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

We've campaigned since 1945 for Brighton and Hove's past and future heritage. This continues today. The Regency Society encourages excellence in conservation, planning, design and construction. We care about both the past and future of our city.

We comment and campaign, often with other organisations whose interests we share. Consultation on key planning matters and campaigning to protect our heritage are at the heart of our work. Our regular discussions also encourage other people to join in and contribute.  See our news page to read about our current concerns.

Alongside this, our James Gray Photographic Archive helps others to appreciate and enjoy our heritage. Containing over 7,000 often unique historic photographs, it gives a special insight into the history of Brighton and Hove. Visit the James Gray Photographic Archive

In addition, regular events open to the public highlight topics linked to our interests. We also run visits, trips and social occasions for members. Read about our lectures and events.

Our members receive regular updates on our work. We publish a journal twice a year. We'd be delighted if you would like to join us. Read about our publications
