Volk’s Electric Railway runs alongside the beach from the Visitor Centre to Black Rock Station, with a further station halfway.

The Visitor Centre is located in Aquarium Station, south of Sea Life Brighton on Madeira Drive and approximately 300 metres east of Brighton Palace Pier. Black Rock Station is 5 minutes walk from the shops, cafes, restaurants and attractions of Brighton Marina. The train Workshop is located near Halfway Station, next to Peter Pan’s playground.  Tickets can be purchased at any of the three stations.
