There are a few ways to climb this. Mainly the long way which has more parking spaces provided, or the short way where parking is very limited and it's steeper. Some mad people like to walk all around it. It’s not suitable for the disabled. Good shoes recommended. Dogs love it but must be kept on a lead where the... More

Brilliant example of an ancient fort. Tough climb to the top but the views make it really worthwhile.

Cissbury Ring is a chalk hill with 360 degree views across the South Downs, The Weald, across to Brighton & Seven Sisters and even the Isle of Wight. Very ancient history, with the remains of Neolithic flint mines on the SW side, and Iron Age ramparts that gave the hill the 'Ring' suffix. Second only to Maiden Castle in size.... More

Lulled into a false sense of security by the gradual climb up, it was a bit of a shock to find the peak was very steep. But was it worth all the grunting and groaning? Oh yes! Beautiful views and so quiet. Gave the feeling that you were the only people in the world. Lots of space for dog walking... More

Visited here on a gorgeously warm day. Plenty of routes to choose from with spectacular views across the South downs. The main chalk path isn't too difficult but not suitable for the disabled. Also, there's very little shelter from the rain. Parked about two miles away - limited parking.

Spur of the moment walk round Cissbury Ring. On our doorstep but have never been before. Will definitely be going again. Shame about lack of space in the car park though.
