    • Sussex at its most sublime

      Explore the spectacular and blissful beauty of Sussex’s South Downs National Park - England’s newest National Park - on this guided day tour from Brighton’s vibrant city center. Riding from the urban oases of Brighton’s Victoria Gardens and Preston Park, you’ll emerge into the luscious landscapes of Stanmer Woods, Stanmer Park, Hollingbury Woods and Hollingbury Park, all postcard-perfect parts of the South Downs’ Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. With the flexibility of bike rental and a knowledgeable local guide, spending a day in the sublime countryside of Sussex is as convenient as it is memorable.

      Beginning with a glide through Victoria Gardens past the exquisite exterior of St. Peter’s Church, your guide will lead you through the gorgeous greenery of Brighton’s Level Gardens and Preston Park before the sensational fields of the South Downs begin to unfurl beneath your bike wheels. This is a ride of greatly rejuvenating properties as the Sussex countryside soothes a busy mind with its breathtaking vistas of rolling hills, chalky cliffs, and the elegant rhythms of the English Channel gracing the horizon. Bike through a sound bath of gently chirruping bird song, and look up to catch sight of birds of prey soaring spectacularly over the crests of the hills. Your guided day tour takes you through the picturesque landscape of Hollingbury Park and Woods, with a stop at the golf club.

      Weaving your bicycle through the Great Wood of Stanmer, you’ll be inspired by the patterns of dappled sunshine on the path in front as you bike beneath a burgeoning green canopy. You’ll soon find yourself in the serene village of Stanmer itself, where the tour will enjoy a very British break at a local tea room, where you can soak up the sublime atmosphere of the South Downs over a traditional cup of tea or drink of your choice.
