Bramber Castle Hiking Trip  £35

Timeline

We will meet at 9:30 at Shoreham-by-Sea and walk through wide-open grasslands with cattle and sheep. The track is part of the South Downs National park and includes a few moderate hills and  Bramber Castle, one of the oldest Norman castle ruins.

Upper Beeding

After about two hours we will arrive at Upper Beeding with its stunning panoramic views. The perfect place for a picnic, so don't forget your sandwiches!

What to bring?


It is up to the weather. You need to pack different things up to the weather conditions. But please keep in mind that the weather can change, and it can be windy up the hills! Here is a little tick list!

  1. Minimum one litre of water
  2. Sun cover (A hat, sunscreen and a shawl or something to cover your shoulders with.)
  3. Sandwiches for the picnic (cutlery if needed)
  4. Any medication that you need!
  5. Tissues and hand sanitiser

  2. A beany hat for wind and sun.
  3. A waterproof jacket (and waterproof trousers!) if it rains.
  4. Cloves

What to expect?


Duration: 4-5 hours
Meeting Point: 9:30 at La Patisserie Bakery at Shoreham-by-Sea.

Our walk will include wide-open grassland and some moderate hills. After about 2 hours we arrive at Beeding Hill, for a picnic. After a short stroll through Bramber, we will explore the Castle ruins.

The last part of the walk will be along the River Adur, passing many local birds, like the grey heron, the little egret and swans. We will be back in Shoreham-by-Sea by 2:30 to 3pm. (All times are estimated!)

From here, you can go to one of the local pubs, explore the port, the famous old harbour or the beach.




What if it rains?


There is no such thing as bad weather, there is only the wrong choice of clothing! Dressing in layers is the best way to keep warm for changing weather conditions!

We will go in any weather, but the route will change if it is too windy and rainy. Surprisingly, it doesn't happen very often. The rain is mostly limited to short showers, and the rest of the day is actually alright. Make sure to wear good shoes, a warm jumper and waterproofs!




What about toilets?


There are toilets at the start, at the end and in Bramber. There are no toilets in the South Downs, but many bushes and not many people!




What fitness level is it?


It is a moderate walk, including a few hills. You need to be fit and healthy enough to walk for about 4 - 5 hours, and you should be able to walk up a moderate slope!
