    Arundel to Amberley

    Saturday 13th May

    Distance 11.7 miles, Linear Grade Moderate Start Time 11:05 Host Holly

    Meeting point: Starting at Arundel Station and finishes at Amberley Station.


Starting by walking though Arundel's old town to the Duke of Norfolk's castle before entering Arundel Park. We shall take in views over the parkland as we walk across and down to the River Arun. The walk will then take us though the hamlet of South Stoke and along the river to the village of Burpham.


After a late packed lunch on the village green with views back to Arundel and a stop in the pub for a drink, we start the afternoon with a climb up to the South Downs, before arriving in the pretty village of Amberley where we join the River Arun again back to the station.

About our walks

Non-members are welcome to join us for 3 "trial" walks before deciding to join us. You don't need to book in advance - just turn up on the day.

All our walks are graded to give you an idea of what each one will be like. If you're unsure of your fitness level, try a short, easy walk first. It's better to find a walk too easy than to make yourself miserable and exhausted.

Please remember

  • Bring appropriate clothing and footwear for the weather conditions.
  • Bring something to drink, even if the walk has a pub stop. On most full day walks you'll need to bring a picnic lunch. The walk details will show this.
  • If you wish to bring your dog on a walk, you must ask the walk leader in advance as some walks are not suitable for dogs.
  • Please arrive early so that the walk can start on time. We'll wait up to 10 minutes if you let us know you've been delayed en-route.

All our walks are led by SYW members. Please follow their instructions, don't walk ahead of them, and let them know if you decide to leave the walk before the end.
