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.
Adult: £9; Concessions: £7.50; Students: £6; Children: £4.50 Family (up to 2 adults and 3 children): £18

Some feedback from previous walks:
Went on the Washington to Bramber via Chanctonbury Ring walk which was my first trip on the Big Lemon Bus! What a fantastic day out. Really enjoyed the walk with such lovely people. The walks always end in a country pub so you can have a drink or some food when you’ve finished. Would highly recommend the next walk to anyone who enjoys being out in the countryside. Thanks again for a wonderful day.
This summer I discovered the Big Lemon bus walks. I went on the last 4 and have loved every one. It’s always a really nice/friendly bunch of people and I’ve made new friends. The length of walks have been perfect for me too – around 8 miles with a pub at the end 🙂 Thanks to the lovely folks at Big Lemon for organising this. Looking forward to next year’s walks!
