Join Blue Badge Tourist Guide Pat Langford for this gentle stroll along Brighton seafront and hear how Brighton (or as it was known for centuries, Brighthelmstone) came close to vanishing altogether in the 1740s only to be saved by one Doctor’s advice. Who was he and what did he tell people to do? Who were the people who flooded into the town and which notorious Prince threw them some scandalous parties? Who was ‘The Shampooing Surgeon”? How did the child of a simple fishing family rise to become a Royal favourite? Whose rescue in a ‘Surprise’ mission changed the course of English history? And just what is ‘Bungaroosh’?  For the answers to all these questions and plenty of other fascinating Brighton facts, book this walk
