Information is being released about some of the guests who will be attending the Coronation of King Charles III and Queen Camilla.

Among the latest list of those whose attendance has been confirmed are: Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary of Denmark; The King of Sweden, Carl XVI Gustaf, along with the heir to the Swedish throne, Crown Princess Victoria; Crown Prince Fumihito and Crown Princess Kiko of Japan; and Prince Albert II of Monaco accompanied by his wife, Princess Charlene.

Our latest Community Rail Coronation Connection is looking at the Sussex Downs Line running from Brighton to Seaford.

Brighton’s royal connections include the beautiful but outrageous Royal Pavilion which was built by the extravagant King George IV as a seaside pleasure palace. The historic house mixes Regency grandeur with the visual style of India and China.

Rail is one of the greenest forms of travel and taking the train from central London to Brighton station on our Sussex Downs Line is 75% less polluting than driving a car on the same journey.

Please check with the venue for opening times and directions from the railway station.
