Author: Christopher Horlock, Historic England

This illustrated history portrays one of England’s finest cities. It provides a nostalgic look at this ‘city of sin’ and ‘Queen of watering places’ and highlights the special character of some of its most important historic sites. The photographs are taken from the unique Historic England Archive, the nation’s record of 12 million photographs, drawings and publications, ranging from the 1850s and the earliest days of photography up to the present day.

Historic England: Brighton shows the city as it once was, from its famous 'lanes' that were the heart of this former fishing village, to its Royal Pavilion, Grand Hotel, West Pier, and Brighton Palace Pier. 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 and today it remains a fashionable and popular tourist destination. This book helps you discover its remarkable history.
