STREET Seaside trip to Brighton

Saturday 24 September 2011 - 10:00
Brighton (Departing from London Victoria)

Pack up your bucket and spade as STREET hit the seaside for a day trip to Brighton!

Brighton is an ancient settlement with reference to Brighthelmstone in the Domesday Book, but it emerged as a health resort in theeighteenth century when people were drawn there forsea bathing.

The arrival of the railway in the mid-nineteenth century made thetown a popular destination for day-trippers and sparkeda growth in population. Over the last 10 years gentrification of Brighton has seen the return of the fashionable crowds whichcharacterised the town in the Regency period.

We plan to visit such areas as New England Quarter, North Laine, Jubilee Street, New Road, Town Hall, The Sea Front and Victoria Gardens to hear about existing, ongoing and proposed projects. We will also experience the planned and non planned interaction of pedestrians and cyclists!

We will be taking the train from London Victoria at 10:06, the tour will take up to lunch time and you can make your own way back on the regular trains that go to London Victoria or London Bridge.

The tour is being organised by Katy Neaves and Niltay Tosun-Erdem. This event will be cost free but you will need to pay the train fare.

Places are limited please register via streetlondon@urban-design-group.org.uk.
