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 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. « less

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.

Really enjoyed the tour. The guide was friendly and very informative. It was also a little quirky and different which I loved. I learnt a lot about Brighton that I would never of known. I would definitely recommend this tour to people that are willing to learn a bit more about this amazing place.

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.

A friendly guide took us for an overview of Brighton offering us some funny and quirky snippets of information that we might have never read about. A very pleasant way to spend around 80 mins, all easy walking, before dinner. Got a 2for1 voucher from the VisitBrighton website, making it good value for money.

We did this tour as party of a hen weekend. The tour last 90 minutes which was just right to see the main sights. The tour guide was very knowledgable about Brighton and it's history. It was a great way to see the main sights and get your bearings around a very packed small town. Definitely worth it if it's... More

This is a great tour for anyone who loves Brighton - and who doesn't? You get to see some of the famous sights, but some less well known ones too, at least to us. And Ric is obviously extremely knowledgeable and passionate about his subject. A lovely way to start your evening.

I was so lucky to be the only participant in the tour-that is I had a private tour! Rick did a great job. You get know the not so known historical facts of this really unique town.Who knew that Body Shop was founded there in the early seventies?

As residents of Brighton & Hove we took the 'only in Brighton' walking tour as we were sure that there is still lots to learn about the city we live in. And there certainly is! The tour was very informative and light hearted and we learnt a lot about Brighton that we didn't know. Rick is a very amusing tour... More
