To The Old Ship Assembly Rooms

The Assembly Rooms were connected with the Old Ship Hotel, the oldest hotel in Brighton. The building was purchased in 1671 by Nicholas Tettersell, who owned the boat Charles II used to get to France.

The assembly rooms were built in 1767 and were a ballroom as well as card and tea rooms.
