A historic building which inspired the hit board game Cluedo could receive a new heritage plaque and information board.

Tudor Close in Dean Martin Road, Rottingdean is believed to be the house which inspired the murder mystery game. 

It hosted the Queen Mother and a host of 1930s Hollywood stars in its time as a hotel.

Now the mock-Tudor building could receive a new information board to highlight its storied history.

Planning documents for the sign show the information board which refers to the building’s history.

Tudor Close, originally known as Tudor Cottages, was developed by Charles Neville.

In the 1930s the building was converted into the Tudor Close Hotel and hosted Hollywood stars including Cary Grant, Errol Flynn and Bette Davis.

The Queen Mother visited the Grade II listed site during the Second World War in her role as Colonel in Chief of the Royal Scottish Regiment.

When Waddington’s originally marketed the Cluedo game in 1949 it was initially called Murder At Tudor Close.

The game, now produced by Hasbro, is celebrating its 75th anniversary this year.

Brighton and Hove City Councillor Jacob Allen, deputy chairman of the planning committee, said he supported the proposals, calling the plans “accessible and attractive”.

A consultation about the signage is under way and is due to end on February 21.
