The Regency Townhouse, which sits at 13 Brunswick Square, was originally built as part of Charles Busby’s Brunswick Estate in the 1920’s. However, nowadays the building serves as a museum, showcasing Brighton and Hove life and culture in the period between the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries. The Grade 1 building has now been expertly restored, allowing visitors to witness a true showcase of Brighton’s rich history, which will be highlighted even further in Saturday’s open day. It’s truly not to be missed by those of you interested in our city’s past – of which we know there are many of you!
