Brighton books: Walking and Tours

Cheeky Walks in Brighton & Sussex (Cheeky Guides)
Cheeky Walks in Brighton & Sussex (Cheeky Guides)

Twenty one unique themed journeys through town and country, with sights to see, canny commentary and a soupçon of silliness. If you've ever thought there must be more to this walking lark than wandering through fields, pointing and saying ''look, a tree!''; this book provides affirmation. Yes, it's good to get out in the fresh(ish) air but have you retraced the final steps of Lord Lucan or Virginia Woolf, been on a moonlit nightwalk or visited a lost village accompanied by a musical soundtrack? As well as these you can select from themes of death, sex, or art, take a labyrinthine tour of alleyways, play spot the ball at Brighton & Hove Albion's former grounds, or spend a mischievous afternoon messing about on our activity trail.
Along with some gorgeous scenery, you'll encounter such eccentric delights as:
A six foot prawn
A boat constructed from a Reliant Robin and a fire engine
Exploding graves
Rule breaking bungalows
Leo Sayer's autograph
There's even a website dedicated to keeping this book up to date, so when someone steals a stile at dead of night, you'll be the first to know.
