Julian was very likeable and shared both historical knowledge and humour. I liked his style of delivery and his obvious experience of guiding walks. I especially enjoyed the history around the area of Steine. I would recommend Julian's tour.

Hearing about the history and unusual fun facts about Brighton was a great introduction to the city for us. Our guide's knowledge and passion for sharing was obvious and most welcomed. A great couple of hours well spent.

We were in Brighton for a day and this experience was definitely worth it! We were running slightly late and our guide, Russell made a considerable effort to accommodate us so we don't miss out- we are very thankful for that. I would recommend this guided walk to anyone visiting Brighton, it's a lovely place and such rich history there. Definitely helped us move around easily after our tour, because we were made familiar with most of the places during the tour. Cheers!

Julian was very engaging and had lots of stories to tell. I had been to Brighton a couple of times but always found it a confusing place to visit. This tour helped me place places and made for a much better trip, using my time well. Highly recommended.

All you didn't know about Brighton in an enjoyable 90 minute walking tour.

, Jan 2022
My wife and I were joined by two gentlemen for this tour conducted by Julian, who turned out to be a font of local knowledge and a humorous raconteur. As regular visitors to Brighton we were familiar with the places and landmarks visited but fascinated by the stories about the Prinnie, Mrs Gunn and her dipping, the ghostly Chief Officer in the town hall basement, the secret passages and many other little nuggets of information that brought Brighton's' houses, former inhabitants, streets and lanes to life.
