You can get a bus from Brighton which takes you up to Ditching Beacon. You can see for miles over the Sussex countryside from the top. Stunning on a clear day.
The iconic Ditchling Beacon certainly lives up to expectations as the acid test for any aspiring cyclist.
What the other guy said. Mine from the viewpoint of walking up or cycling up here from Sussex Uni on a number of sunny summer days. Glorious view towards London and yes, the final hurdle before the home leg of the L2B bike ride.
Great views and good walk, about 6 miles or so, to Lewes in the east, or Devil's Dyke to the west
Did you ride your bike up here? I hope you rode your bike up here. It's one of the iconic bike climbs of Britain after all. One of the best views in Sussex if not the world. To the south you can usually see the sea and the Amex stadium in Falmer. To the east you can see Lewes and Beachy Head in the distance. To the north you can see the north downs and on exceptionally clear days you may be lucky enough to see the Shard in London (I claim to have seen it once but it's difficult to be sure). If you just rode up here and it's London to Brighton, congratulations for making it up, you've just about finished the ride and it's (almost) all downhill from here. Take a few minutes and think about what you just achieved. =) maybe you'll see me!
