We’ve put together a list of the best Sussex things to do outdoors and Sussex Outdoor Activities. Group Outdoor Activities and Adventure Activities across East Sussex and West Sussex.
Sussex has an abundance of outdoor activities, organised or self-led, action packed or more laid back, perfect for groups of all sizes. Get your adrenaline pumping with a day at Southern Pursuits or take in the stunning views on a leisurely Undercliff Walk. There really is something fro everyone!
Founded in 1959 and still steaming! Bluebell Railway runs steam trains between Sheffield Park and East Grinstead. Explore the museum, hop on board (first class with an afternoon tea if you’re feeling fancy!) and steam through the Sussex countryside in style. Fun for all the family.
Coastal path from Brighton to Telscombe Cliffs perfect for cycling and all levels of walking ability.Take in the stunning views, amble around Rottingdean or simply treat yourself to an ice cream at one of the seaside cafés along the way. There’s rock pools to explore at low tide, and at high tide – watch the waves!
The only classic circuit in the world to remain entirely in its original form. The circuit now hosts many exciting events throughout the year including driving experiences in classic and sports cars and Track Days. A really unique day out for any petrol head.
Southern Pursuits activities include: quad biking, off road karting, clay shooting, archery, axe throwing, go-cart driving and team building. Whether you have to arrange a stag or hen do, corporate event or just want a fun day out – Southern Pursuits is the place for you!
Cruise along the canal linking historic Chichester with the sea on a boat trip that runs four times a day or hire a row boat for a more leisurely afternoon. Take a summer Friday night sundown trip or a fish and chips cruise for retreat from the beautiful city of Chichester.
Book a one of a kind falconry experience in the grounds of Herstmonceux Castle. A full or half day of meeting the incredible birds, learning about how they live and flying them multiple times. We don’t think there’s a better way to spend an afternoon!
Join a vehicle-based safari or guided walking tour and experience a profusion of birds, cattle, pigs, deer, beetles, reptiles, plants and fungi in a setting that feels as wild and dynamic as the African bush. Check the safari time table for the species you can expect to be in search of at this time of year!
Meet alpacas and learn how they live before taking a walk with them on an alpaca and wildlife safari in an area of outstanding natural beauty. After your walk, you can then reward your walking partner with carrots and then depending on the season meet the mum and baby group of alpacas and spend time with them – how cute! Definitely one of the Sussex outdoor activities not to be missed!
A real tree top Adventure! Get your adrenaline pumping and explore the high ropes testing your nerves at one of our favourite Sussex outdoor activities! Great fun for small or larger groups with zip wires, and swings up to 30 metres up in the air. There’s also a course for younger adrenaline junkies but they must be accompanied by an adult.
The epitome of Sussex outdoor activities, Watersports centre offering wake boarding, sailing, windsurfing, Kayaking and Stand-up Paddle boarding on the Lagoon and the sea. Book private lessons or group sessions with all ages and abilities catered for and a whole lot of fun. There is also a play area and paddling pool for little ones in the summer as the Big Beach Café.
