The Spirit of Brighton

If you could condense the spirit of a town into one building, Artist Residence Brighton would be it. Creative, bohemian and downright eccentric, this 24-bedroom townhouse at the head of Regency Square was reborn when we sent out an ad offering artists free board in return for their services. As a result, each room is a riot of original artwork and local character, with eye-popping sea views over the iconic West Pier. Guests can dine out at Dan Kenny's refined 20-cover restaurant The Set, or enjoy the playful Cocktail Shack and hidden drinking den, The Curious Mr Hanbury.
