The Big Lemon runs walks in the Sussex countryside between April and September. We generally take the bus out into the countryside, walk at a leisurely pace for about 3 hours taking in the scenery and finishing for lunch at a nice old country pub.
Most walks are between 6-8 miles long and are aimed 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.
Walks for 2017
This year we are walking the eastern half of the South Downs Way, a 100 mile national trail that spans the length of the spectacular South Downs from the ancient English capital Winchester in the west, to Eastbourne and the white cliffs of Beachy Head in the east.
We will walk a different section of the South Downs Way each month, making our way from the picture-postcard village of Amberley in April, to Beachy Head in October, finishing at the famous cliffs where the Downs meet the sea. Each walk will start where the previous one finished, and each will finish at a nice country pub for a well-earned rest.
