If youre spending a long amount of time in brighton i recommend you visit devils dyke, bank holidays and sundays are the best time. The views are gorgeous on a clear day and theres plenty of room for children to play. If you do visit dont miss out on walking down through the dyke, perfect for a sunny, late afternoon.

Just a few miles outside Brighton devils dyke is kind of countryside-lite. In that it's easily accessible to all and there's plenty of that there nature when you get there. Drive or take the bus from brighton station. Stunning walks with amazing views across the South Downs weather permitting the area also attracts hoards of para gliders and hang gliders... More

Iron age dyke running for many miles from Woodditton to Lode. There appears to be no convincing reason why it was built but nature loves it. Good for a stroll and popular with dog walkers too.

Lovely views looking back towards Brighton and Hove as well as into the countryside of West Sussex. Lots of walks on offer. Free parking on Devil's Dyke road or a pay & display car park where the best views are. This is located next to the Devil's Dyke pub. The walk goes down through the valley and to Saddlescomb farm....

This place is a bit out of the way. It helps to have a car, though there are buses. The Dyke Hotel is nice, but pricey. Check the weather and take some food with you; great views on a clear day and if you're lucky you'll see some maniacs hang-gliding!.

Beautiful and dramatic views. Knowing the history of Devil's Dyke during Victorian times really added interest to the beauty of this place. Some good walks in the area.

My wife and i went to Devils Dyke for a lovely hike. We parked at the Devil's Dyke pub and payed the £2 parking fee. Free to national trust members. We then followed the extended purple route, the best we could. Many of the sign posts where not very well maintained so we ended up on a 4hr hike. Great... More

What a lovely place to go, fantastic views of south downs and you can see for miles around that area. Somewhere to have a picnic, walk the kids or dogs. Also has a restaurant and pub. Nothing not to enjoy really, you can even buy an ice cream from the ice cream van there.
