The Sussex Hospices Trail consists of 26 digitally mapped walks which have been created across the length and breadth of the county, covering more than 200 miles of coast and countryside.

The entire Trail runs from Chichester in the west to St Leonards in the east and reaches as far north as Horsham. A detailed guide and map for each walk can be found either as free downloads on the iFootpath website or via the iFootpath app which is £1.99. Both contain full text directions, a map showing the exact route, photos, points of interest and background details of sites along the way.

If you are visiting Brighton, Walk Number 5 is a fascinating and easy 7 mile route. It begins at Shoreham Rail Station (15 minutes by train from Brighton) then takes in the coastal stretch to the west of the city including Shoreham Port, Hove Lagoon and British Airways i360.

Walk Number 6 is a stunning 11 mile route which begins in the bustle of Brighton Station, before heading down towards the Sealife Centre, past Brighton Pier and Volks Railway, then along towards the Marina before heading up and over the South Downs at Telscombe and then concluding in the tranquil village of Southease. From there hourly trains, via Lewes, will bring you back to Brighton Station.

The Sussex Hospices Trail is unique to Sussex and was devised to raise awareness and funds for the 12 hospice care providers in the county. Here in Sussex this invaluable service gets only 22% of its funding from the Government. As a walker you can make a further donation of you wish, send in photos to the Trail’s social media pages or just enjoy the walks for their own sake.

 In any event you will discover some engaging, photogenic and quirky places you would otherwise not have seen.
