The Regency Society welcomes everyone

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.

Our images collection help others to appreciate and enjoy our heritage. Containing over 500 prints and 7,500 often unique historic photographs, they give a special insight into the history of Brighton and Hove.

The original version of the James Gray Photographic Archive remains available but has been completely revised as Historical and Contemporary Images of Brighton and Hove. We also host the Society of Brighton Print Collectors of images mostly from before the days of photography.

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

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