Welcome to our award winning tour!! Winner of ‘Guided Tour of the Year’ 2018/19 from Tourism South East. That’s right, come along and see for yourself why we won best guided tour of the year in the South East of England.
Your friendly and local driver/guide, will meet you at London Bridge Station before we take our train Brighton. Here there will be time to freshen up before heading out of the city and in to the South Downs. This ancient landscape is characterized by the rolling chalk hills, created over thousands of years by farmers grazing their animals. This ‘downland’ is a rich landscape for flora and provides some of the most beautiful and dramatic scenery in the South of England.
The first stop is the eerily named Devil’s Dyke, high up on the Downs with views of up to 30 miles across the lowland Weald. Stopping for about 20 minutes, your guide will explain how this landscape was created and also show you the unique ‘Devils Dyke’ the largest dry valley in the UK.
After Devils Dyke, heading further away from Brighton to Middle Farm, a traditional Sussex farm that has been in the same family for over 200 years. Today Middle Farm offers the largest selection of Sussex produce in its farm shop which includes a butcher, bakery, cheese counter and all sorts of other produce including English sparkling wine, cider and perry. There is also a cafe selling coffee (show your review card for a free coffee) if you want to grab a quick snack. The stop here will be 30 minutes allowing you enough time to have a good look around.
The tour continues to the Seven Sisters Country Park and the white cliffs, passing through old country lanes where you’ll see the mysterious and ancient, Longman of Wilmington, a huge Neolithic carving on the side of the Downs.
Arriving at Seven Sisters and the majestic white cliffs, your first stop will be Beachy Head. Your guide will walk you to the top of England’s highest chalk cliff measuring 530 ft. The cliffs along this stretch of the coast are vertical adding to the natural drama all around you.
The next stop is Seaford Head, where the iconic view of The Seven Sisters can been seen from Seaford Head. Walking the lane from the car park to the coastguard cottages, the full beauty and drama of the white cliffs will appear before you. Make sure you have your camera ready, as you’ll be here for 30 minutes, plenty of time for pictures.
Before returning to Brighton, one last stop in the village of Rottingdean, which was once home to Rudyard Kipling author of The Jungle Book. Here you can stroll through village green before taking the short hop back to the city centre, arriving back in Brighton at 5pm.
