    Last orders in Brighton & Hove

    72 photographs

    This is not an A-Z of the pubs and clubs of Brighton & Hove, but a quirky collection of pub signs, traditional interiors, long forgotten exteriors and strange happenings! If you've got photographs of your mispent youth drinking in the hosteleries of Brighton & Hove, remember you can upload them to the site for inclusion in this unique collection.

  • Sport


    Supporting the home team whatever the weather

    88 photographs

    Brighton & Hove Albion has had a chequered history in the city since 1901, but football is not the only sport to feature high on the list of recreational activities for Brighton residents. The Brighton Bears basketball team was also well established but sadly the team is now in hibernation. Bowls and golf on local authority courses are still thriving.

    Alternative retail therapy in Brighton & Hove

    417 photographs

    With so many high streets looking the same these days, the city is refreshingly different with its alternative shops and street markets. Where else could you find a tatooist, a 'peace' shop and a vegetarian shoe outlet all on the same street? Of course, it wasn't always like this, but gone are the days when large department stores dominated. Hannington's and Courts closed their doors long ago, but thankfully some independents are holding out.

  • Weddings and civil partnerships

    When the Prince Regent first decorated the Royal Pavilion he could have been forgiven for not considering it as a backdrop for weddings and civil partnerships! This group of 'partnership' photographs have been donated to the Brighton & Hove photographic collection by the happy couples. If you have a "By the powers vested in me" photograph taken in the city, please submit it.

  • Transport


    Getting around the city

    142 photographs

    The public transport in Brighton & Hove has a history dating back to 1840. Today, it has a major railway station, an extensive bus and coach service, a large number of taxis and in the past it has had trolley buses, ferries, trams, auto rickshaws and hydrofoil services. Getting around the city by car can be difficult and drivers can be forgiven for complaining about the cost of parking. However, Brighton & Hove County Council leads the way with its transport plan which aims to reduce congestion, improve road safety, improve air quality and provide greater accessibility.
