The Regency Town House is a grade I Listed terraced home of the mid-1820s being developed as a heritage centre and museum to focus on the architecture and social history of Brighton & Hove between the 1780s and 1840s.
At this time in history, broadly defined as the Regency period, Brighton enjoyed an unrivalled status as the provincial capital of fashionable British society and was, perhaps, Europe's foremost seaside spa. A legacy that is, today, reflected in the city's rich architectural heritage of grand Regency terraces and elegant back streets.
Regular tours of the House are offered throughout the warmer months of the year and by arrangement during the winter period. All visits must be pre-booked.
Take a look at our collection of transcribed letters, written from 1824 to 1870, which provide us with an insight into general family life during the late-Regency period.
