Brill’s Baths

Photograph of Brill’s Baths, shortly before its demolition in January 1929.

The baths were originally opened in 1823 by a Mr Lamprell and nicknamed ‘the bunion’. It was the first communal swimming baths in Brighton.

After Lamprell’s death in the 1840s, the baths were inherited by his nephew, Charles Burt Brill. Brill closed the original baths in 1858 and opened a new lady’s only bath in 1861. Seven years later it was extended with the addition of swimming baths for men.
