NEW HIKE - Lewes to Brighton - Hiking, History and Beaching
Time & Location
About the Event
Take your swimwear, your towel, and your hiking boots! We are going on a new trip to the South Coast.
We will climb hills and get you all sweaty before we can relax on the beach and famous Brighton Pier, where you will be liking your fingers, full of the grease of the tasty fries and fresh fish or a vegan version of it!
Nevertheless, we are out for a great time so come with me!
Remember to dance the famous Macarena on the previous day, it has been known to turn the rain into a gorgeous sunny day.

This town, whose early settlements dating back to the Iron age, was once home to the Anglo-Saxons and has been the location for an ambush that King Henry VIII and his army had managed to escape, reminds us of its rich history, in every corner.
We will walk through hills and woodlands, all the way to the unofficial LGBTQA capital of the UK and one of Britain's favourite seaside towns, Brighton, and its beaches, its cliffs and we will end our hike with a tasty fish and chip on the beach with our feet in the water or even a swim for the beach lovers.
