Explore Brighton and Hove’s wartime heritage
Brighton & Hove, East Sussex
Commemorate the First World War with a cultural holiday in Brighton and Hove, roaming around the city’s lively cultural quarter.
This spring the Theatre Royal Brighton will host a new production of the classic play ‘Oh! What a Lovely War’, providing the perfect excuse for a WWI-themed weekend theatre break away. Brighton was a key location in the Richard Attenborough film of the play so it is only fitting that this new production comes to the seaside city before hitting the West End.
Across the road from the theatre is the exotic Royal Pavilion, where you can see images of the palace being used as a military hospital for Indian soldiers. In the Pavilion Gardens you can also see the India Gate, which was given to Brighton as a thank you from India for caring for her wounded soldiers.
