Tucked away in Brighton and Hove is the old village of Portslade and it is well worth a visit and a focus of your visit could be (before you go to any of the pubs) a little walk through the history of Portslade. They have two Portslade History Trails – one for adults and one for children. It’s a multi-media experience and you can find out all about it here.
They say that the Portslade adult history trail was created and realised by a volunteer group of Portslade residents. The idea of the trail is to offer a brief introduction into the fascinating 1000 year history of Portslade Old Village. The trail focus on the Old Village conservation area and has a useful video on YouTube. (Don’t forget that you can easily get to Portslade village on the bus from central Brighton and Hove.)
