This book is the first comprehensive guide to the historic heart of Brighton and Hove, the greatest of England's seaside resorts. A series of walks trace its development from late medieval fishing settlement to the "Queen of the Watering Places," with a lively and critical commentary on its unique architectural character. Few cities can boast such an exotic diversity of buildings, from the outlandish Pavilion, playground of the Prince Regent, to genteel squares and terraces, Victorian architecture both serious and whimsical and landmarks of twentieth century modernism. This guide will delight resident and visitor alike.

 

 

Nicholas Antram lived in Brighton for many years. He is co-author of the Leicestershire volumes of the Pevnser Architectural Guides and was formerly on the staff of English Heritage. Richard Morrice also works for English Heritage.

“Like its predecessors this will prove to be the best one-volume guide one can have.” - Contemporary Review

“…no more reliable guidance than the…city guides which are modestly priced and easily portable, yet represent a growing corpus of sound architectural evaluation and critical commentary… [and] have now come under the authoritative scrutiny of two highly respected IHBC members.  [Brighton and Hove are] well worth greater exploration, especially with this excellent guide in hand." - Bob Kindred MBE, Context
