Brighton Zoo

From The Brighton Toy and Model Index

Brighton Zoo seems to have been open from 1948 to 1952 (some sources differ, but all personal accounts and photos seem to come from this date range), on a site now occupied by Withdean Stadium.

Its miniature railway was moved to Hove Park to become the current Hove Park Railway.

Previous Brighton zoos ...

So far, we've also found references to:

  • Ireland's Royal Gardens, which used to be just north of the current The Level, briefly included a Menagerie.
  • Kisling's "Zoo and Aquarium History" (2000) lists a "New Brighton Zoo (Brighton, England) as having been in existence from 1900-1910

, and there might also have been some sort of zoo operating in Brighton (perhaps private?) in the 1920s. We'll update this page if we find more details.
