A Walker’s Handbook

Brighton as a city is bursting with activities for everyone to enjoy, from a buzzing nightlife, vintage stores and quirky cafe’s theres much to see and experience here. However, with all the life in Brighton itself it’s easy to forget that the city is surrounded by beautiful English country side (unless if you’ve popped up the i360). Below I’ve put together a little ‘Walker’s Handbook’, filled with information and direct links, to the very best walking routes East Sussex has to offer, each easily accessible from Brighton.

East Sussex as a county is best known for its beautiful vista, from rolling hills, gorgeous coast lines and dramatic cliff tops, it’s the perfect place for those who want to get out and stretch their legs. The South Downs National Park is one of the newest parks in the UK (only being made official in 2011) and has over 20 walking routes, so if you’re looking for a trip up the cliffs, or over hills, theres sure to be the perfect route for you.

My personal must see spots

South downs Way – A stone throw away from the centre of Brighton, enjoy the wonderful views from the very top of the South Downs. The perfect place to take the family, and views which I personally have never tiered of seeing. A great trip for the day as after your walk theres a perfect lunch stop at Vintage Inn

(If you want a little more back story into the surroundings you’re trending, just click A little history to help you enjoy your walk even more)

The Seven Sisters – Located in Eastbourne, get there from Brighton by Bus  or Train  (its worth the trip) and see the marvel of the Seven Sisters. A series of chalk white cliffs by the English Channel.
