We are the Brighton and Hove group of the national Ramblers. Walking and socialising in and around the South East of England.


Weather forecast

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. Some walks have age guides (30s-50s) but anyone with the appropriate level of fitness is welcome on any walk.

Details of our walks are in our Public Walks Programme. If you're thinking about joining us, please see our About Us section.

We usually meet centrally in Brighton, for the 30s-50s walks on Sundays and Wednesday evenings usually at the south end of Preston Park, near to the Rose Garden (click here for map) and for the walks on Thursdays and Saturdays usually at the east side of Preston Park Station (click here for map) 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. This is on a first come first served basis and a lift cannot be guaranteed. (For the 30s-50s walks it would be helpful if you could also please visit our Meetup website and post a comment on the relevant walk if you are able to offer or would like a lift, including offers to car share from other locations).  Travel expenses are then divided equally between the driver and the passengers, with the rate currently being 30p per mile. Many of our Sunday walks and occasionally some of the other walks are accessible by bus or train from Brighton and do not require the use of cars. All walks with a public transport option can be found by going to our walks programme and checking the 'no car needed' box under the 'suitability' tab. Click on the title of the walk for precise information regarding the meeting and starting points.
