Jane Austen by the Sea: 17 June 2017 - 8 January 2018. A new display at the Royal Pavilion in Brighton will explore Jane Austen’s relationship with coastal towns, and life in Brighton during her time, to mark the bicentenary of her death. Jane Austen by the Sea will look at the seaside context of Austen’s plots and paint a picture of the leading resort of Brighton in the early 1800s, when it was a fashionable ‘watering place’ featured in novels like Pride and Prejudice.

Jane Austen by the Sea will form part of our Regency Season in 2017, which will also include the exhibition Constable and Brighton, and the display Visions of the Royal Pavilion Estate (both at Brighton Museum & Art Gallery).

Visions of the Royal Pavilion Estate: A new display of rarely-seen views of the Royal Pavilion Estate dating back to the 1760s, as well as cutting-edge digital reconstructions of how it might have looked. Illustrations from the earliest printed books about the estate will sit beside unrealised designs, early municipal maps and 20th century plans and images. Opens 14 March at Brighton Museum.

Coming Soon. Constable and Brighton. A new exhibition at Brighton Museum & Art Gallery will explore John Constable’s time in the fashionable seaside resort, where he stayed with his family between 1824 and 1828. See over 60 of the artist’s sketches, drawings and paintings from his time in Brighton for the first time, in the place where they were created.

Constable and Brighton will form part of the Royal Pavilion & Museums’ Regency Season in 2017, which will also include Jane Austen by the Sea at the Royal Pavilion and Visions of the Royal Pavilion Estate at Brighton Museum.

Think driverless cars are exciting? Pah. Back in 1926 our director took the wheel of a trackless train in the Royal Pavilion garden.
