Being the LGBTQ Capital of Britain, Brighton is a city steeped in fascinating history, fierce protests, and scandalous flamboyancy. Discover all this and more on a 90-minute guided tour through the streets and Lanes, the perfect day out for Brighton locals and tourists alike!
Starting at the Brighton Museum and Art Gallery, the walking tour passes the Pavilion, heads along the sea front, and meanders through the famous Lanes to cover the most prominent locations within the history of LGBTQ life. The enthusiastic guide will regale you with stories of political activism, what it was like to be gay in 1950's Brighton, and how the city celebrated and supported the first civil partnerships in England. You'll also be treated to lesser known tales about drag kings and queens, and how Brighton is linked to famous LGBTQ figures like Dusty Springfield and Oscar Wilde. By the end of the 90 minute tour you'll appreciate why Brighton is host to the biggest Gay Pride festival in the country!
