If you care about our
city, this is your home
We were founded in 1945 to oppose the proposed demolition of the Regency terraces and squares of the Brighton and Hove seafront. Today, we work with other societies and the council to protect all that is best in our city – of any era – and promote excellence in new development.
The Regency Society is the oldest amenity and conservation society in Brighton and Hove and a registered charity.
If it affects the physical environment, we're involved – from consultation on key planning matters to a range of educational initiatives designed to inform and inspire everyone who cares about the quality of life in this exceptional city.
We run a lecture series during the winter months, and also host visits, trips and social occasions for members. Read more
