NileGuide Expert Says:
Devils Dyke is so breathtaking you'll let out a sigh whether you climb down the hills, sit in the pub or attend the Beachdown Festival here.
- Devil's Dyke offers outstanding views over the South Downs, the western Weald to the north and the English Channel to the south. This National Trust landmark is still a favourite day out for Brighton families. Legend has it that the dyke, a deep valley, was created by the devil in an attempt to flood the Weald but he was disturbed when an old woman put a lighted candle in her window. The best way to get there is by open-topped bus from Brighton Pier, which runs at hourly intervals throughout the summer. There is a National Trust information point at the top and a pub.
