Discover Brighton - a series of history walks created by the people that live here
The nine walks are generated from the memories of people who have lived, worked or visited Brighton over the past 100 years.
All the walks are digitised to enable you to follow the route on your smartphone or tablet, with historic photographs, texts and audio recordings at the points of interest.
Take a pleasant stroll along the seafront to hear about the West Pier in its heyday and strange things hauled up in fishing nets; Discover what it was like to be gay in the 1950s and 60s and what life was like in the city during the War; Explore Brighton’s lost theatres, cinemas and shops, and hear from those whose ‘slum’ homes were demolished to make way for Churchill Square; Visit the city’s alternative spaces, peek into the terraced homes of the rich and poor, and discover Brighton’s unsung heroes.
Brighton's QueenSpark, which is the UK’s longest-running community publisher, has been documenting and archiving the lives of local people since 1972 - 'No other city in the UK has such a unique 'people's history' as that held by QueenSpark Books, and it's a testimony to the thousands of local volunteers who, over nearly 50 years, have collected these stories – and the hundreds of people that have told them. We're delighted that we can now make this history freely available to visitors and locals alike to access as they walk around the city.
