Madeira Terrace in Historic Pictures

Brighton & Hove City Council is running a crowdfunding campaign to help save the distinctive Madeira Terrace on Brighton seafront.

Constructed in 1890, the terrace runs from Brighton Aquarium (now the Sea Life Centre) to Duke’s Mound. As a result of corrosion and the cast iron coming to the end of its useful life, funding is required for urgent repairs. Without this funding, the structure could become damaged beyond repair.

Details of the crowdfunding campaign can be found at: https://www.spacehive.com/madeira-terrace. Below is a gallery of images from our collections showing the Madeira Terrace in its prime.
