Trails 2018 – Beyond the Level

Starting in the early 1990s, Beyond the Level trail successfully evolved into one of the main Open House attractions, and in this 24th year numbers 13 houses, studios and a cafe. Beyond the Level showcases the work of an ever-growing community of practising artists and designers living and working in or around the vibrant, rejuvenated London Road area of Brighton. Situated north and west of The Level recreation space, and extending into the Roundhill conservation area, the trail offers visitors quality original arts and crafts, in informal and homely settings, at affordable prices.

Please note that while many houses and studios now have card payment facilities, some only accept cash or cheques. Where most venues are the artists’ own homes, we may be unable to offer specialist access for disabled visitors, but will endeavour to give appropriate assistance where required. Visitors are welcome to call houses and studios in advance to discuss specific requirements. Why not pay us a visit or join our Facebook group? Also on Twitter at
