What connects Abba and a panty-less celebrity? Mount Everest and Tescos in Hove? A stained wall and the genesis of a worldwide retail brand? What's the story behind a same-sex wedding in 1923...Britain's 'most useless' monarch...a certain Parisian radio station? Why is my charming Regency property crumbling?

Only in Brighton is a vivid 80-minute guided walk - a curiously fact-filled and tongue-in-cheek look at the landmarks, past and present, that make Brighton a city like no other. For the visitor, it is an insider's introduction; for the hardened Brightonian, a revelation and celebration. This personal tribute cuts to the heart of a unique city in all its glory, shame and muesli.

Tours most Fridays and Saturdays 7pm April-November. Check website to confirm dates.

£8/6. Meet outside Al Duomo restaurant, by Royal Pavilion Shop. No need to book.

Private tours available outside normal hours - email to ask.

A fascinating insight into Brighton, even as a regular visitor I learned a few things. Funny as well.

Went on Friday 19th Aug, just turned up at the Pavilion as the evening had brightened up with my friend and our 15 year old daughters and so glad we did as this was a very interesting tour with Rick and even our daughters enjoyed it as not the usual boring facts type tour. Rick had lots of interesting tales... More

We saw an ad for this tour only last minute and decided to join. Although we had walked through the city for the entire day already, Rick, the tour guide, succeeded in surprising us with new sights and facts about the city. This is a very relaxed and enjoyable walking tour!

A good way to acquaint yourself with the streets and general points of interest. The guide was clever and made it a fun Experience with the odd touch of magic. Very enjoyable. Can be recommended.

We have lived in Brighton for 18 months and, after noticing it in the Brighton Fringe Festival brochure, decided to get to know our city better. We thoroughly enjoyed it and learnt lots of quirky facts. The guide was witty & informative and the tour ran to time.
