Brighton and Hove’s Heritage Open Days 2017 – a resounding success!
This years Heritage Open Days in and around Brighton and Hove has been a tremendous success!
This annual celebration of England’s glorious and often overlooked and forgotten architectural and cultural buildings has been extremely interesting and the Brighton & Hove News reporters have really enjoyed themselves and would really like to thank all of the volunteers that have made our 4 days a truly memorable experience – we have learnt so much about some of our city’s exceptional buildings.
If you failed to attend any of this year’s events, then we would strongly recommend that you allow time to do so for 2018 – visit: https://www.heritageopendays.org.uk/

Lived in Brighton many years and found photos of places I’d never entered fascinating.
Great event, thank you for some great photos
I am glad that you enjoyed them Martin
Yes Norman it was very fascinating! Thanks for your interest.
Interesting and great photos. Must do a Duke of Yorks tour as have been a member for many years. Including Numan in La la land. First saw two Bond films there in the 70s as a kid.
Thanks for your interest Jan.
More fascinating pictures of things we would not normally see even if we walked past them every day. Thank you for sharing these.
Thank you for reading the article and taking time to comment.
