The Grand Hotel, Brighton – A Stunning Victorian Hotel on the Sea Front

Brighton is located on the south coast of England. It was The place to visit by the upper class in the summer months and led to a town and area that quickly prospered.

In 1864 The Grand Hotel was opened and remains to this day probably the most expensive hotel on the coast.

Sadly it is infamous for the attempted assasination on then Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, who was there for the Conservative party conference. The Provisional IRA planted a bomb that left cabinet member Norman Tebbit’s wife paralysed. Margaret Thatcher survived and opened the conference the following morning in defiance.

The hotel has columns of marble and grand stair cases that are photo worthy. The rooms are spacious but any modernising would strip this hotel of its magnificence.
