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

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

I have only just moved to Brighton so this was a good opportunity to find out some of the little-known facts that you perhaps don't read about in the official guides. Starting at the Al Duomo we took in the Brighton Pavilion, the Dome, a bit about the local architecture, Anita Roddick's first shop, plus some interesting facts about quirky... More

We enjoyed this tour as part of a Living Social voucher deal. It was more than worth the money, and the information and anecdotes were fantastic. Would certainly recommend it to any visitors as well as to locals wishing to find out more about their hometown. Especially moving to hear about the man who moved into a smart seafront hotel,...

Despite the windswept and rainy backdrop Rick's walking tour of the Brighton Laine area was full of interest and intrigue. As a 'nearly a local' who's lived in this amazing city for 19 years there were loads of fascinating facts and curios to mull over and raise a grin. Well priced, well paced: the 80 mins flew past. I can... More

A tour for all ages, through all ages of Brighton. Our group comprised kids, young and a little bit less young, locals and foreigners, and we all had a great time. The evening tour concept was perfect; the life and energy of the day still lingering in the air, but without the huzzle and buzzle. Our friendly and knowledgeable guide... More
