Leave your Brighton BnB, get to the seafront and have a long look to your left: on a good day, and from the right place, you can just make out the Seven Sisters. Take a bike ride along the under-cliff passage if you want to see what this national treasure looks like up close, as the rocks here give you a real insight - and when you get to the end of the passage, the Seven Sisters come into view.
Seven Sisters, the seven peaks that rise and fall along the Sussex coast have watched over many shipwrecks, and nearby, pirates have historically favoured beaches in these parts. And if stories about pirates don't get your party started, there's always a few local tales to tell.
The stunning white cliffs are at the end of the Seven Sisters Country Park, which also has plenty to entice the family to get up and about, and exploring on a daytrip near Brighton.
Just a short ride on a bus from your Brighton BnB, this park has more than 280 hectares of chalk cliffs, and plenty of room for mountain biking or just walking together.
Leaving Brighton, you'll first pass Newhaven, then Seaford before you reach the park. Follow the South Downs Way, which runs along the edge of the cliffs and over each peak. Further on still is Beachy Head and worth every minute of the extra journey.
