Brighton has long been an important seaside town, and today draws in visitors from all over Britain and beyond for its varied nightlife, rich history and attractive waterfront. In 1800, Brighton had forty-one inns and taverns, and by 1860 there were well over 450, echoing the town's growth in popularity through the Regency and early Victorian eras. A recent resurgence of interest in real ale has also seen a welcome boom in micro-breweries, placing Brighton firmly on the beer-lover's map. David Muggleton takes us on a tour of these watering holes, from the ancient Cricketers (allegedly continuously licensed since the fourteenth century) to the elaborate mock-Tudor King and Queen. Brimming with quirky tales and fascinating facts, this carefully-crafted guide initiates readers into the fascinating history of Brighton's pubs.
