The Chapel Royal is an 18th-century place of worship in the centre of Brighton, part of the English city of Brighton and Hove.
Built as a Chapel of Ease, it became one of Brighton's most important churches, gaining its own parish and becoming closely associated with the Prince Regent and fashionable Regency-era society.
The Chapel Royal remains an active church in the inclusive-catholic tradition of the Church of England.
'The church building was completed in August 1820, within 14 months of the land purchase. Dr Morell, a well-known classical scholar, was appointed as the first minister of the church. Due, in a large extent to his influence, its design was inspired by the ancient Temple of Theseus in Athens. Its architect was Amon Henry Wilds – who built much of Brighton’s fashionable KempTown.'
'Chapel Royal is the Church of England’s parish for central Brighton. We are enriched by one of the most diverse communities in the city.
Everyone is welcome at Chapel Royal, exactly as they are.'
Chapel Royal is located on North St, on the southern boundary of the Royal Pavillion Gardens, directly opposite Hannington’s Lane.
Chapel Royal is wheelchair friendly, with disabled facilities. They have an induction loop for services.
'We are an inclusive and vibrant community and do not insist that each person has the same beliefs.
We do believe that each of us can flourish when we are enabled to find our own spiritual truth in the light of our own conscience and a loving, respectful community.'
Brighton Unitarian Church is situated at the north end of New Road, close to the Brighton Dome, Royal Pavilion and the Theatre Royal. New Road is a restricted access zone and is a pedestrianised area.
Brighton i360 was designed by the architectural company Marks Barfield, which also designed the London Eye. The building was conceived as a "vertical pier". The tower is located at the shore end of the ruined West Pier, and the design recreated the original Italianate ticket booths of the West Pier, placed on either side of the entrance, serving as ticket office and tea room. The design also includes a beachfront building that allows access to the tower and houses a brasserie, café and gift shop.
