With days getting longer and weather (slightly) better, a good walk is a nice pastime for the weekends; we put together five different walk tours either in Brighton or in the surroundings, from nature and landscapes to the city’s streets, to fit everyone’s tastes!
From Skanky to Swanky – The North Laine Walk
The North Laine is a must-see for every Brighton tourist; from an industrial area to a vibrant and alternative cultural and artistic centre, the history of the most famous street in Brighton will be explained to you by Lyn Neville, qualified South East Blue Badge Tourist Guide specialising in Brighton and south-east England from BrightonWalks.com. She will show you shop and streets that only Brightonians know, together with the most famous venues.

Last but not least, Brighton and its surroundings have a wonderful range of landscapes and beautiful relaxing natural spots. Walking-lover Liz Hegarty, who has lived in Brighton for almost 40 years, organises the walking tours upon her discoveries during her own walking; she enjoys meeting people with the same passion and has worked with tourists from all over the world. Brighton Wanderlust provides a wide range of tours, from the Brighton-based ones, such as Marina and Preston Park, to the countryside walks, such as Sheepcote Valley and the Undercliff Walk.
