Just under the bridge from Brighton Station stands one of the city’s unmissable landmarks. The ‘dead rock star graffiti wall’ that covers one side of pub / live music venue, The Prince Albert, was reworked last year to include recently deceased legends such as David Bowie and Prince. Created by local artist, Req, it features the faces of a number of musical icons – the challenge is to name them all!
The same wall was also the original site of one of street artist, Banky’s, most important works – ‘Kissing Coppers’ – which depicts two uniformed male police officers locked in a passionate embrace. There is still a version on the wall but it’s a Perspex-covered copy, the original having been sold at auction for $575,000 back in 2014.
The Prince Albert is another of Brighton & Hove’s rare free houses and, according to its website, is proud to offer ‘unusual beer to unusual people’. There’s always a great beer range on offer, including a wonderful selection from local Sussex legends, Burning Sky.
