“What do you expect, it's 120 years old.”
Reviewed April 2, 2012

We went on the railway for old times sake (I haven't been on it since I was a child) and it's a bit clunky and the half way point only really has a kids play area and you still have a good 10 minute walk to reach the marina when you arrive at the marina stop BUT you have to remember how old this is and what a revolution it must have been at the time.

I loved it,

“Gorgeous Little train ride”
Reviewed March 28, 2012

A beautiful journey for all ages, journey along from Brighton Pier right to Brighton Marina. Stops halfway at a fabulous outside water park, pitch and putt and a cafe, brilliant for the kids.

“Be a child again”
Reviewed March 7, 2012

Great fun trip along the sea front down to the marina area - bit of a long walk so the train makes it easier on the legs
