Royal Crescent
Royal Crescent
Royal Crescent is a crescent-shaped terrace of houses on the seafront in Brighton. Built between 1797 - 1807 as a speculative development on cliffs east of Brighton by a wealthy merchant, the 14 lodging houses formed the town's eastern boundary until about 1820. The variety of building materials used include black glazed mathematical tiles—a characteristic feature of Brighton's 18th-century architecture. English Heritage has listed the crescent at Grade II* ( LinkExternal link ) for its architectural and historical importance. An adjacent five-storey building, formerly the Royal Crescent Hotel but now converted into flats with the name Royal Crescent Mansions, is listed separately at Grade II ( LinkExternal link ).
