map to holling bury hillfort - remember the map is not the territory - come there

Hollingbury Hillfort is at the top of Ditchling Rd just past the large antena. It in the middle of Hollingbury public golf course where you will find a large grassy bank, which is the bronze age burial barrow. We will be in the very centre of the barrow that is surrounded by the gorse bushes. - its worth going just for the amazing view of the whole of Brighton from up there.

there are two car parks on there - if you are driving its best to park on the layby that is on the side of ditchling road, where it says easy parking.

Or if you prefer, the 26 and 46 Bus from the Steine go up there too

or even try to contact us for a liftshare
