A superb exhibition that's on until October 2017. I hadn't appreciated John Constable sketched and painted around 150 works in Brighton? The best are on display in a stunningly curated exhibition, which includes the walking routes Constable took from Brighton to sketch and paint. What's...More

It's a lovely little museum where I like to pop down and visit time to time. There are always new art exhibitions on which are usually free/cheap for residents. We need more art galleries in Brighton
