Take the train to get to the Marina, it's easier than walking , enjoyable and fun and you won't need to park the car again.

Tickets are very reasonably priced, the trains run reliably every 10-15 minutes and they run right next to the beach from the pier to the Marina. Great fun and supporting a unique, local venture.

We parked up at the Black Rock Car park- one if the cheapest car parks in Brighton...and got the train into the marina. It runs every 15 mins and is very sweet and my son LOVED it! It takes about 12 mins and ideal for little ones ...or as a cheap way to go into Brighton!!!

For an opportunity to rest your feet try the electric railway.The Marina at the far end is a half mile walk so unless you are desperate to see, it just get off the train,have an icecream, & catch the next train back .They run every 15 mins.

If you go to Brighton you just have to have a trip on the Volks Railway. Quite a pleasant way to get from The Marina to the Pier!

A pleasant little ride along the sea front. Unfortunately, once you get off the train the area is really run down and unpleasant. It is worth walking through the horrible concrete jungle of a car park to the Marina, which is a pleasant place to enjoy food/ coffee. You will need a drink once you have negotiated your way to...
