Breathtaking views,if you like walking then I highly recommend walking down the Dyke. .. Take a lunch and plenty of drinks cos once at the bottom it is sure long way back up... We had a picnic half way and I could have sat there all day,peaceful and quiet and stunning views. All this can be enjoyed for a £2... More

The South Downs Way is a key geographical feature of the coastal area between Winchester and Lewes - walk it in sections, or take side routes into the many lovely villages. Devil's Dyke is so easy to reach from Brighton or Lewes - and a good tip is to take the bus because parking can be difficult. The South Downs... More

Just go for the view, it's worth it on a sunny day of course. Don't be put off by the fact that the national trust seem to have taken over every car park on the south downs and are making folks pay for our own countryside... That my rant over! The pub is a chain type pub, it's ashame that... More

Took bus 77 from Brighton straight to Devil's Dyke although the driver told us it's so foggy that the max. visibility is 20-25m. We were hiking for an hour and luckily it was windy enough to clear up the fog so we saw a piece of the whole view which was amazing. Will definitely return in the future and give... More

Having played golf nearby a few times over the years when in Brighton, I was amazed to discover that further up the road was the main viewing area for the Dyke. What an amazing find and even though it was a bit cloudy, you could still see for miles across the downs of Southern England. Lots of cyclists, walkers, pinickers... More

This gem should be the jewel in the Sussex crown. We arrived to find two ladies asking for their money back, and she only asked for a cup of tea, but unfortunately that is what she got, no saucer, no spoon, no milk, just a cup with tea in it!!! We should of left with them. My husband went to... More

We went there by open topped bus from Brighton Pier, an interesting ride. We walked along a (tiny) part of the South Downs Way; easy walking and great views.

Take Dyke Road out of Brighton or catch the 72 bus to Devil's Dyke. From this high point you have a marvellous view over the Sussex Downs. It's the site of an old Ice Age fort, traces of which can still be seen in the chalk. There are excellent walking tracks of various lengths and difficulties as well as a... More
