Ouse Valley Viaduct

Ouse Valley Viaduct Ardingly

Located between Haywards Heath and Balcombe, Ouse Valley Viaduct offers quite the dramatic view. A structural marvel, the viaduct was originally built in 1838 to carry the London-Brighton line over the River Ouse.

It has been estimated that around 11 million bricks were used in construction. Once a treat known only to locals, it is now an Instagram hotspot! Visit early or later for a quieter experience and bring your camera!

Getting there:
Get the train from London Victoria to Balcombe Station, where it is around a 3.5km (2 mile) walk to the viaduct.

Make a day of it with the Ardingly Amble. Start at Haywards Heath Station and enjoy a beautiful 13km (8 mile) walk to Balcombe Station, taking in the sights of Ardingly Reservoir and the Ouse Valley Viaduct.

If you are driving please park at the Ardingly Reservoir Car Park. It is around a 1km walk to the viaduct.
