  • This museum has been open for many years and I had never got around to visiting it. It was well worth rectifying this and I no doubt will visit again when I have friends visiting Brighton. It is defin...  more »

  • My word, it's like stepping back in time to my childhood. Popped in in honour of my late father who was a well known toy collector up north. Absolutely eclectic and first class array of locomotives and models of differing scales and sizes. I adored the variety of detailed and well executed model railway sets. The steiff collection was a joy to behold as I love stiff and battered old Ted's, they are so characterful. Puppets and dolls tell their own faded stories along with all manner of other delights. Rediscover your inner child at this cute gem......
  • A small museum but packed with trains cars planes and various toys brings back childhood memories
  • nice museum, even better for families I guess, but £6.50 per person is really too much for what you find here
  • Very helpful, got the ramp out for my sons wheelchair
  • Under the arch by Brighton Station this is a great idea with wonderful exhibits. Quite small and a little expensive but if you like toys, especially trains, then this is the place for you. Excellent wheelchair access. Tourist information point. Friendly staff.

Where to stay in Brighton

During the height of the tourist season and on most weekends Brighton is a very congested city, where driving is difficult and parking is limited in the central areas most frequented by tourists. Avoid getting stressed out by staying at a self-catering apartment or a private B&B farther away from this part of town. Brighton's famous nightlife may be a bit far from there, but you can still enjoy seafront walks, good restaurants, and excellent shopping. Private seafront lodgings allow you to enjoy your stay quietly in comfort, while remaining within walking distance of Brighton's best beaches.
