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.

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

Really enjoyed this guided tour of Brighton. Despite having lived in Brighton for seven years we learnt lots of quirky and fun facts about the city and spotted things we had never noticed before. We would really recommend it.

There is a lot of history about the city so where do you start. Ric does a great job of covering interesting snippets from past and recent history. Also the tour is at a great time to leave the rest of the evening free for a beer.
