500 years of history in 8 walks
Walking Brighton will take you from fine Regency Squares of Kemp Town to the back streets of Albion Hill to tell the incredible story of how two humble fishing villages became the city of Brighton and Hove.
Walk through Brunswick and find the identity of a headless statue, learn about Brighton’s famous ’trunk’ murders’, visit a pub founded by a Dutch Protestant who was burnt at the stake and discover Puget’s Cottage in Old Brighthelmstone, whose ancient walls are partly made of discarded ship’s ballast.
The 8 walks in this book include detailed maps, recommendations of the best places to eat and drink and lots of photos to help you enjoy exploring the city. With this book in hand the streets and narrow alleyways of the city will tell some of their secrets.
Walking Brighton and Hove will surprise both seasoned residents and first time visitors alike with the remarkable story of how two sleepy fishing villages became today’s vibrant city.
