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

It's your chance to visit the 1830s and discover more about Regency history. The Town House is being developed by staff and volunteers as a heritage centre and museum. Its activities are funded through The Brunswick Town Charitable Trust. This is a charity set up to support the project in 1992. More about us.
