    Route Description for Lewes Circular Walk

    The Lewes Circular Walk takes you on a heart-pumping journey through the English countryside. Although most of the path is an easy and flat stroll, there are multiple steep climbs throughout. Beginning at the Pelham Pub, you will start your walk along the path, which showcases beautiful views of Rodmell.

    As you continue on, you will find yourself in the quaint town of Glyne, where you can stop and have afternoon tea at the Little Cottage tea rooms. When you are finished, continue on the path and you will find panoramic views over the stunning Mount Caburn, which will bring you down to Lewes, where more tea options (some of the best) are available. As you continue along the path, you will return back to the Pelham Pub where you began.
