The south coast city of Brighton has long been one of Britain’s most famous and influential places, ever since the Prince of Wales, later George IV, began to visit regularly, constructed the Royal Pavilion and thus encouraged its development as a fashionable seaside resort. Brighton continued to grow as a major tourist centre following the arrival of the railways in 1841, becoming a popular destination for day-trippers from London.

In this fascinating collection of images from the Victorian and Edwardian eras, author Christopher Horlock shows Brighton at the height of its fame as the ‘Queen of watering places’, a time when many of her major attractions were built, including the Grand Hotel, the West Pier, and the Brighton Palace Pier. Brighton From Old Photographs provides something for everyone, be they long-time residents or first-time visitors.
