Brighton and Hove Ramblers is a local walking and social group and is part of the national Ramblers.  We offer a range of walks each week and anyone with the appropriate level of fitness is welcome on any walk.

Details of our walks are in our Public Walks Programme.

We often meet centrally in Brighton, prior to the walks and share cars from there to the starting point of the walk.  

If you have a car we ask you to bring it. If you don't have your own transport then there may be space offered by other car owning members of the group.  Travel expenses are divided equally between the driver and the passengers. 

Some of the walks are accessible by bus or train from Brighton and do not require the use of cars. All walks can be found by going to our walks programme. Click on the title of the walk for precise information regarding the meeting and starting points.

If you're thinking about joining us and for more details please refer to the About Us page.

The People’s Postcode Lottery Climate Challenge programme

The Ramblers is delighted to be part of the People’s Postcode Lottery climate challenge programme.

Thanks to the generosity of players of People’s Postcode Lottery, we will be inspiring more people to discover the simple pleasures of walking and protect the places we all love to wander in nature.

Over the next 18 months as part of the People’s Postcode Lottery climate change programme, the Ramblers will be:

  • giving more people the confidence and knowledge to experience the joys of walking with new tried-and-tested routes
  • helping us better understand the public benefits of the walking environment.
  • making more walkers aware of the Ramblers and the important work we do to protect and expand the places we all love to walk

This programme of funding is part of our ongoing partnership with the People’s Postcode Lottery.

"I've made a lot of friends and become healthier through joining the Ramblers. Recently I've seen so many wildflowers, it's been amazing. I've seen a lot more wildlife too - it's exhilarating. Most of all, walking for me is all about the feeling of freedom" - Mary, Ramblers member.

Find out more about what the incredible impact that players’ support has had to helping more people discover the joy of walking.

Environment Bill back in Parliament

The Government’s Environment Bill, designed to replace some EU laws that no longer apply to the UK, moves to the House of Lords this week after clearing its House of Commons stages last month.

The Bill includes proposals to require legally binding targets and plans on biodiversity, air and water quality and waste reduction and allows the Government to set targets for people’s enjoyment of the natural environment. It also includes proposals for long-term Environmental Improvement Plans and would establish a new environmental watchdog, independent of government.

Despite these positive moves, the Bill represents a missed opportunity at this crucial point in setting the UK’s environmental priorities. The Ramblers are calling for the Bill to be amended to ensure it requires the government to improve people’s access to and enjoyment of nature. In particular, the Ramblers want to see the Bill amended to require the Government to set legally-binding, long-term targets to increase public access to, and enjoyment of, the natural environment. The Bill should also include steps to improve people’s enjoyment of the natural environment in the Government’s future Environmental Plans.

Stephen Russell, Policy and Advocacy Officer at the Ramblers, said: “The Covid-19 outbreak has highlighted just how important it is for everyone to have easy access to nature. Millions have benefitted from the simple, free, yet invaluable act of walking in green spaces close to their homes. However, the restrictions have also highlighted that for many people, this is simply not possible – easy access to nature is far from guaranteed.

“The Bill must be strengthened to require legally binding long-term targets and plans to increase people’s access to, and enjoyment of, the natural environment. It is not too late for the Government to show the leadership we desperately need and amend the Bill so that everyone, everywhere can enjoy walking in nature.”

Write to your MP today and help ensure everyone, everywhere can walk in nature.
