Roedean: Then and Now - Roedean School Tour


Roedean School, Roedean Way, Brighton & Hove, East Sussex, BN2 5RQ


Come and walk the corridors of one of the first girls' boarding schools in the country. Hear about how Sir John Simpson's inspiring architecture of Roedean School influenced his design of the original Wembley Stadium and discover how his Grade II listed buildings characterise the classic 'Arts and Crafts' movement of 1860 to 1910.
Learn how the school is setting the standard for boarding in the 21st Century through its transformational redesign of its five boarding houses. Not normally accessible to the public, the Saturday tour ends a with a trip down Roedean’s secret tunnel to the undercliff walk connecting to Brighton Marina. Approx. 90 mins. (Wear comfortable shoes and bring a torch if going down the tunnel).

Visitors are reminded that they are touring a working girls school and to dress accordingly. Visitors in inappropriate clothing (e.g. small shorts) will not be admitted.
