Daughter is an A Level photography student so we saw this online and decided to make a visit. This is a superb place for taking photos - the Victoria Viaduct is amazing and still has the main London to Brighton line (including the Bluebell Railway)...More

Stopped off here and made the short walk to the arches. The architecture is astounding with a tunnel effect when looking through the arches from one to the other. You can clamber on them as well and feel the train as it goes across way...More

A must visit if your in the area, take a walk around and then on it and take some time out from the noise and bustle of nearby Brighton. Easy to get to in a car, not sure how accessible via public transport.

You can park the car on the road close by and walk across the field to it. There is also a public footpath beyond it with wonderful Sussexcountry views

There is no denying that this is an amazing piece of architecture. The history of the recent renovation work is also interesting (including the local authority awarding it 'listed building' status and therefore slowing down the whole process, but safeguarding its future). Fairly mellow surroundings...More

Visit :Anytime catching a train during daylight hours Pros: Amazing views of Sussex(Weald) countryside. Cons: The only way to see it is on a London-Southcoast mainline train, sounds easy ? not when the trainline is run by Southern/Thameslink :-(

Not easy... you would really need a taxi out there. It is actually closer to Balcombe station, and if you are keen walkers you could work out a good route from there that took in the viaduct.

I think not. The land is not public, although there is a footpath across it. And a fire at the bridge itself would be regarded as a serious offence.
