Escape to the South Downs for free during National Parks Week
While Brighton & Hove is well known for being a city by the sea, you may not be aware that we are also very close to the countryside. The city is an access point for the stunning South Downs National Park, and as this week is National Parks Week it's the perfect time to visit.
The park are encouraging visitors to Discover Another Way to visit instead of driving, so this week (29th July - 4th August) you and your family can travel to the Downs by bus for free! It doesn't get much better then that, so pack a picnic and hop on a bus and go to Devil's Dyke, Stanmer Park or Ditchling Beacon. To download your voucher go to: www.southdowns.gov.uk/discover But if you can't go this week then you can still enjoy half price bus travel for the rest of the summer holidays.
Watch this video to see how easy and fun it is to get to the Downs by bus:
