On this walk you will find out about who is living in one of the most desirable places in the country; what they are doing whilst staying here and, most importantly, where you need to be seen. Find out which buildings still survive and which are no more. The walk is based on extensive research using contemporary guides, diaries and newspapers.

The guided walk will commence from The Regency Town House and last approximately one hour. Only in very adverse weather will the walk be cancelled. There is also the option of staying after the tour for a cream tea served in the old basement kitchen of The Regency Town House. We'll also give those at the tea a quick tour of the Town House too.

"A wonderful experience with Mr.Adams - most informative."

"I have lived in Brighton all my life and I learnt things I never knew."

"A great way to learn about the history of Brighton."

"A fascinating insight into that period. Henry Adams really brings the past alive and captures the essence of the era."

Andrew Bradstreet (aka Henry Adams) is a member of Regency Delights and the award winning historical recreations at Kentwell Hall. He has over thirty years of experience in bringing the past alive for people.

There is a consideration of £10 (plus a small booking fee) per person for the walk.

Please note: Mr Adams will be in 1831 and will remain so throughout the walk!
