Take a ride on a Victorian electric railway
Brighton & Hove, East Sussex
Hop on board and enjoy a ride on England's oldest electric railway.
Built in 1883, this narrow-gauge railway (named after its eccentric designer, Magnus Volk), spans just over a mile along Brighton's seafront from the Aquarium to Black Rock.
With the sea on one side and Brighton's promenade on the other, you'll journey on a semi-open carriage past Paston Place to Black Rock, where you can take a wander along the Undercliff Walk along the sea wall, or hop on a bus to the nearby village of Rottingdean. This picturesque village was once the home of Rudyard Kipling, and was also very popular with smugglers. Rottingdean's beach is also a great spot for searching for crabs and anemones so don't forget your bucket!
