Eastbourne Walking Festival

About

Eastbourne Walking Festival is a ten day celebration of the great outdoors. The event acts as a springboard to promoting the health and wellbeing benefits of discovering walking as a way of life. This event is carefully curated to provide something for everyone despite your age or mobility and is designed to introduce and inspire visitors and residents of Eastbourne to the incredible trails, paths, and stories of discovery throughout this Victorian town that is nestled right at the gateway to the South Downs National Park. The Walking Festival pulls together knowledgeable volunteers and industry experts to put on a programme of walks and talks and is supported by numerous fringe events that complement the ten day offering. The festival aims to promote engagement in appreciation and conservation of the natural world from plant life, animal life and marine whilst improving the health and wellbeing of participants in the short term and the long.

The special offering of the 2020 Walking Festival is an event that allow participants the opportunities to #reconnect after weeks of self-isolation throughout the Covid-19 pandemic. #Reconnect with your walking boots, soak in the Vitamin D on the sunshine coast and breathe in the fresh seafront air. #Reconnect with friends and family, and make up for lost time.
