Out and About with your Dog

Sussex Dog Info

If you are a Sussex based dog business, why not consider advertising on our site?

Sussex Dog Info is a section especially for Sussex dogs and their owners as well as visitors to the area. Please contact me if you would like to add anything - dog classes, dog-friendly hotels, Sussex dog rescue centres. There is no charge.

This section is dedicated to all the dog lovers in Sussex, our little corner of England!

I hope you'll find new people and places through these pages, and if you're visiting Sussex with your dog, enjoy! Dog walking in Sussex is a joy, with gorgeous countryside that you and your dog will love :)

Take a look at my Dog Video page where I've filmed and posted some of the Brighton dog walks mentioned. You'll see how amazing they are!

Brigette would like to recommend Highdown Tea Rooms in Ferring, as a GREAT place where both you and your dogs are welcome. They have won the Open For Dogs award on a number of occasions.

Dogs are welcome both outside and inside (a rare luxury!), water and biscuits are provided. Wonderful homemade food on offer for us humans (especially the yummy cakes!). And, what's more, there are fabulous dog walks to be had just behind the tea rooms across Highdown.
(Thank you Brigette for this great info!)

Bluebird Cafe
East Preston (near Angmering) along Kingston Gorse Green (Private Estate) towards the Bluebird Cafe where dogs are allowed. So on a rainy day you are welcome inside. A lovely walk with beautiful scenery. When the tide is out you can also walk along the water.
Thank you Viola

Great Sussex Dog Walks

Until you know a walk very well, you may not want to let your dog off the lead. Always be prepared for what might be round the corner!

Brighton Dog Walks
A comprehensive section on dog walks in Brighton - we give you the inside info on what the city has to offer our canine chums.

Friston Forest
About 45 minutes outside of Brighton but well worth it! A beautiful area between Brighton and Eastbourne.

South Downs Way
Wide grassy or flinty tracks on chalk downland, mostly grazed by sheep on the hills with arable crops below. The western part of the downs is rolling farmland, the West Sussex Downs are dominated by a steep, often wooded scarp with views across the Weald below, while the East Sussex Downs are classic open grassland running down to the sea cliffs.

Ditchling Beacon
At 248 metres (814 feet) it is the third highest point along the South Downs. The views are fantastic and it's an amazing place for a walk. It does get busy however, especially in the summer, and watch out for the cows. Georgie discovered the fun of cow pats on this walk (you can probably imagine what happened!)

Devil's Dyke

North of Brighton, on the South Downs, West Sussex
An historic beauty spot on the South Downs Way, named after the huge dry valley that carves its way through ridges of rolling chalk grassland. This is a stunning walk that we've done many times.

Cissbury Ring
Set on a chalk promontory on the South Downs three miles north of Worthing, Cissbury Ring has great views across to Beachy Head and the west of the Isle of Wight.

Harting Down
Harting Down, just off the B2141, south of South Harting village, is one of the largest areas of ancient chalk downland owned by the National Trust.

Drovers Estate
The Drovers Estate near Singleton, Chichester, is part of a patchwork of agricultural land dominated by large stands of woodland.

Slindon Estate
The Slindon Estate, off the A29 near Arundel, consists of a large expanse of sweeping downland divided by dry valleys.

East Head
East Head near West Wittering, is a small but significant sand and shingle spit at the entrance to Chichester Harbour.
