The London and Brighton Railway first brought trains to Hove, a charming Sussex seaside town close to Brighton, in 1840. The station has been at its current location since 1865, and its original buildings are still standing - though they're no longer used by the station, which got another ticket hall in 1893. Today Hove station serves day-trippers to the seaside and commuters, with regular services to Brighton, London Victoria, Southampton, Portsmouth and Bristol. It's also the closest station for the Sussex County Cricket Ground. Hove seafront is about twenty minutes' walk south of the station, passing George Street, where you'll find a number of independent shops and restaurants, and Hove Museum and Art Gallery on New Church Road. When you arrive at the sea, look out for the Western Lawns and Hove Lawns gardens, watersports hotspot Hove Lagoon, and the promenade that leads along the beach to Brighton.
