Your walk starts at the village green in Alfriston (The Tye) where you will meet your guide. The 2-hour walk will take you up onto the downland overlooking the Rathfinny vineyard with excellent views towards the English Channel. You’ll follow the outline of the vineyard and then return to Alfriston village along the Cuckmere River. At the end of your walk you’ll be able to have refreshments and then be taken to a traditional Sussex pub for lunch with local produce and on to an award-winning vineyard for a ‘vine to wine’ tour and tasting of up to 4 wines from the vineyard. You’ll be able to ask lots of questions of the wine maker and be able to buy a bottle if you should wish to do so. You will then be returned to your starting point.
Please make sure you wear stout walking shoes or boots, no heels or flipflops! We also suggest you bring a small back pack with a waterproof jacket and a bottle of water. You may also like to bring a biscuit just to keep you going.
The walk starts with an initial uphill pathway onto the hills and then a mix of terrain.
