Brighton Dome Tours

7 reviews
Brighton Dome
Made up of three unique performance spaces, the Brighton Dome is a pillar of the English south coast’s cultural heritage. First the stable block of a young George IV, then a World War I hospital, the 200-year-old venue is now known as a champion of Brighton’s creative scene.

The Basics
Admire the Grade I-listed building’s Indian-style facade on a city tour, exploring the streets by bike or foot for a comprehensive overview of Brighton’s architectural heritage. Alternatively, backstage tours allow up-close appreciation of the art deco Concert Hall, spacious Corn Exchange, or modern Studio Theatre, while the venue’s multiarts program offers a range of immersive shows—from puppetry to rock concerts, live dance to lectures. Book ahead to secure the best seats. 

Things to Know Before You Go
  • The Brighton Dome is a must-see for architecture enthusiasts, and the shows are a must-see for creatives and culture vultures.
  • Dome ticket holders can enjoy discounted meals at some nearby restaurants.
  • Brighton Dome is fully accessible to guests with disabilities and offers reduced-price tickets where available. Call ahead for details.

How to Get There
The Studio Theatre entrance can be found on New Road, while the Concert Hall and Corn Exchange are both accessible via Church Street. The complex is situated around 10 minutes’ walk from Brighton railway station. Brighton’s narrow streets aren’t built for heavy traffic, so it’s best to avoid driving midweek. Weekend or evening guests can benefit from discounted access to some nearby parking lots.

When to Get There
The annual Brighton Festival takes place across the city for three weeks every May, with Brighton Dome as its beating heart. The event often coincides with the Brighton Fringe and Great Escape festivals, during which time the city becomes a hive of creativity and culture (even more so than usual), with myriad shows, events, and workshops taking place every day.

When Waterloo Came to Brighton
Everyone knows that Abba famously swept the 1974 Eurovision Song Contest with their hit “Waterloo,” which went on to become one of the best-selling singles ever. Few know, however, that this historic moment took place at the Brighton Dome—and what’s more, the United Kingdom’s own entrant that year was one Olivia Newton-John, four years before she would hit the world stage playing Sandy in the iconic Grease.
