Overview

Madeira Drive, formerly known as Madeira Terrace, was initially built as a promenade to protect the land of the East Cliff. Overlooking the beach, on the sea-side road of this drive is what can be Britain's first electric railway, Volks Electric Railway. This drive is an important location for many, as this serves as a finish line for a variety of races, including the annual London to Brighton Cycle Ride. Plenty of traditional sea-side entertainments can be found throughout the year, apart from regular races. One can expect to sight cars of veteran era, Lamborghini and motorcycles of all varieties. Operating only from Easter to mid-September, 9:45a to 7:15p daily, a lift connects the Madeira Drive to Madeira Parade. Seafront offers a variety of shops to purchase souvenirs like Brighton Rock
