Quick Reference

Originally Brithelmston, a Sussex fishing village, Brighton developed rapidly from the mid‐18th cent., when Dr Richard Russell recommended its health‐giving air. It was patronized by Fanny Burney, Samuel Johnson (1770), and from 1784 by George, prince of Wales. Brighton's original classical Royal Pavilion, built by Henry Holland (1784), was redeveloped by Nash in oriental style with an Indian exterior and Chinese interior (1817).
