Whether your taste is for old school tourism at the grand Royal Pavilion or quirky shopping in the North Laine market area, Brighton can cater for all of it. And if you fancy a trip just out of town, genteel Hove will serve up perfect cappuccino and cake by the trayful.
Brighton’s compact (and now Grade II listed) 1840 station, originally built for the London and Brighton Railway, is rich in period detail. Look up and you’ll see the large double-spanned curved glass and iron roof covering the platforms, built in 1882 and restored to its original glory over a century later. The spectacular London Road Viaduct is well worth a visit in its own right. Built for the Brighton to Lewes section of the East Coastway line in 1846, its 27 arches are still in use today.
