Find the best Eastbourne walks. The Ramblers Association now have a greatly improved website which is an exceptional resource for all walkers, hikers and young families wanting to go for walks with young children. This site lists everything from historical walks to leader led walks to any really arduous walks within the Nirvana Hotel area.

Find A Walk Near Me by using Walking Britain is a truly excellent and free resource. Just enter where you are or where you would like to walk - and print out directions. The walks are graded and you can buy a specific map of the area at the same time. These are proper OS maps and weather proofed if required.

I always think of walking as one of the few activities you can do for free - and now you can with this guide!

Walking, Hiking and Outdoor Shops


147 149 Terminus Rd, Eastbourne BN21 3NU, UK – 01323 401041

Often found Black's to be a mixed bag with service but on this occasion the service that I received was fantastic. Pretty sure it was the store manager that was serving me at the time. She took her time and discussed all my needs and the features of each shoe. Friendly, professional and relaxed in nature.

Thanks to the great staff, especially the manager for some excellent customer service.


146/148 Terminus Rd, Eastbourne BN21 3AN, UK – 01323 409340

Staff extremely helpful, brilliant selection of camping and hiking gear alike. All at a very resonable price too!

Camping and Caravaning

Fairfields Farm

39 Eastbourne Rd, Westham, Pevensey BN24 5NG, UK – 01323 763165

We were really happy with this campsite. We needed an easy and safe family environment as it was our first camping trip with our toddler. Fairfields Farm Campsite was exactly that. You can keep your car on your pitch which we found really convenient. The grown-ups were happy with the cleanliness of the showers and loos, and our toddler loved the farm animals who seemed very happy and well-kept. The only reason I have given four and not five stars is because of the lack of local produce in the shop. I'd love to see them sell local farm eggs, free-range organic meats, local ciders and salads from nearby Hankham Organics the next time we go!

Fabulous site, clean toilets and showers. Lots of farm animals around the site/farm all well looked after. Lovely little fishing lake. Would come back and recommend highly. 10/10

Snake bites

Most snake bites in the UK are not serious. But it's important to get all snake bites checked as soon as possible.

Call 999 or go to A&E immediately if:

  • you think you, or someone else, has been bitten by a snake

Find your nearest A&E


If you're not in the UK when you are bitten by a snake, contact the emergency medical services in the country you're in.

What to do while you're waiting for help


  • stay calm, most snake bites in the UK are not serious and can be treated

  • keep the part of your body that was bitten as still as you can

  • lie in the recovery position if you can

  • take paracetamol for any pain

  • try to remember the colour and pattern of the snake to tell the doctor

  • take off any jewellery and loosen clothes near the bite, in case it swells


  • do not go near the snake, or try to catch or kill it

  • do not try to suck or cut the poison (venom) out of the bite

  • do not tie anything tightly round the part of the body where the bite is

  • do not take aspirin or ibuprofen, as they can make bleeding worse

What happens at the hospital

You will usually need to stay in hospital for at least 24 hours if you have been bitten by a snake.

The bite will be cleaned and bandaged. You may be given an injection to help protect you from tetanus.

If you were bitten by a poisonous (venomous) snake you will be treated with a medicine to fight the venom. This is given through a thin tube into a vein, called a drip.

Types of UK snake

Only 3 types of snake are found in the wild in the UK.

The adder is the only venomous snake, but you should get all snake bites checked as soon as possible.

Telling the doctors the colour and pattern of the snake that bit you could help them treat it.
