Being the most historic hotel in Brighton, The Old Ship Hotel plays an integral role in Brighton?s history. The hotel was closely linked with the escape of Charles II in 1651, and was home to Brighton?s elegant assembly rooms where many a grand occasion has been held; from the Prince Regent's Ball in 1819, to Nicolo Paganini's violin recital in 1831, and the banquet celebrating the opening of the London to Brighton Railway in 1841 to name a few. In 1995 the hotel?s wine cellars were lovingly restored and now offer a unique venue for private dining and events.
This striking Georgian property is on the seafront, overlooking Brighton beach. Modern rooms are just a 5-minute walk from Brighton Pier, shops, lively bars and popular restaurants.The spectacular Royal Pavilion and the neighbouring Theatre Royal and Brighton Dome can be reached with just a 5-minute stroll. Brighton Rail Station is 0.5 miles from the hotel.
