Sunday Walks

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.

Sunday 2nd April – Amberley to Washington

Sunday 7th May – Washington to Bramber via Chanctonbury Ring

Sunday 4th June – Bramber to Pyecombe via Devil’s Dyke

Sunday 2nd July – Pyecombe to Falmer via Ditchling Beacon

Sunday 6th August – Falmer to Southease via Swanborough Hill

Sunday 3rd September – Southease to Litlington via Firle Beacon and Alfriston

Sunday 1st October – Litlington to Beachy Head via the Seven Sisters

 Some feedback from previous walks:

Superbly organised rambles into breathtakingly beautiful Sussex country side with creative, imaginative, highly entertaining & like-minded people


A great way to spend a Sunday, fresh air, countryside, good company and a pub lunch

      Thanks for this! Sadly the October walk was our last one for the season but we’ll be running them next year too! April – October, we’ll post the program up on this page in the new year 🙂

    Hi! Do I need to book a Sunday walk or just turn up? As I live over in Worthing there may be some Sundays when it is ‘spur of the moment’ but don’t want to go all that way to find I can’t join cos full up! Looking forward to trying some of the walks this year.

    We’ve saved the date i.e April 2nd any idea where the walk will be? Not too strenuou for the first of the season! Shared mates rates last year,what a good deal.


  3. The walks are excellent, well organised, very sociable, and extremely good value from a transportation – and less toll on the environment. Looking forward to first Big Lemon Walk of the season this Sunday.
