Expert review of Volks Electric Railway
This is an electric railway, so Thomas the Tank Engine fans hoping for a little hooting, puffing and chuffing will be disappointed. But it’s not just any old electric railway -it’s the oldest narrow gauge electric railway in Britain, dating back to 1883.
A mile and a quarter in length, the line runs along Kemptown beach and has three stops: Aquarium (near Brighton Pier), Halfway (downhill from Paston Place) and Black Rock (near Brighton Marina). In summer, a train leaves each end every 15 minutes. Transport nuts of all ages adore it.
An adult single ticket costs £1.80, and return £2.80.
