Tour description

Join a born and bred Brightonian with 480 of Brighton ancestry on a tour where a percentage of tips even goes to a local homeless charity.

The Free Murder Tour challenges you to investigate a time when Brighton was known as the 'Queen of Killing Places '. Can you follow the trail of the murderer when the body no longer exists? Would a woman confess to a murder she never committed? Could a calculated poison wave be the act of a mad person? Learn why you should visit an execution, how to avoid being sentenced to death, and why it's not just the calories that make chocolates bad for you. The first murderer to have a 'wanted' portrait in the newspaper , the best evidence removal in British history and the worst attack on the government in 400 years. It would be very wise to investigate.

Things to keep in mind:

  • The Brighton trunk murders
  • The chocolate cream killer
  • The 'vampire' killer
  • The bombing of Brighton

Our guide was well informed. sometimes it was difficult to hear him due to it being extremely busy and noisy. It was difficult to locate him so need to improve on this. We would have liked to see our guide dressed according to the history he was delivering but overall very enjoyable
