Seven Sisters: E-Biking Tour

3. Seven Sisters: E-Biking Tour

A bike tour adapted to your preferences. Ride modern mountain bikes along the Sussex coastline from Seaford train station along the Cuckmere River to the historic village of Alfriston, or choose the Rathfinny Winery Route out to the top of the South Downs to take in the views of the distant North Downs, before riding downhill for a well deserved lunch break in the historic village of Alfriston. After lunch you can take either the Friston Forest route to see some World War II bomb craters located in the heart of the forest, you can even choose to ride down them! The second option is the easier route along the road to the Seaford Cliffs to view the famous Seven Sisters, before a short ride back to Seaford train station taking in views of Seaford and the surrounding views from the top of the Seaford Cliffs. Ride time is around 3 hours (not including travel time), you are able to do as much or as little riding as you like as everyone has different levels of ability. Allow at least 5 hours or more for the total ride and train, with the trip from Brighton to Seaford taking 30 minutes by train and costing £3.30 return.

This was a great day in Sussex, and a wonderful break from the bustle of London. We enjoyed the small-group experience (15 travelers max) and the un-hurried pace of the tour. We never felt especially rushed through the stops, and you're never in the van for very long. I am not fond of tours where most of the time is spent on the road, so this was a great day! Our guide Adam was very knowledgeable and personable, and Ish, who met us at London Bridge station in London, was also charming and made the process of getting from London to Brighton very smooth. I do wish the tour had included time in Brighton, or at least a drive around the city to see the main sites/attractions. You are invited to stay longer after the tour is over to explore Brighton on your own, which is what I did with my husband. Adam gave us great recommendations for restaurants. Additionally, I left my phone in the van and they took great care in making sure it got returned to me. 5/5 stars. Highly recommend!

Our guide was amazing and knew all of the secret local spots to have the best views! We couldn’t have picked a better activity to do on our last day in England!

Absolutely fantastic! Our tour guide Adam was great, cliffs are breathtaking and absolute must see :) Highly recommend.
