Great and amazing history. Every one will enjoy a ride to the Brighton Marina from the Pier. The price is very affordable too.

“A lot of fuss about nothing!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2012

This rusty old railway runs along the Brighton seafront for less than a mile, passing all the Burger bars and Bling shops along the the way. If stops near to the marina, then goes back again. I guess that some kids might enjoy it, but seems like a waste of money to me!
