If you care about our city, this is your home
The Regency Society is the oldest amenity and conservation society in Brighton and Hove and a registered charity.
We were founded in 1945 to oppose the proposed demolition of the Regency terraces and squares of the Brighton and Hove seafront. Today, we work with other societies and the council to protect all that is best in our city – of any era – and promote excellence in new development.

The Melrose – History
The site of The Melrose Restaurant has an intergral role to play in the history and culture of Brighton and Hove and fascinatingly, the emergence of the film industry as we know it today. Not only has this family-owned restaurant been serving some of the finest seafood for over 40 years, but the site was once The Pandora Gallery – the first “Kinema”, as they were once known, to show films outside of London.
