“Victorian marvel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2012

After visiting Borde Hill Garden and getting a great view of the viaduct I drove down the road and was able to park close by and walk right up to it. An amazing feat of engineering and you can get some really great photos if you look down the arches!

“Unusual and interesting sight”

Take a walk to the viaduct and get right up close to look through the centre of the viaduct - it is a really awesome sight.

“11 million bricks and still standing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2012

Brighton was a fashionable Regency holiday resort. Following the invention of the steam locomotive there were many attempts to cost and establish a railway line from London to Brighton. As the Victorians' equally favoured the holiday town the London to Brighton Railway (L&BR) was incorporated, an Act was passed and the railway was constructed. The railway line navigated accross the Ouse Valley so a viaduct was constructed with eleven million bricks from Holland. The viaduct is still supporting the railway line today and you may see the distinctive end towers as you cross over the valley. The viaduct is well worth a view from grownd level and can be freely accessed by a public footpath.
