We arrived here around lunch time and it was a clear day, the view from the top is amazing you can see for miles and there is a map to show you just where the key points are

Stunning views and lovely pub to have a drink in or lunch. There are beautiful walks to do with views of Brighton and the coast on one side and the sussex countryside on the other. It can get cold and windy but well worth the effort.

Great for the family, want a long walk up and down the valley into the hills. Meeting plenty of locals on walks with their dogs or just a stroll after a long hearty lunch at the pub there. Get their early as long ques.

After seeing this hill from West Sussex we decided to stop on the way along the coast. Plenty of free parking spots we were able to plan a route from the top and managed to stick to it. An hours walk heading west up high then along into the dyke to the east, we soon got the blood flowing after... More

When I came here as a boy I never appreciated the beauty and extraordinary combination of contrasting terrain. The views a are incredible even on a bad day and the geography will take your breath away

A good walk across the downs to get there but the pub was pretty average and old fashioned. There is a sizable car park if you are driving and some lovely views. the Dyke itself is striking, although I did not really know what to expect - it is a very deep valley.

I go to Brighton a lot but on few occasions I go for walks around devils dyke. The views are absolutely breath taking. The last time I was there the wind and rain was so strong, it blew me over and I winded myself on a steep climb up one of the hills. So check the weather before doing any... More

Whether you're here to walk, cycle, horse ride, or most other sports, this is a stunning place to be. The undulating hills offer fantastic views and enjoyable traveling.

Described by Constable as "the grandest view in the world"-Amazing vantage point-great spot for watching paragliders and kiters soaring down the steep hillside on a summer's weekend. Admire the deep gorge, allegedly dug out by the Devil to form the longest gorge (over a mile) to drown parishioners . Wonderful woodland walks and nature reserve, topped by great pub food... More
