Payment Methods



This route uses the same fine downland start as Time Out Country Walks Volume Two, Walk 24, Lewes to Saltdean, with imagnificent views across the plains of the river Ouse. After that, it crosses the remoter, less frequented heart of the downs to Rottingdean, a village on the outskirts of Brighton. The sea is in view throughout this part of the walk, and in winter the low-angled sun turns it a glittering silver.
