Guided Tours of Embassy Court

Guided Tours of Embassy Court

Tour dates for 2015

As a private building, Embassy Court is normally closed to the public. Guided tours offer an opportunity to see inside the building and hear its story. Tours run at times from April to October, commonly during Brighton Festival Fringe and Heritage Open Days, and we also aim to run tours at times outside of those festivals, depending on volunteer availability. Dates for these tours will be advertised on this website and on the Embassy Court Facebook and Twitter feeds.

The Brighton Fringe site is live for this years festival, which means that tour tickets are now on sale! Tours are running the Saturdays and Sundays, all the info and link to the box office here.

Places on tours have to be booked in advance and cost £6 (£5 concs), through the third party box office or outside of these events, via the link below.

Private tours can also be arranged outside. Group sizes are a minimum of 6 and maximum of 20 but larger groups and special events can be accommodated with notice.

All queries regards booking and to book can be made here.

What do tours include?

  • Tour from the foyer to the sun roof terrace, visiting one of the flats,  taking in the stunning rear aspect of the building and ending with a look at some of the original plans and fixtures and the growing archive

All tours start at 11 am prompt and last approx. 90 minutes.
