Wander through a hidden city orchard, hang out with a 19th-century circus troupe, find a forgotten railway line in the sea, discover Brighton’s only waterfall, visit a hidden pet cemetery, borrow books from the secret library in a fridge, unearth a long-forgotten mural, browse a museum in a back-street chip shop, tap the nose of a gargoyle and make a wish, enter an Earthship, step inside a secret walled garden and play glow-in-the-dark miniature golf with dinosaurs.
Away from the clichéd seaside sights, Brighton is a city full of hidden treasures revealed to residents and travellers who like to wander off the beaten path.
Secret Brighton is the perfect companion for those ready to discover the unusual and underground and see the city through new eyes.
Ellie Seymour is a journalist who has lived in Brighton for 15 years. She writes about the city’s curiosities and hidden places on her blog Ellie & Co., Inc, which she started as a way to rediscover Brighton away from the tourist crowds. She cannot walk past an intriguing alleyway or courtyard without seeing what’s on the other side – and is always looking for the next adventure or hidden place to write about.
