    Cissbury Ring is the largest hill fort in Sussex and is more than 5,000 years-old. From the summit, which stands at more than 600 feet (184 m) tall, you are afforded breathtaking views over the countryside, all the way to Brighton and the chalk cliffs of the coast. On a clear day, you can even see the Isle of Wight. During spring and autumn you can see a wide variety of migratory birds as Cissbury is one of the first coastal landing points. The fort is managed by the National Trust and is accessible at any time, free of charge.
