About this Event

From luxury lodgings to gorgeous grandiose: 'The story of Brighton's seafront hotels' by Karen Averby

 Since the town's emergence as an exclusive resort in the 18th century, Brighton’s visitors have required accommodation. In the early days the nobility and gentry leased their newly erected houses to friends and acquaintances for the ‘season’, but increasing visitor numbers led to the growth of commercial ventures, and permanent luxury establishments. The emergence of the grand seafront hotels in the 19th century, designed in the fashionable architecture styles of the time, represent the pinnacle of luxury seaside accommodation and are now an integral part of the seafront landscape. The fortunes of these imposing buildings reflect the fortunes of those who built, stayed and worked in them, and each hotel has its own fascinating and uniquely absorbing story.

Tickets should be purchased in advance. Regrettably, we are unable to accept payment on the door. Includes a glass of wine or soft drink.
