This walk around Lewes takes you past many of the best-known landmarks in East Sussex's historic county town. Starting from the railway station, the circular route first heads towards Cliffe High Street and the old bridge across the Ouse. You then return along the High Street past the town hall to the peace and tranquillity of The Pells. Returning to the town centre past Lewes Castle, you head for Keere Street, which leads to The Grange, with its peaceful gardens and Anne of Cleves' House. The last part of the walk passes the ruined Lewes Priory.

Very much enjoyed this 'discovery route' in May 2021. we live near to Lewes yet we discovered corners and historic places that we had never found before. Lewes is a very attractive town and has a unique, vibrant and thriving community. Checked out on the web a few of the place names in the route before we set out and discovered lots more fascinating facts and information. A most rewarding walk in every sense.

A well crafted walk showing the best of Lewes Town plus a walk along the Ouse.

MAke sure you are wearing walking boots or wellies if you this walk after rain... the footpath next to the Ouse was very muddy when we went. Very clear instructions.

Although the map looks rather crowded with numbers, the instructions are pretty foolproof so you shouldn't have any problems finding your way around. Have fun!
