Get the New Year off to a racing start - take a bracing stroll round the racecourse and discover its long and varied history - The Prince Regent made it famous , and fortunes were won and lost on its grassy slopes . Hear tales of riots between police and soldiers during the Napoleonic Wars , the infamous "razor gangs" that terrorised the races in the 1920's and inspired Graham Greene to write " Brighton Rock " and enjoy some of the finest views of the city ( take that , i360 ! ) .
Modern Hove has a much more genteel reputation than its noisy big brother , but its long history has been anything but quiet .

Join me on a walk around Hove and discover - Ancient burial mounds in Palmeira Avenue The mysterious Goldstone , relic of the Druids Bull fighting in the town and the one that got away ! Beach battles with the smugglers Hermits in the cave at St Ann's Well How Hove became the " Hollywood" of early film production All my tours are only £5 per person and children go free - Look forward to seeing you there Nick
