Brighton Dome as Hospital Ward
Local newspapers provide valuable accounts of historical events, criminal trials, inquests, elections as well as announcements of births, deaths and marriages. Brighton History Centre holds a range of weekly and daily newspapers for Brighton and the former county of Sussex, from 1749 to the present. Please contact us if you are planning to use our newspaper collection. Most copies are only available on microfilm, so it is advisable to contact the History Centre and book a reader before your visit.
