Fancy a trip down memory lane in the heart of Bognor Regis?

Bognor’s links with the house of Windsor and an infamous house of ill-repute are celebrated at the town’s new museum.

Displays highlight royal connections and the story of the House of Cyn, a brothel run by notorious Bognor-born madam Cynthia Payne.

The information has been placed together for the first time as the look into the town’s past comes to life again.

Check out our exclusive chat with Greg Burt, chairman of the Bognor Regis Local History Society, at the museum’s opening on Saturday.

For the full story on what’s in store at the museum, which is now open until October, this summer, see the Bognor Regis Observer, out on Thursday, March 28.
