Make the most of Brighton with Southern Railway
Despite its small size, Brighton has maintained its reputation as ‘London by the sea’ since the Victorian era by offering a variety of experiences usually restricted to major cities. It takes only a short train journey to get there from the capital and whether you go for a week or a day, it’s still easy to make the most of what Brighton has to offer.
Booking your train tickets online with Southern Railway allows you to take advantage of 2FOR1 offers on tickets to a wide range of things to do in Brighton.
Attractions don’t come more conveniently located than the Brighton Toy & Model Museum, hidden away in an underpass on the train station’s doorstep. Parents and children will be equally captivated by the Museum’s heady blend of nostalgia and excitement, with a treasure-trove collection boasting rare dolls, well-loved teddy bears, a legion of toy soldiers and even antique machines from penny arcades. With over 10,000 exhibits, visitors are presented with a rich history of these childhood delights that can entertain for an hour or even fill up a whole day.
If you want to fit plenty in and have children’s tastes to cater for, you may wish to opt for a unique twist on an old classic for lunch. The restaurant Maccheroni offers a wide variety of fast-food pasta dishes that’ll be ready in two minutes flat. Booking a Southern Railway train ticket will get you 2FOR1 on pasta boxes when ordering two drinks and desserts, meaning you can save both time and money on a quick and delicious meal for the whole family.
In Brighton, a quick shopping trip in the North Laine, the city’s vibrant bohemian centre, will be a perfect way to round off a day. Its proximity to the train station (about 5 minutes’ walk) means you can grab your souvenirs and still be in time to catch your train home!
Being economical with time and money will allow visitors to see as much of Brighton as possible. You could even set aside half a day and catch a Southern Railway train to nearby Newhaven and explore Paradise Park. These are no ordinary botanical gardens; they feature nature and history trails, exhibitions and a play park. Intrepid adventurers will be especially keen to go on the dinosaur safari, moving stealthily through the Jurassic plants and life-size dinos on the hunt for the terrifying T-Rex.
