I'm pondering a bit of tourism next weekend, can anyone recommend anywhere that's within two hours (rail) travel from Brighton and doesn't involve much non-Southern/Thameslink/Southeastern/Great Northern travel, please?

I went to Parke parkrun a lovely national trust property with a run along an old railway line as part of course. Making it the 3rd one I have done although I had a bit of trip and went arse over tit it's not the faint hearted with a nasty slippery hill straight off the bat. But enjoyable nevertheless with this I also am now in the top 80 of the parkrun world team only 5 parkruns behind the founder
