Tour description

Join a born and bred Brightonian with 480 of Brighton ancestry on a tour where a percentage of tips even goes to a local homeless charity.

Why was Brighton Palace built as an Indian mosque? How did two women get married in 1923? Why did tourists drink sea water and even mix it with milk? Wives for sale, a railway at sea, a useless king, and a chandelier war hospital, the Free Brighton Walking Tour has it all. Plus, you'll get to see the oldest electric railway in the universe, the world's first vertical cable car, and England's most instagrammable view outside of London.
 Highlights throughout the tour:

  • The Royal Pavilion
  • The dome theater
  • The rails
  • Old steine
  • Volk Railway
  • Brighton Palace Pier
  • The west pier
  • Brighton i360

The tour ends at the Brighton Seafront opposite Jury's Inn.

Useful and important information for the traveler:

- Your guide will be wearing a visor for your safety. 

- Check the availability calendar. Tours take place rain or shine.
 - It is advisable to arrive 10 minutes in advance as the tour will begin at the announced time.
 - Distance: Approximately 2 kilometers / 1.3 miles.
 Clothing: It is often colder on the boardwalk than inland, so wear appropriate clothing. It is also a good idea to check the weather forecast and bring rain gear if it is forecasting rain.
 - This tour is accessible for people in wheelchairs.
 - If you are more than ten people in your group, please contact me about private tours.

Charitable support:Part of the money from each tour goes to a local homeless charity.

Muchos datos curiosos sobre Brighton, además de su fascinante historia. Nat sabe español, así que, si bien el tour es en inglés, puedes preguntar cosas en tu idioma

We really enjoyed the tour with Nat. He was very friendly and knowledgeable about Brighton. The only negative was that we thought we were at the wrong starting point ...
