Brighton Fishing Quarter
Brighton Fishing Quarter, the area surrounding the Fishing Museum, is the heart of Brighton’s seafront. Occupied by Brighton fishermen, local artists, photographers and independent traders, the area has a rich heritage and character unlike anywhere else.
Find out more about the many shops and attractions we have to offer by selecting an item from the panel on the right of this page. From locally caught fresh fish to buy, our own traditional smoke house, to work by local artists and photographers - there’s plenty to see and do.
You’ll also find plenty of entertainment going on in the Quarter all year round - from Morris Men, modern dance displays to the Salvation Army. The Quarter also plays host to the Annual Mackerel Fair and "The Blessing Of The Nets" - held in May every year - definitely an event not to be missed.
We're just a few minutes’ walk westward along the seafront from Brighton Pier. You won’t miss us by the traditional clinker built boats dotted around the pathway which have all been lovingly restored by our own Fishing Quarter workshop.
Enjoy your time here, have a browse and why not stop to say hello to one of the many friendly faces around here and discover a lively community working here in the heart of Brighton seafront.
