Brighton Boozers: A History of the City’s Pub Culture (2005)

Written to tie-in with the successful Brighton Boozers exhibitions at Brighton History Centre and Jubilee Library, 2005-2006.

A lighthearted look at the social history of pubs, taverns and alehouses, past and present, in the town once dubbed the “Queen of Watering Places”. The book explores the changing face of Brighton’s pub culture, from traditional street corner pubs to trendy bars and features chapters on the Temperance movement, haunted pubs, gay pubs, breweries,  memorable characters, ‘dens of iniquity’ and how some pubs got their names.

‘Attractive, refreshing and interesting.’
