 10,000, with 4,133 total households comprised of mostly single families. South Portslade has a similar population, of just under 10,000, but the population density is far higher and this area has a more urban feeling than North Portslade's sleepy rural atmosphere. South Portslade is characterized by the Office of National Statistics as a Commuter Suburb, with many residents making the daily commute into central Brighton or London, while North Portslade hosts fewer commuters and is classified merely as a Suburb.
