South Downs Hike - Arundel To Amberley

Now that Spring is here we've got time to go further out from London. For this hike we're heading to a lovely part of the South Downs with varied scenery, great panoramic views and some nice old fashioned villages.

We'll start in the town of Arundel and follow a 9 mile route to our final destination in the village of Amberley. At the start of the hike we'll get a great view of Arundel Castle as we walk through the town.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

After this we'll get the hardest part of the hike out the way with a walk uphill to our lunch stop overlooking the town where we'll have a 360 degree panoramic view of the sea to the south and the South Downs to the north.

 

 

 

 

 

 




After lunch we'll head downhill and along the river Arun to the village of Burpham where we'll stop in a pub for a quick drink and a toilet break.

After this we'll head through a mixture of hills, valleys and woodlands to the pub at Amberley where we'll have some well earned food and a drink or two before heading back to London.

We'll meet at 10:00 at Victoria Station outside of the ticket office and head to the platform at 10:20 to catch the 10:32 train to Arundel. Our train arrives in Arundel at 12:02 and the hike is likely to end in Amberley at around 5pm.

The price of the hike is £18.10. This includes:

Group save return ticket to Arundel (£14.10).

Organiser's fee (£4) - the first 10 people to sign up just pay the train fare.

Refunds

There are up to 4 places are available for people who want to travel independently (either by car or from a different station). If you'd like to take one of these 4 places, send me an email (in this case you'll just need to pay the £4 organiser's fee on the day).
