The seventh busiest railway station in the UK outside of London, Brighton East Sussex station welcomes around 16 million people every year and serves locations including Bristol Temple Meads, Cardiff Central and Great Malvern.

It was originally built in 1840 by The London and Brighton Railway as a passenger and goods station with a locomotive depot and railway works.

In 1973 Brighton East Sussex station became a Grade II listed site, one of 1,218 in the city of Brighton and Hove. But, there are plenty of other reasons you might find yourself visiting the station, as not only is it just a 10-minute walk away from the fabulous shops and restaurants of The Brighton Lanes, it’s also close to the famous Brighton Pier and its long sandy beaches.
