Brighton Open Market

Putting Brighton’s Open Market on the (Google) Map!

A regularly overlooked and yet truly fantastic part of Brighton – for shopping, eating or just hanging out – is the long standing and recently rebuilt Open Market in the bohemian London Road district. Until now this eclectic selection of local businesses was only visible if you actually visited the market in person, as of this week you can take a virtual tour of the whole market using Google’s Street View.

Working with the new and dynamic management team at the market, who have an eye for a good marketing opportunity and understanding of how people now like to use the internet and truly explore an area before they decide to take a trip there. White Rabbit has created a virtual tour of the entire market, encompassing both the London Road and The Level entrances, the main market traders area, the upstairs studios and a few of the individual business units within.

See below to take a trip inside Brighton’s Open Market from either end:

As a Google Street View Trusted Pro, White Rabbit has been offering local companies the opportunity to have a 360 degree photo of their business interior added to Google Street View.

Other venues in Brighton & Hove that have been part of this project and now have their very own Google Street View photo or virtual tour are Yellowave Beach Sports Venue, Amici Pizzeria & Bar, The Warren, The Cheese Hut, Hove Plinth, Art of Treason, The Flying Saucer and Veeno Wine Café to name a few.

It was an early start, to catch the market before it filled with punters and see most of the market traders setting up their stalls with interesting and enticing wares. Blessed with a sunny day made the whole experience a delight to be a part of.

Best wishes and good luck to the new management team at Brighton Open Market!
