The Royal Pavilion

The Royal Pavilion is testament to the flamboyant and sophisticated taste of George IV. It is a unique and extraordinary building, which has played a key role in the development of Brighton and its international reputation.

The Keep

The Keep, a state-of-the-art, contemporary building for archival records, houses the collections of the East Sussex County Record Office, the Royal Pavilion & Museums Local History Collection, the internationally significant University of Sussex Special Collections, and the Sussex Family History Group library and headquarters.

Farley Farmhouse

Farley Farm House, the former Sussex home of Lee Miller and Roland Penrose, can be considered a unique testament to the Surrealists. It displays works by Penrose and Miller, and items from their collections. Farley Farm House still retains the atmosphere created by its owners and their famous visitors who included Picasso, Man Ray, Max Ernst and Richard Hamilton.

The New Encylopaedia of Brighton

The informative and entertaining New Encyclopaedia of Brighton by acclaimed biographer Rose Collis, was published twenty years after the original Encyclopaedia of Brighton. It combines the best of the original text with hundreds of new subjects, starting with 'Abattoirs' and ending with 'Zap Club'. The sections in the Encyclopaedia reflect the city's rich, diverse and quirky history, as well as the many changes that have occurred.
