Today we followed the ‘Brighton’s Back Passages’ walk (p.46) from the above by David Bramwell, John Ashton, and Tim Bick.
Starting at Morrison’s supermarket in Kemp Town, the first back passage was a tunnel- shaped covered alley.
A few passages later we hit Quadrophenia Alley ‘where Jimmy and Steph get it on…’ and apparently ‘Fans have been known to re-enact the love scene here’.
The next Alley off Little East Street had ‘ambient music installed in an attempt to calm passing drunk vandals… and has been decorated by legendary Japanese street artist Lady Aiko.’
Many more alleys followed.
Items of interest included:
The Brighton’s Back Passages walk finished at the lovely Brighton Pavilion.
We started the walk off with coffee and cake at The Flour Pot Bakery.
And finished with a chilled Sauvignon Blanc at the Theatre Royal.
The walk was brilliant. Cheeky Walks spot on and very easy to follow. We didn’t loose our way at all. A first for us…!
