Welcome

The Regency Town House is a grade I Listed terraced home of the mid-1820s being developed as a heritage centre and museum to focus on the architecture and social history of Brighton & Hove between the 1780s and 1840s.

During the Regency period Brighton enjoyed an unrivalled status as the provincial capital of fashionable British society. It was, perhaps, Europe's foremost seaside spa, a legacy that is today reflected in the city's rich architectural heritage of grand Regency terraces and elegant back streets.
