The ever popular Eastbourne Walking Festival returns 18 – 27 September, encouraging visitors and residents to grab their walking boots and explore Eastbourne!

The 10 day festival is comprised of over 50 free-to-join guided walks, alongside a number of itineraries for self-guided walks around the town.

Showcasing the landscape

Eastbourne Borough Council Lead Cabinet Member for Tourism and Enterprise, Councillor Margaret Bannister said “This annual festival is a fantastic opportunity to showcase some of the amazing coast to country landscapes and famous landmarks that surround Eastbourne.
Walkers can enjoy a series of themed walks, ranging from Mindfulness and Wellbeing to the Archaeology of the Seven Sisters and even a Vintage Post Box walk!


With an anticipated increase in UK staycations for the remainder of the year, particularly those focused on getting out in the great outdoors, the Eastbourne Walking Festival will be a key driver for our town’s tourism industry.


Visitors can take comfort in the knowledge that Eastbourne’s accommodation providers, restaurants and services have worked incredibly hard implementing the necessary safety measures to successfully become Covid-ready, and what better place for a staycation than the UK’s sunniest town!”
To allow for social distancing, guided walks will have a limited capacity with walk leaders receiving additional training on leading walks safely to comply with current guidelines.
