I love a nosey behind closed doors and I was interested to take a tour around Embassy Court on Saturday. It’s a fascinating and beautiful building from the 1930s. More Miami Beach than West Pier, and certainly a Brighton icon.
Tales of Embassy Court’s heydey before the war, replete with a martini bar and lifts reserved for servants, did make me wonder. The cost of keeping these flats was extraordinary. It was all about exclusive luxury. I can’t imagine it was as respectable as our lovely tour guide suggested. I’m sure it was a hotbed of adultery, kept women, well respected men in the closet and enviable, disreputable, high jinks. I must know more!
I took a few snaps on my iPhone. The views from the top are wondeful, but I’m not sure my pics do the vista justice. So go and see for yourself.
