Theatre Royal Brighton – Surroundings and where to eat?

Theatre Royal Brighton is one of the oldest and most iconic theatres in the country. The grade II listed building is ideally situated in the centre of Brighton’s cultural district, with the Royal Pavilion opposite and surrounded by the popular Lanes and North Laine areas. The theatre has been in existence since 1807 and is the perfect example of the Regency architecture of that period.
