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? And what's up with the local paper? Only in Brighton...Only in Brighton is a vivid 80-minute guided walk. It is 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-October. Check website to confirm dates. £8/6. Meet outside Al Duomo restaurant. No need to book. « less

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

We kicked off the Brighton Fringe Festival with a walking tour through sunny Brighton hosted by the guide Ric Morris. Instead of the 'Only in Brighton' tour we took part in the 'Queers & Piers' tour and ... I would highly recommend it! The nearly 90 minute tour started at Regency Square and takes you on a 'rollercoaster ride' through... More

Excellent tour with a real mix of facts and information. I loved the combination of historical context with more quirky tidbits. The tour guide's blatant passion for and interest in all things 'Brighton' was palpable. We also got to see a good selection of Brighton landmarks as well as covering a fair bit of the city centre. Great experience, would... More

The walking tour had some interesting facts but the delivery could have been a bit better and the content a little lacking. Considering the number of times he must have done the tour the guide frequently consulted his notes. We also felt that he could have been more friendly and spoken to us as we walked between the 'points of... More

Thank you for your review. I'm sorry the tour didn't live up to your expectations. I try to be sensitive to the preferences of the audience: some people enjoy a chat with the guide, while others prefer to be left alone to listen in their own space with their partner or group. I clearly misjudged the situation here, and I'm... More

I booked a private tour for my partner and I's anniversary with the notion we want to know the nitty gritty of Brighton. Ric provides an insight like no other. Quirky photos, words, stories and amazement along the way. It's great to street map where you go as we returned to a number of places afterwards! Worthwhile tour for residents... More

A great tour from Rick last night, I learnt things I never could have picked up in one short weekend. Very worthwhile and made my solo travel trip much more enjoyable and entertaining. I recommend that anyone that visits Brighton goes on this tour.

What a Great tour! Rick our tour guide gave us a very interesting knowledge of Brighton, from the shoddy way the regency-style buildings were built using Bungaroosh to the reason why the first Bodyshop was painted green. From the year Brighton presented the Eurovision song contest that helped launch a certain band on their way to fame! To the murmurations... More
