Brighton Pavilion - Brighton Pier - Red Hill - The Racecourse - The Laines

A real variety here, starting from the famous Pavilion, visiting the shops, cafes and pubs of the Lanes, a stretch along the seafront by the pier and a hike onto the chalk downs for views of sea and city, passing along the perimeter of the racecourse.

Along the way you save a mile or so on foot by catching the Volks Railway along the seafront. The seafront of course has plenty of cafes, bars, fish and chip shops, a sea life centre and of course the pier itself.

Climbing away from the sea you catch a glimpse of famous Roedean public school and then, as you reach the crest of the hill, you walk along the perimeter of the racecourse. Ahead the racecourse stand is prominent on the horizon.

You return through typical Brighton streets and a pretty park, finally walking through the eclectic mixture of shops and cafes of the North Laines, a great place to have a fruit smoothie or a Cornish pastie, say, to round off your walk.

This walk features in the 'Pathways' book - for more information click on the link on the Walkingworld homepage.

We did this walk in June 2011. It was a very good walk, well worth doing. Parking near to the Pavilion cost us £14.00 for 5 hours. Being from Yorkshire, this nearly killed us! It is cheaper along the sea front and at Black Rock we noticed that it was £5 all day. Thanks David and Chris.
