Know More about this tour

Your friendly and local driver/guide, will make various pick ups throughout Eastbourne and Brighton, including the train station 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 Devil's Dyke we make our way to the picturesque village of Rottingdean, with its village green, duck pond and ancient church, we will also find out about its most famous resident, Rudyard Kipling, aouthor of 'The Jungle Books'.
We then head 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 if you want to grab a quick snack. The stop here will be 40 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 youll 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 Seaford Head, where the iconic view of The Seven Sisters can been seen.  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 enjoy the 40 minute circular walk enjoying the vistas along the South coast.
