Product Description

Brighton Scenic Flight -Battles and Sands – 60minutes

ShorehamThe nearest town to the airport is Shoreham which enjoys a unique location, bordered on the north by the South Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, on the west by the open valley of the river Adur and on the south by the river and Shoreham Beach.
Jack and Jill WidmillsIn summer 1973, Jack and Jill became cinema stars when Universal Pictures made the film The Black Windmill. Actors featured in the film included Michael Caine, Janet Suzman, Donald Pleasence and Joss Ackland. The windmills were featured in Series 3 of the Channel 4 programme "Treasure Hunt" first broadcast 31 January 1985.
Lewes Castle The first fortification on the site was a wooden keep, later converted to stone. It is unusual for a motte and bailey construction in that it has two mottes. It is one of only two such remaining in the country, the other being Lincoln. The Barbican is a particularly fine example of its type.
The Longman of Wilmington Locally, the figure was once often called the "Green Man".[1] The Long Man is 235 feet (72 m) tall,[2] holds two "staves", and is designed to look in proportion when viewed from below. Formerly thought to originate in the Iron Age or even the neolithic period, a 2003 archaeological investigation has shown that the figure may have been cut in the Early Modern era – the 16th or 17th century AD. From afar the figure appears to have been carved from the underlying chalk; but the modern figure is formed from white-painted breeze blocks and lime mortar.
Herstmonceux castle Herstmonceux Castle is one of the oldest significant brick buildings still standing in England.[1] The castle was renowned for being one of the first buildings to use that material in England, and was built using bricks taken from the local clay, by builders from Flanders.[2] It dates from 1441.[3] Construction began under the then-owner, Sir Roger Fiennes and then, from his death in 1449, by his son, Lord Dacre. The emphasis is on grandeur and comfort instead of defence.
Battle AbbeyOn this spot in the year 1066, the armies of King Harold and William the Conqueror clashed at the Battle of Hastings. Battle Abbey is a partially ruined Benedictine abbey in Battle, East Sussex, England. The abbey was built on the site of the Battle of Hastings and dedicated to St Martin of Tours.
Seven SistersSeven Chalk Cliffs that run east from Seaford towards Eastbourne. This is a disappearing wonder, every single year the Seven Sisters is being nibbled away by 30 or 40 centimetres, and it is all down to erosion. As the cliffs erode they leave behind a base of chalk. The bottom of the cliffs but are exposed to the sea as the tide comes in and out, scouring channels and gulleys within the chalk.
Beachy HeadBeachy Head is a dramatic and beautiful chalk headland on the south coast of England. Its summit extends 535 feet above sea level. The imposing cliff tops offer tourists clear views for miles around, but are famous for another more disturbing reason as they provide an irresistible draw for those intent on committing suicide. On January 9th 2000, Paula Ramsden, a 32 year old mother of 2 fell from Beachy Head during a night-time stroll with her husband. He had recently increased her life insurance from £104,000 to £225,000. He was also having an affair.
The MarinaWith sailing boats, boardwalk and the latest in waterfront leisure and shopping, Brighton Marina is the largest marina destination in Europe with 1600 berths. Situated only minutes from Brighton’s City centre and a pebbles throw away from the beach, the marina offers an eclectic mix of daytime and night time entertainment.
BrightonBrighton was originally a small village which grew rapidly when sea cures were first recommended by doctors in the mid 1700s. The sea front became the place to be seen among fashionable society, and with the piers being built at the end of the 19th century. One of the most remarkable features of the town is the Royal Pavilion.
