Lovely walk to the fort at the end of the Down. Steep steps up or can walk up a fairly steep path. National Trust car park (free to members) and cafe at the bottom/start.

If you are going to the beach then you drive down into the beach and park, we paid £3 there are steps if you wish to climb up, I didn't as I don't like heights!

Doesn't mention on board if NT members pay or not so can't be sure. Charges are £3.50 for all day. There is no hourly rate
