Description: What connects Abba and a panty-less celebrity? Mount Everest and Tescos in...
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.

Fabulous evening! Ric is clearly well-experienced in developing, structuring and delivering tours. The tour included a nice variety of interesting stops and facts, some humour and a pleasant stroll through the lanes and alleys of Brighton (about 90 mins). As a Kemp Town resident, I was already aware of many of the facts but Ric delivered them in a fresh... More

Ric gave me a new view on the Brighton I've lived in for nearly 10 years. My eyes were opened to places I didn't know were there or places that I've casually strolled past without a clue about their history. Ric is funny, interesting and obviously loves this city for the fascinating and often eccentric place it is. A great... More

Even though we have lived in Brighton for years, this was an interesting tour with some quirky stop offs. Well, it is Brighton after all. Our almost grown-up children enjoyed it too. It's funny how you can miss the significance of things you've walked past on numerous occasions, so it was handy that Ric was there to point them all... More

Ric was firstly very efficient when I contacted him trying to book a tour for Monday the night before, he got back to me within hours and everything was arranged. We met him at the arranged time and that was the beginning of our fantastic tour. He organised it really well and had a file with pictures to show us... More

Really enjoyed this tour, lighthearted but still loads of interesting and unusual facts about Brighton. This tour was a great way to spend 90 mins with my parents who were down visiting , worth doing for those like me who live in Brighton as well as for visitors from outside the town.

I thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience and Ric was a fantastic tour guide. He knew everything about Brighton and I loved finding out about intriguing people, places, stories and fun and sometimes bizarre facts and about the city. I will definitely go on another one of Ric's tours and am so glad I didn't miss out on this one!

Rick was an excellent tour guide, and the tour was absolutely fascinating. He knew absolutely everything about Brighton, and provided a lot of excellent local history and little-known details. A really great way to see Brighton, and a very good value, too!

A walk that went very quickly, Rick our guide was informative and fun, didn't realise how much there was to know about Brighton, a great way either to walk off food or pre eating would highly recommend
