Transport & Meeting Point

We'll meet at Charing Cross station from 8:15am and leave the meeting point at 8:30am for the 8:45am train.

Planned arrival time back into London of 8:00pm (we have a group train ticket and you are committed for the day until then).


This rewarding walk starts with a fine clifftop coastal walk with steep climbs along the way. This section is the most strenuous part of the walk. The Look Out offers panoramic views across the whole of Romney Marsh and the Kent Downs beyond.

Hastings Castle was built high on the sandstone rocks above the town. It is a ruin today.

Visiting Winchelsea today it can be difficult to imagine with the sea over 2km away, that 700 years ago it was one of England's leading ports.

St. Thomas' Church and Rye. These ancient buildings, cobbled streets and secret passages, once the haunt of smugglers and highwaymen, regularly attract film crews in search of historical settings for period productions.
