On a beautiful summer's day, Car No. 9 approaches crossing 4a on its way to Black Rock Station.


We’re right on the beach. No need to book – just turn up and ride!

Cars 6 & 10 rounding the last of the 'Yellowave curves' on a summer's day Eastbound service to Black Rock Station.

Welcome to the Volk’s Electric Railway, a fascinating piece of living history on Brighton’s beautiful seafront. As the oldest working electric railway in the world, we’re proud to have been transporting passengers in style since 1883.

Boarding our perfectly preserved cars you’ll be transported back to the Victorian era of innovation and ingenuity. You’ll then travel our mile-long beachfront line, bathing in the sights and sounds of our scenic coastline. What better way to experience the enduring spirit of the British seaside holiday?

As a true one-off, we’re dedicated to remaining an integral part of the nation’s seaside heritage for generations to come.
