From London: Brighton & Seven Sisters Small-Group Tour

1. From London: Brighton & Seven Sisters Small-Group Tour

Leave the city crowds behind and indulge in a relaxing experience through the southeastern coast of England. Drive out of London and into lush beachside landscapes on a scenic route. Visit the famous Seven Sisters cliffs, then enjoy plenty of free time in the picturesque town of Brighton. Begin the day by departing London and traveling through the beautiful scenery of South Downs National Park. Make a stop in Alfriston, one of the prettiest villages in the region, before arriving at the seaside to visit one of the most recognizable sights of Britain’s coastline: the Seven Sisters. Admire a stunning sequence of seven undulating chalk cliffs. Absorb the breathtaking sea views, take a bracing walk along the coastal path, and stop for incredible photo opportunities along the way. Get back on the road on the way to Brighton. Reach the charming town by early afternoon and have some free time to explore. Wander along The Lanes, a collection of quirky narrow streets home to a variety of shopping and eateries. Grab a bite or head over to the famous Royal Pavilion, once the exotic seaside residence of King George IV. Take a relaxing stroll along the waterfront to unwind after a long day and discover the vibrant Palace Pier. Finally, get back on board for the return trip to London.

We had the such a great time on the chocolate tour, Hannah was the perfect guide. So friendly, great with the children and really knowledgeable about Brightons history. She appeared to have a great rapport with the people in the places we stopped at which was fantastic. The tour itself was just brilliant. Id recommend it to anyone with a sweet tooth or even as an interesting way to see the sights. Definitely a must do when visiting Brighton! Thanks again Hannah x

We had a really fun couple of hours - the clues were just the right level of difficulty for me and my teenage daughter. We got them all without asking for clues but some took longer than others. We also saw parts of Brighton we hadn’t otherwise seen and learnt some fun facts along the way

Couldn’t understand what to do after the first meet point Couldn’t understand the woman on the phone Doesn’t half hour texting s woman on what’s app Kids got bored So we just went to the beach Not user friendly Would. Not recommend

Really well thought out treasure hunt that helped us find places in Brighton that we wouldn’t have found ourselves.

Excellent tour don’t have breakfast before you go !! Loved it all Sophie was excellent
