Get in touch with Brighton and Hove's feminine side on a walking tour with Royal Pavilion and Museums guide, Louise Peskett.  Discover an alternative view of the city illustrated by the stories of the incredible, outrageous, and brilliant women of its past.

Join me on a gentle 90 minute walk:

History Women Brighton – Women soldiers, music-hall stars and rebellious princesses come alive on this stroll from central Brighton's oldest church through the Lanes, Pavilion Gardens and Brighton's Cultural Quarter, finishing at the Theatre Royal. 

History Women Hove – Starting in central Hove's St Ann's Well Gardens and proceeding through the area's grandest squares to the seafront, this walk follows the footsteps of some of Britain's first women doctors, suffragettes, social campaigners and artists, and takes in a pioneering women's hospital and game-changing girls' school.

History Women Kemptown - Hear how worlds as diverse as policing, fashion, education, and corsets were influenced by women who once lived in this atmospheric and historic suburb of Brighton!  Starts at St George's Church.

Victorian Working Class Brighton – During the nineteenth century the Queen's Park/Hanover area developed as a vibrant and lively working-class district.  Join me to discover traces of these long-gone communities in old shops, pubs, slipper-baths, the work-house, and school. Starts at St Luke's Church.  

The Royal Pavilion Estate – A visit inside the Royal Pavilion is a Brighton 'must-do' but what about the outside?  This hour's walk around the Royal Pavilion Gardens and surrounds explores the creation of this beautiful green space, the history of the Gardens, its adjoining gates and buildings, and its First World War legacy. 

No group too small.  Too long?  Too short?  Let me tailor a walk to your requirements. 

All walks available in French.  TEFL trained, I am experienced in guiding in simple English to language students and people without fluent English.  All levels catered for.  Language students welcome!

Don't want to walk?  I offer the above walks – and more – as seated, illustrated lectures.  Let me visit your group and enjoy the stories from the comfort of a chair.  Full list on my website http://www.historywomenbrighton.com/.
