5. Hike Up Devil’s Dyke

A great way to burn off all that delicious grub you’ve been sampling – take a hike up the stunning Devil’s Dyke located just 6 miles from the city centre.

6. Cycle Undercliff Walk

You can hire bikes at multiple places in town, including eBikes by the marina, and then you can set off down this five-kilometre stretch of coastline underneath the impressive white cliffs.

Now Brighton & Hove Albion have hit the big time as a Premier League club, getting tickets won’t be easy (particularly with big teams in town), but you may get lucky if you’re quick!

Or hire a pitch and have some good sporting competition with your stag group!
