The highest point of East Sussex, the Ditchling Beacon is host to many sporting events and adventure activities. Located just south of the village of Ditchling, this spot offers glorious views of the surroundings. It is great for hiking but the good news is that even vehicles go right to the very summit of the hill. The only access to the peak is via the Beacon road that connects to Brighton and many other villages. The area is home to a number of flora and fauna. There are vast expanses of green stretching for miles at length that give the whole place a surreal feel.
