The Regency Society welcomes everyone who cares about our city's built heritage and future townscape

The Regency Society has worked since 1945 to ensure that the fabric of our city is appropriate to the changing needs of the people who live here.  We believe that Brighton and Hove deserves the highest possible quality in planning, design and construction. We work, often together with other amenity groups, to protect the best in our city from any era and to encourage excellence in new development. We're involved in all aspects of Brighton and Hove's built environment including consultation on key planning matters, campaigning to protect our heritage and encouraging debate and discussion on matters of current importance.  See our news page to read about our current concerns

Our James Gray Photographic Archive contains over 7,000 historic photographs of Brighton and Hove. It contains unique historic images of many areas of the city not included in other collections. Visit the James Gray Photographic Archive
