Brighton Grand Hotel - this was the scene of the Brighton bombing on 12 October 1984. The IRA were attempting to assassinate Maggie Thatcher and her Tory government who were staying  at the Grand during the Conservative Party conference. I worked in an office not far away (BT SEHQ in Churchill Square) but didn't hear the bomb go off  because It occurred in the early hours of the morning.
