Firle Beacon - Best of England Travel Guides

Firle Beacon

Firle Beacon sits at 217 metres high and offers incredible views in all directions. The Beacon is situated behind the pretty village of Firle and is partway along the “South Downs Way” which stretches for 100 miles from Eastbourne to Winchester. This particular stretch has some of the best views.

Surprisingly you are able to drive up to this part of the walk, which is fantastic if you are wanting to enjoy the heights without the hike. Paragliders often use this as a jumping point and on a clear day you can see them soaring through the skies. Views out to the sea and inland are unbeatable.
