Most children are thrilled to travel around on different modes of transport. Fortunately, there are opportunities for kids and their families to enjoy Brighton, its coastline and the Sussex countryside by travelling in either a steam train, an electric train, an open top bus, a pleasure boat, a Brighton tuktuk and even a plane.
This is a very popular attraction for families living in and visiting Sussex. Children love riding in a real steam train through the countryside. Look out for the family fun weekends and special activities for kids in the summer holidays, plus the Santa Specials at Christmas.
