A-Z of Brighton and Hove: Places-People-History by Kevin Newman
The Sussex seaside towns of Brighton and Hove have been a city since 2000 and attract millions of visitors every year. The city boasts a wealth of history and in this book local author Kevin Newman takes the reader on a selective and engaging tour of Britain's premier coastal resort. A-Z of Brighton and Hove delves into the stories behind the city's most notable streets, places, parks and buildings, as well as the dark secrets of its inhabitants, hidden lanes and 'twittens' (the Sussex name for alleyways). The book reveals the stories behind of some of the more unusual place names and the history of many of its distinctive features, and also tales of the city's less famous (and infamous) sons and daughters and the places they frequented. It provides something for everyone, whether visiting or a citizen of the 'Old Ocean's Bauble'.
