Photo of the Regency Town House front aspect

The Regency Town House is a grade I listed terraced house. It was built in the mid-1820s. It is being developed as a heritage centre and museum. It will focus on the architecture and social history of Brighton & Hove between 1780 and 1850.

During the Regency period Brighton was the provincial capital of fashionable British society. It was Europe's foremost seaside spa. That legacy is today reflected in the city's rich architectural heritage. Brighton & Hove has many grand Regency terraces and elegant back streets.
