Wander through a hidden city orchard, hang out with a 19th-century circus troupe, find a forgotten railway line in the sea, discover Brighton’s only waterfall, visit a hidden pet cemetery, borrow books from the secret library in a fridge, unearth a long forgotten mural, browse a museum in a back-street chip shop, tap the nose of a gargoyle and make a wish, enter an Earthship, step inside a secret walled garden and play glow-in-the-dark miniature golf with dinosaurs …

Away from the clichéd seaside sights, Brighton is a city full of hidden treasures revealed to residents and travellers who like to wander off the beaten path.

Secret Brighton – An unusual guide is the perfect companion for those ready to discover the unusual and underground and see the city through new eyes.


Ellie Seymour is a journalist who has lived in Brighton for 15 years. She writes about the city’s curiosities and hidden places on her blog Ellie & Co., Inc, which she started as a way to rediscover Brighton away from the tourist crowds. She cannot walk past an intriguing alleyway or courtyard without seeing what’s on the other side – and is always looking for the next adventure or hidden place to write about.
