It’s time for another Summer of Sunday Walks!

The Big Lemon runs walks in the Sussex countryside between April and October. We generally take the bus out into the countryside, walk at a leisurely pace for about 3-4 hours taking in the scenery and finish for lunch at a nice old country pub.

Most walks are between 4-7 miles long and aim to provide good exercise in beautiful country surroundings without being too strenuous, though some walks are quite hilly.

They are suitable for all ages from about 6 onwards, though younger ones are also welcome if you don’t mind carrying them part of the way!

All buses leave Old Steine (South) Stop S, Brighton at 10.30am and return about 4.30 – 5pm.
