Brighton Mystery Adventure: Who Smashed Brighton Rock?

Mystery Guides

Select Option


Turn the historic streets of Brighton into an exciting outdoor escape room, with The Mystery of Who Smashed Brighton Rock!

A rock 'n' roll riot, a smashed sweet shop, and a secret undercover reporter create the perfect ingredients for a thrilling Brighton adventure!

As the legend goes, in May 1967, when Brighton's first major international rock festival was cancelled at the last minute, it sparked widespread rioting across the city. One location that was particularly badly hit was the iconic seafront sweetshop 'Brighton Rock', which was owned by the incredibly unpopular local MP Roger Whitby. Was the damage to his shop simply a random act of violence? Or had Whitby been the victim of a targeted attack against him?

With your interactive mystery guide, you must track down the clues, solve a range of cryptic puzzles hidden in Brighton's lanes, and finally uncover the lost newspaper article that reveals the identity of the legendary vandal!
