Marine Hotel

The Marine Hotel on the corner of Park and New Street, Brighton was Gordon's favoured watering hole during his time while residing at Brighton.

"Adam Lindsay Gordon
Poet and Horseman
Tethered his horse to this hitching post
During his residence in Brighton 1869 - 1870
A shining soul with syllables of fire
who sang the first great songs
these lands can claim (Kendall)
Preserved and dedicated to his memory by
The United Licensed Victuallers Association
20th October 1945"
