North Laine Guided Walks

Take a guided tour of historic North Laine-Brighton’s industrial suburb for over 100 years. This tour will introduce you to this Conservation Area which is well known as an off-beat area full of independent shops and restaurants but behind the shops is a historic area with enough surviving old buildings to give you a glimpse into Victorian Brighton. Come and find out where water, wood and meat were turned into beer, furniture and food, and where Brighton’s working class found their entertainment. The tours start from outside Brighton Museum at 11am on Sundays and 6pm on Wednesdays and last about 1 hour 15 minutes. There is a cost of £3 which goes towards the North Laine Community Association.
