These amazing tours happen in May as part of the Brighton Fringe Festival. It is a great chance to learn about the hidden places, local history, and wonderful engineering of Brighton’s grade II* railway station. The tour gives you the opportunity on the station site, to see how it has grown and developed over the years. I started conducting these tours in 2001, after 28 million pounds had been spent on restoring the magnificent glass and cast iron roof at the end of the last century. Brighton Station is important in railway history, as an early seaside resort and the head office of ‘The London to Brighton Railway Company’, when it had first opened.
Note that all off the tour is on the move with a lot of walking, standing, stairs and uneven surfaces, also there are no seats on our route. Meet at least ten minutes before the tour at the front of Brighton Station. The station tours take place with the help and permission of Southern Railway.
