Steam engine enthusiasts will have a rare opportunity to visit a famous engineerium at a charity open day.

The Engineerium, in Nevill Road, Hove, is currently closed for a major renovation project which will see the Victorian pump house turned into a tourist attraction.

However, the owners will are fire up the Number 2 Beam engine for the Victorian themed public open day tomorrow, from 11am to 5pm.

Other traction engines will be on display while food will be on offer from local restaurant Riddle & Finns.

Robert Marks, who is well-known for his guided ghost walks around The Lanes, Brighton, will be giving Victorian themed tours of the engineerium.

Entry to the steam day will cost £2 per person with all proceeds going to the Chestnut Tree House Children's Hospice in Poling, near Arundel.
