Now the full heat of the summer has past, a weekend in Brighton is a time when you can be a little more active. So, instead of just lolling on the beach or shopping, use the city as a base for day trips in Brighton and get exploring.
The South Downs Society has organised a week of walks and strolls across the South Downs – the UK’s newest national park.
There’s fifteen different routes marked out, with plenty on offer for tourists after family weekends in Brighton as well as for more enthusiastic wanderers.
There’s no cost involved and you’ll be getting access to some of the finest countryside and attractions.
The shortest walk is just 4.5 miles, the longest 14 miles. This weekend, there are two longer routes to explore, both easily accessible from Brighton.
On Saturday, walkers will start from Billingshurst Station and enjoy 11.5 miles of Sussex tracks and trails – with a pub stop in Wisborough Green. Those fancying a little more strenuous endeavours should opt for the final route of the week, from Bosham Station via Devil’s Humps for a picnic stop, before walking on to West Ashling.
Visiting Brighton you’ll find walks all week, and for more information check the South Downs Society website.
Budget weekends in Brighton don’t come much cheaper than this, all walks are free – just remember to bring the must-have fashion accessory of any late British summer: the waterproof!Share on Facebook
