Take a trip on the West Hill cliff railway and travel back in time at Smugglers Adventure – acres of underground caves and caverns, rich in history.

Delve into the labyrinth of secret tunnels and discover the dangers and hardships faced by Sussex smugglers of the eighteenth century. Join notorious smuggler ‘Hairy Jack’ as he leads you through the underground caverns on a voyage back through time to the heyday of smuggling.

Revisit the mysterious past of this unique attraction, including their use as a military hospital for Wellington’s troops during the Napoleonic Wars and as an air-raid shelter in World War II.

Learn about the strange carved figures to the spectacular ballroom, royal visits to ghostly apparitions and the bizarre re-discovery of the caves by the Victorian Joseph Golding.
