Vera Lynn may not have written a song about them, but the white cliffs of Saltdean have their own stark beauty. You can stroll to this seaside village from Brighton Marina, courtesy of the Undercliff Pass – a 5km walkway along the seawall, where the chalk cliffs tower to your left and the sea crashes up dramatically from your right. Waterproofs recommended. At low tide, you’ll want a net for the rockpools, too. Saltdean itself is a nondescript patch of inter-war housing with a peaceful shingle beach and a great new children’s playpark. But it’s firmly on the weekenders’ map again thanks to the reopening of Saltdean Lido, an Art Deco treasure located just short of the seafront.
