The undercliff walk is flat and offers beautiful views of the white chalk cliffs....

The route crosses the A23 at a crossing to enter Patcham, an area I'd not actually explored before, but it's a pleasant neighbourhood with places shop, stop and eat. Leaving Patcham, the route follows the A23 briefly before a diversion around Withdean as far as Preston Park Railway Station. The final section to the station is via the New England area of Brighton, a nicer way to enter than the Preston Circus end of London Road....

At this point the route ramps up to the cliff top to pass above the Marina complex, then follows the top of the cliffs for about three miles past Rottingdean to Saltdean. The path as far as Rottingdean is alongside the busy South Coast Road passing Roedean School, the Blind Veterans rehabilitation centre and Rottingdean windmill....

Pyecombe sits at the conjunction of two main roads from London to Brighton. Note: be careful of traffic walking under the railway bridge at the bottom of Mill Hill, Patcham. From here on into Brighton, the route runs parallel to the London Road, crossing back and forth periodically as it aims to pick up quieter paths. At the end of the route, following Debora’s advice (previous reviewer), I picked up the Brighton Greenway to arrive at Brighton Station....

Once past the end of the harbour, the route changes to seaside promenade for about two or three miles to Brighton Pier. From just before the Pier the path heads up East Street then goes through the Pavilion Gardens, then along Gloucester Place to Trafalgar Street and up to the Railway Station. It is also flat all the way until the final climb up Trafalgar Street to the station....

Walked as part of a longer walk to Lewes - so if you are doing the same then instead of going into Woodingdean itself, return to Warren Road before the end of the racecourse, and take the Drove Road where you will eventually join up with the Slow Way from Woodingdean to Lewes...

There is a steep climb once out of the city, to the summit of the Downs near Mill Hill, and similarly a steep slope down, following the South Downs Way, to the village of Pyecombe at the end - I don't think there are any ways to get north out of Brighton without having to tackle the Downs!...
