Brighton Dome exterior

5-in-one venue suits every event, reports Briony Key

Brighton Dome is an iconic complex of venues that deserves to be on the shortlist for a very wide variety of events. Its remarkable architecture, its cultural history and its continuous updating mean that, like me, everyone should re-visit the Dome.

Roger St. Pierre visits a unique property on the Kent coast

A renaissance of Britain’s seaside is taking place. Corporate planners are looking anew at resorts that are at long last getting their acts back together. Take the Kentish town of Margate, for example. The turn-round of the past half-decade has been phenomenal.
