- One of the finest early Gothic Revival churches in the UK, built between 1824-1828 by Sir Charles Barry, who later designed the Houses of Parliament. Barry designed an ambitious tower to provide a termination to the north end of the Old Steine. The lower part of the tower has a buttressed screen with flying buttresses at the four corners, allowing for three high entrances. The interior is less impressive, but St Peter's nevertheless became the parish church of Brighton in 1873.
