Beachy Head marks the beginning of the South Downs Way which runs 161 km along the Sussex Downs to Winchester. The cliff itself towers at 162m (530ft) above the sea below, making it the highest chalk sea cliff in Britain. Each and every BnB Brighton has would love this view, yet if you want to take it in, you'll need a short trip along the coast.
The dramatic white cliffs and gently undulating 'Downs' make Beachy Head an area of outstanding natural beauty and tranquility, which belies its proximity to the busy coastal towns of Brighton and Eastbourne.
The area can be accessed by car on the coastal road A259 from Brighton towards Eastbourne. Buses regularly run from Brighton in this direction, although alighting at Eastbourne and hiking on the cliff paths to the top is a much more stunning, and satisfying (though exhausting!) experience. The Beachy Head walk also includes a hike to the foot of the lighthouse at low tide.
Beachy Head is a haven for those who like to walk or cycle. Or make a Brighton BnB your base for bird watching, hang-gliding or mountain biking through the nearby Friston Forest. In fact, the opportunity for countryside activity and adventure is so great, you won't believe you're less than 30 minutes away from the hotels in Brighton and all fun of the seafront!
Traditional village pubs and quaint English tea rooms dotted around the area will round off a tranquil and enjoyable excursion as part of a weekend in Brighton.
