Volk’s Railway to reopen this Saturday
Brighton & Hove’s historic Volk’s Electric Railway will reopen this weekend.
The world’s oldest electric railway will begin carrying passengers along the beach from Saturday 25 July for the first time since it closed at the end of last season.
Work has been going on behind the scenes to ensure the safety of visitors and staff, including having to reduce the capacity of trains and opening hours.
What you need to know
- All passengers and staff will be required to wear a face covering, unless exempt
- In accordance with government guidance, customer contact details will be taken
- The railway will be operating a ‘turn up and ride’ system so no need to pre-book
- Unfortunately, the Halfway Station and the main visitor centre will not be open
- Toilet facilities at the Aquarium Station will remain closed
- Cash payments cannot be accepted at the moment
- Please take time to read more information before your visit on the Volk’s Electric Railway website
The council asks that everyone who plans on visiting the historic attraction follows and respects the instructions given by staff.
We’ve had change of plan. “Take the bull by the horns,” we thought. “We’re ready, so why wait?” So we’ve brought forward our reopening day to THIS SATURDAY, the 25th.— Volk's Electric Railway (@volksrailway) July 22, 2020
