The Volks Electric Railway is the first public and oldest operating electric railway in the world. Inventor, Magnus Volk the son of a German clockmaker, presented his latest creation and opened the railway to the public on 4 August 1883.

The Volk’s Electric Railway Association (VERA) was launched on September 16th 1995 and its dedicated volunteers work to maintain the great condition of this narrow gauge railway.

The trains run every 15 minutes between the Marina and the Aquarium station close to Brighton Pier.
