Free Murder, Malice and Mystery Tour

Meet: Outside Brighton Station Main Entrance Gates (opposite Budgens)

Price: Free (tips based) 

Time: Fri 7pm-8:30pm 

Language: English  

Not suitable for children under 15 or people of a squeamish nature, the FREE murder tour dares you to investigate an age when Brighton was known as the ‘Queen of Slaughtering places.’ Can you follow the killer’s trail when the body no longer exists? Would a woman confess to a murder she never committed? Could a calculated poisoning spree be the act of an insane person?  

 

Learn why you should visit an execution, how to avoid being sentenced to death and why it's not just calories that make chocolates bad for you. The first murderer to have a 'wanted' portrait in the paper, the best evidence removal in British history and the worst attack on the government in 400 years. You would be very wise to investigate. 

Things to most watch out for: 

  • The Brighton trunk murders 

  • The chocolate cream killer 

  • The 'vampire' murderer 

  • The Brighton bombing 

  • Your tour guide!
