Much of Lewes district in East Sussex is in the South Downs including beautiful downland villages such as Ditchling and Firle, and the small seaside town of Seaford, as well as the historic town of Lewes itself with its castle perched above. There are some good walks along the River Ouse, especially around the picturesque villages of Barcombe, Barcombe Cross and Barcombe Mills.

Other highlights include Plumpton racecourse, Charleston (the home of the Bloomsbury Group of writers and painters in Sussex) and Glyndeboune (for Opera in the countryside).

See the Lewes Walks page for the following featured walks.
