The space

A beautiful converted chapel dating back to 1876, the Chapel Townhouse is hidden along a private and picture perfect Victorian mews, accessible through private electric entry gates. Guests enter their own front door to find the grandest of staircases winding around an 8ft chandelier made from 300 antique crystal wine glasses, up to the Chapel Townhouse's studio room with a 15ft high ceiling, original stained glass windows, super-king sized bed, roll top bathtub, a second Victorian inspired chandelier made from black Lego bricks and an abundance of hidden secrets that we'll leave for you to discover during your stay.

Guest access

The Chapel has a state of the art smart lock and when your booking is confirmed, you'll receive a personalised entry code which will work for the duration of your stay. You can then check in and out at a time that suits and come and go as you please.

Interaction with guests

You will have the Chapel Townhouse to yourselves. I live a short walk away if needed but will leave you to enjoy the privacy it affords for the duration of your stay. If you need any recommendations for restaurants or need anything arranging anything ahead of your trip, just let me know.

The neighbourhood

Despite being in the bustling heart of central Brighton, the Chapel Townhouse is so private and secluded, you'll feel a million miles away from the outside world.

Hidden along a private mews, just off Church Street in the heart of Brighton's cultural quarter, you will find the Chapel Townhouse directly opposite Brighton Dome and Corn Exchange and moments from Brighton's famous Pavilion Gardens estate and the Theatre Royal.

The Chapel Townhouse is also in the midst of the famous lanes and North Laine areas, packed with the best independent boutiques, restaurants and coffee shops. Brighton pier and seafront is half a mile away and we're walking distance from both Kemptown and Hove. You really couldn't wish for a better location.

Getting around

Although there is no guest parking at the Chapel Townhouse, or along our mews, the Brighton Theatre NCP car park is just a two minute walk along Church Street. For guest loading and unloading, we have a loading bay directly opposite the Chapel Townhouse on Church Street outside Brighton Dome. Brighton train station is half a mile away with trains to London Victoria / London Bridge (sometimes) taking as little as 50 minutes. Taxi's are also relatively affordable in Brighton and a few pounds will get you to most places in the city. Brighton is best explored on foot though and I recommend leaving the car at home if you can.

Other things to note

Pricing at the Chapel Townhouse is set daily according to seasonality and supply and demand and our nightly rates can vary considerably. If the price for your chosen dates is more than you would like to spend, you might find it more affordable on another day, particularly if you're able to stay midweek (Sunday to Thursday are always great value).

The Chapel definitely has a wow factor! It was exciting to find it behind a private gate off the Main Street. Loved the little touches and the bedroom with bath is impressive! Had an excellent stay, only problem was that it was quite noisy outside at night due to the many bars and pubs.
