Photo of the Regency Town House front aspect

The Regency Town House is a grade I listed terraced house in the heart of Brunswick Town, a Georgian estate. It is in the City of Brighton & Hove on the Sussex coast. It was built in the mid-1820s. It is being developed as a heritage centre and museum.

Our activities are funded through The Brunswick Town Charitable Trust, a charity set up to support the project in 1992. More about us.

Visit the Town House on a guided tour, or find out more about the project here.
