20 great things to do in Brighton

Don't get locked up

Underneath the Town Hall, the Old Police Cells Museum (Town Hall, Bartholomew Square, BN1 1JA, 01273 291052, http://www.oldpolicecellsmuseum.org.uk/) charts the history of policing in Brighton. You can peek into the bleak cells, see the room in which the Chief Constable was murdered in 1844 (a suspect he was questioning seized a poker from the fireside and bludgeoned him to death), and learn about some of the mods and rockers who were briefly incarcerated here after violence on the beaches.
