The oldest surviving electric railway in the world. Wonderful piece of living history still performing its intended function. Staff are incredibly welcoming and informative, and clearly very proud of their little railway Loved it

We got a return ticket to the marina and back to to the aquarium. Our dog Buddy enjoyed the ride and rest after a long walk and swim in the sea. The staff were kind and welcoming. And if you're visiting Brighton I recommend taking a ride on the Volks Electric Railway.

Another piece of history to be treasured. Hard to believe this little tramway is so old. I had visited Brighton many times as a child but never ridden on it. So glad we did. Friendly staff and a lovely experience on a sunny day. Quite what the idiots who gave it a terrible rating had in their minds I can't imagine.

A lovely ride along the Brighton sea front, driver was very friendly and tooted his unusual sounding horn copiously for the children on board. The open carriages had plastic curtains to protect us from the showers so that was nice. Unfortunately the small visitor centre, museum was not open when we visited.
