From the Kissing Policeman to the Kiss Wall
Brighton & Hove, East Sussex
Brighton & Hove is an artistic hub with a wide variety of art galleries, the biggest of which is the city itself.
The North Laine area is a must for street art fans. The Prince Albert pub under Brighton Station is the site of Banksy’s famous ‘Kissing Policeman’. Wander the streets of the North Laine and you’ll soon see the whole area has become a gallery with everything becoming a canvas – from walls to cable boxes.
In addition to street art the city is also home to sculptures. Download the sculpture trail and see if you can get round them all. Highlights include the ‘Kiss Wall’ on the seafront featuring six kissing couples and celebrating the diversity of Brighton’s population.
Also on the seafront is ‘Afloat’; the shape is based on the globe where the north and south poles are pushed together forming a central hole, which is why locally the sculpture is known as the doughnut.
