The Regency Town House, built in the 1820s, is a grade 1 listed terraced house in the heart of Brunswick Town, a Georgian estate in the City of Brighton & Hove on the Sussex coast.

It is being developed by staff & volunteers as a heritage centre and museum, with its activities funded through The Brunswick Town Charitable Trust, a charity set up to support the project in 1992. More about us.
