To complement Constable and Brighton, our current major exhibition, In Constable’s Footsteps – Explorer Walk is a walk for residents and visitors to undertake in their own time. Pick up a free guide leaflet from Brighton Museum or download a PDF here In Constable’s Footsteps – Explorer Walk [PDF].

The circular sightseeing tour begins at Brighton Museum, is approximately 10 miles long and takes 3 to 4 hours. It explores the time the artist John Constable spent in Brighton and his walks onto the Downs during 1824-28. Hop on a bus to escape the city centre and walk through some of the green spaces that inspired him. Take in the landscape he captured and visit a historic church and two windmills on the way.

The walk extends the interpretation of Constable’s Brighton period explored in Constable and Brighton. Find out more about the Constable and Brighton exhibition.
