Discover Your County: Sussex Walking Tours
Sussex is a beautiful county. It’s a simple statement, but a true one, one that everyone who lives and visits here can happily agree on. The best way to appreciate what we have here on our doorstep is not on a train or in a car, but is by walking it. Taking one of the many Sussex walking tours available will give you the chance to really see the county as it should be seen.

Sussex Ghost Walks
There are a number of different themed walks available, depending on where and what you want to see and discover more about. The Pevensey Ghost Walk takes place every Saturday at 7.30pm, and lasts for 90 minutes. Here you will hear about white ladies and smugglers, murders and mysteries – and it’s taken by lantern light for even more atmosphere! The Lewes Ghost Walk is very popular, and must be booked in advance. The Alfriston Ghost Walk includes spectral hounds, the famous Blue Lady, and smugglers’ tales to scare you (in a fun way, of course!). Each tour costs £8 per adult and £4 per child except for Alfriston (£6 per adult, £3 per child).
Sussex and neighbouring Kent are famous for their long history of smuggling. It was a bloody and brutal time, and the history and stories that come from it are endlessly interesting. On this guided walk, follow the route taken by smugglers in the eighteenth century through Romney Marsh to Rye and discover who smuggled what and why.
