The George at Burpham

The George at Burpham

A very pleasant circular walk along the banks of the river Arun, through fields, then up to the Downs where there are magnificent views of the Arun Valley and Arundel, with its castle rising high above the town. This is river and downland walking at its best.

Burpham itself is a small attractive village, at the end of a long road which clings to the eastern side of the River Arun Valley and then stops – meaning there is no through traffic, so it’s great walking. For a pint and a walk (or some good food), the 17th Century George is very popular.
