Brighton & Hove in 50 Buildings is an exciting new look at one of Britain's most famous and influential cities, telling the story of this `city of sin' and `Queen of watering places'. Readers experience a fresh look at the one-time fishing village through fifty of its most famous, unusual and influential buildings. It is not simply a guide to Brighton's most famous architecture, but looks also at the buildings that tell a story, whether it be of the rich and famous, the adventurous, the go-getters and those left behind in a destination first built for the rich and regal. The book takes you across the many different areas of the city and covers buildings from royal retreats to tourist favourites.
