Fodor's Expert Review Volk's Electric Railway

Brighton Transportation Site (Airport, Bus, Ferry, Train)

Built by Brighton inventor Magnus Volk in 1883, this was the first electric railway anywhere in the world—and it's recently been spruced-up in an extensive, £2 million restoration project. Between April and October, you can take the 1¼-mile, three-station trip along the beachfront Marine Parade.
