Guided Walks in Sussex
Join Kathryn from Sussex Bloggers, an experienced walking tour guide on a guided walk along the South Downs in West Sussex.
Kathryn has lived in West Sussex all her life and loves learning about the countryside and the hidden history it holds, local folktales and the disappearing Sussex dialect. Kathryn currently offers three walks in the South Downs, a few miles north of Chichester in West Sussex. Please scroll down to the calendars to book.
Planning a corporate day out? Walking in the countryside is the best stress buster there is, invigorating the mind and enabling you to think more clearly.
For further enquiries and to request alternative dates and times, larger group numbers, or to combine two walks to create a full day’s walking itinerary, please contact me at KathrynSussexWalks@gmail.com.
Tree tunnel walk to a Sussex Windmill
A leisurely 4 mile walk through the Sussex countryside lasting approximately two hours. This is a ‘there and back’ walk that leads to a restored windmill with stunning views across the South Downs to the sea and, on a clear day, the Isle of Wight.
Along the way, we’ll learn about the history of the area dating back over 500,000 years as well as local folklore and the dying Sussex dialect.
If you’d like to do this walk on a date or time not shown on the calendar, please do ask.
South Downs, wildflowers and woodlands walk
This is a moderate 4-mile circular walk through ancient woodlands and across the South Downs lasting approximately two hours. Depending on the time of year we may see bluebell woods or poppy fields.
Choose an evening walk for the best chance to see some deer. Whatever the time of year we’ll see some stunning hilltop views.
If you’d like to do this walk on a date or time not shown on the calendar, please do ask. This walk is not available on a Monday (unless it is a bank holiday) nor on a Tuesday following a bank holiday.
Vineyard, tree tunnel, windmill and wine walk
A leisurely 4.5 mile walk through the Sussex countryside lasting approximately three hours. This is a part circular and part ‘there and back’ walk that leads to a restored windmill with stunning views across the South Downs to the sea. Much of the walk is the same route as my original ‘Tree tunnel walk to a Sussex windmill’ with additional stops at the ruins of a 12th-century priory and at the vineyard itself for a glass of wine (over 18 years only).
If you’d like to do this walk on a date not shown on the calendar, please do ask. This walk is not possible on a Saturday.
Truly magical experience. Kathryn was so easy to get on with and super knowledgeable about the area and the history it holds. The landscape is a must see! I would highly recommend this excursion
This walk was delightful. Loved the views, the history and especially the folklore tales. Kathryn is very sweet and engaging. I look forward to attending another of her walks.
