Time-lapse: London to Brighton in 2 minutes

by Trevor May | 25th November 2006 | Brighton Travel | Comment on this

I did this commute from Brighton to London (and back again) by train every single day for around eight years. If I’d had a front row seat like this I’d have probably enjoyed it a bit more. Well, that and if it *actually* took 2 minutes instead of an hour and a half. They really could have cleaned that windscreen though!

Back in the 80’s there was a programme on the BBC with time-lapse footage of the trip in 3 1/2 minutes — and it’s also on YouTube, complete with awesome futuristic 80’s soundtrack!

Update: I love YouTube! There’s even the original 1950’s 4 minute timelapse footage on there as well. Enjoy!
