Trains to Pulborough glide through the Sussex countryside, through the flood plain of the River Arun and the South Downs, before coming to rest in the western end of this charming little village. Rail arrived here in 1859, but the line operated in isolation until it was linked to the Brighton to Portsmouth line in 1870. The station building remains largely untouched, with a wide canopy on the island platform - a hallmark of Victorian railway architecture. Pulborough lies at the confluence of two rivers on the northern boundary of the South Downs National Park, so it's a great area for keen walkers. Highlights include Pulborough Brooks, a nature reserve in the wet meadows of the Arun Valley, and the charming Elizabethan Parham House and Gardens for cream teas. Both are a short bus ride from the station. For something completely out of the ordinary, don't miss the annual 12-Hour Lawnmower Race held every July. (Yes, it's real.)
