The London to Brighton Line was opened in 1841 by the London & Brighton Railway, providing a service between London Bridge Station and the fashionable South Coast. Although the railway started carrying day trippers, the rapid expansion of the suburbs south of London during the nineteenth century meant that the line (absorbed into the London, Brighton & South Coast Railway) was soon running plentiful commuter services as well. Extending to Victoria Station in 1860, the London to Brighton Line was the first UK main line to be electrified, opening throughout in 1933. On its way, the line ran through the beautiful Sussex countryside and The London to Brighton Line Through Time will take the reader on a tour through that countryside, along the bridges and viaducts built for the railway, showing through a collection of old and modern photographs how the route has changed.
