About us

Welcome to The Regency Town House

13 Brunswick Square, Hove, is a Regency town house built in the 1820s, as part of architect Charles Busby's Brunswick Estate.  We are an exhibition/events space and a research centre.  We have historic archives.  We are creating a museum focused on the history of Brighton & Hove between the 1780s and 1840s  

Our Grade 1 listed building and the basement at Number 10 are being restored to their former glory.  This is done by a team of volunteers.  Years of paint layers have been removed, plasterwork and mouldings repaired, and original finishes analysed and recreated.  This gives an excellent insight into the original building techniques. It also allows us to keep that expertise alive.

To raise money for restoration our volunteers organize events.  These include supper clubs, plays, readings and recitals. Our rooms are also used for art & photography exhibitions and can be booked for most events.  For more infomation email phil@rth.org.uk
