Enjoy a warm welcome to Brighton's ancient mother church and hear and see some of the 1000-year history, treasures and characters of this beautiful building. Highlights include the very rare Norman font, the magnificent windows by Kempe, and the Wellington memorial. Also, some of the stories of St Nicks, among them: why one particular vicar was expelled from the church; the sculptor’s beautiful tribute to his late wife; and 'the three fears' of the fishermen of the old town who worshipped at the church over the centuries.

Some comments from previous tours: “Fascinating, a place so rich in history”
“Brian Ogilvie is a knowledgeable and entertaining speaker”
“Really interesting, so much detail – wish I could remember it all!”

Income from the tours helps with continued and essential upkeep and restoration work. Sorry, no dogs permitted except guide dogs.

Numbers limited to a maximum of 40 and tickets usually sell out quickly. Duration 90 minutes. Early booking is recommended.

The 12.15pm tours can be combined with the 'Clifton and Montpelier' tour, which leaves St Nicholas at 2pm.
