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.

Tree Tunnel Walk to a Sussex Windmill

This leisurely 4-mile walk through the Sussex countryside lasts approximately two and a half hours and 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.

This walk starts and ends at a 200-year-old pub and can be combined with my Sussex Villages Walk with a break for lunch in between (refreshments not included).

Sussex Villages and Countryside Walk

Join me on an easy-going walk in the beautiful Sussex countryside at the foot of the South Downs.

We’ll explore two ancient Sussex villages dating back over a thousand years, passing cornfields and a vineyard along the way. This walks last about one and a half hours.

Guided walking tour of Sussex villages

We’ll see traditional thatched and flint cottages and a beautiful Norman church, arguably the finest in Sussex, and the ruins of a priory built over 900 years ago. (Please note that weddings, funerals and other events can stop us from entering the church so seeing inside cannot be guaranteed.)

As we walk, we’ll talk about local history, folklore and the disappearing Sussex dialect.

At different times of the year, sloes, blackberries, elderflowers and camomile can all be seen along the route.

The walk starts and ends at a traditional country pub that’s over 200 years old (refreshments not included).

This walk can be combined with my longer walk to a 300-year-old windmill with stunning views of the South Downs and a magical tree tunnel.

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
