Guided tours icon Wheelchair access icon

Earthship Brighton was the Low Carbon Trust's first project and was the first Earthship to be built in England.

Earthships are cutting edge 'green' buildings, constructed using waste car tyres and other recycled materials. They use the planets natural systems to provide all utilities - using the sun's energy and rain to provide heat, power and water. They are buildings that heat and cool themselves, harvest their own water and use plants to treat their sewage.

This pioneering demonstration project enables people to come and experience a cutting edge eco-build and be inspired to respond to climate change in their own ways back at home and work. The Low Carbon Trust offers regular guided tours and environmental education days for schools - please see our website for more details.
