About us

Welcome to The Regency Town House

The House at 13 Brunswick Square, Hove, is a fine Regency town house built in the 1820's as part of Charles Busby's Brunswick Estate.  We are creating an archive and museum focused on the history of Brighton & Hove between the 1780's and 1840's.

With volunteered help and expertise, this Grade 1 listed building, plus the basement at Number 10 are slowly being restored to their former glory.  Years of paint layers have been removed, plasterwork and mouldings repaired, and original finishes analysed and recreated.  This gives an excellent insight into not only the original building techniques used, but allows us to keep such expertise alive.

To raise funds for restoration our volunteers organize various installations, including plays, readings and recitals.  Even whilst undergoing restoration our elegant spaces are used for supper clubs, art & photography exhibitions and can be booked for other non-profit events.
