Before I start the blurb, this is pretty cool as it's directly under the Victorian Brighton railway station - quietly hidden away and so few people know about it. Kids and adults (...ok men..) love it. Do check it out

"BRIGHTON TOY AND MODEL MUSEUM IS A TREASURE TROVE OF TOYS AND MODELS.

Step into a world of toys and models that extends over four thousand square feet of floorspace, under four of the early Victorian arches which support Brighton Railway Station. Founded in 1991, the Museum has over ten thousand toys and models in its archive. We have toys from as early as the mid 18th century, however, most of our exhibits focus on the golden age of toy making during the first half of the Twentieth Century. The displays have toys of all types including priceless model train collections and many period, antique toys from Great Britain and all over Europe and the U.S."

Unfortunately not open tomorrow (Monday) but check it out if you're travelling, or a local.

It's lovely that they have restored this place.
I remember it from when I lived in Brighton in the 90's.
It's quite lovely.
