A-Z of Brighton and Hove Summary

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'.

About Kevin Newman

Kevin Newman is an author of history textbooks who also advises theatre and TV production companies on their historical plays and programmes. As well as being a GCSE History examiner, he gives a number of historical talks and presentations throughout the South of England every year and still manages to squeeze in some history teaching when not running his organisation, All-Inclusive History. A full time history teacher for 15 years, Kevin always tried to bring the past alive through exploring its buildings, and still takes educational and corporate groups, such as Sotherby's School of Art on architectural tours.
