EXPLORE the South Downs over summer with the Discovery ticket.
Launched this week, the ticket allows unlimited, one-day bus travel across the region for £12.50 for a family.
Two-for-one offers with the ticket are available at Petworth House and Park and Bignor Roman Villa, among others. The Cowdray Ruins is offering 25 per cent off full-price tickets.
Another incentive to explore the region this summer is a new limited edition ice cream flavour, voted for by South Downs residents and created by local Downsview Farmhouse, which will launch to coincide with the ticket roll out.
As a picnic in the fresh air proved a favourite South Downs activity for 71 per cent of residents, many chose the ‘Cream Tea’ flavoured ice cream, containing strawberries, clotted cream and poppy seeds, as the taste that conjured up their experiences of the South Downs.
For one day only, on Saturday July 5, this exclusive ice cream flavour will be available for £2 per cup at selected locations across the South Downs including Arundel Castle, Queen Elizabeth Country Park, Lewes Castle and Seven Sisters Sheep Centre.
