Did you know there are over 14,000 acres of countryside in Brighton and the surrounding areas?
Recognised for its natural beauty the South Downs hold National Park status, plus Brighton & Lewes Downs have also achieved UNESCO World Biosphere site status. There are only a handful of sites in the world that include a city.
The perfect complement to a buzzing city, these areas allow you to escape to a scenic, tranquil world of down lands, footpaths, bridleways and byways.
Take a walk in the Brighton countryside, jump on a 'Breeze' bus to Stamer Park, Ditchling Beacon or Devil's Dyke, explore the South Downs & surrounding areas with a Discovery Ticket or cycle into Kipling's Rottingdean or join a woodland trail. The opportunities are endless.
You'll also find an abundance of plants, animals and wildlife both within the city limits and amidst the countryside around Brighton and Hove, all just moments from the city.
