After you have enjoyed the museum explore the friendly pubs, places to eat and specialist shops in this picturesque and historic village. You can get some inspiration from our Pinterest page.

Stroll to St Margaret’s Church, where many of the artists that you learn about in the museum (including Joseph Cribb, Edward Johnston and Hilary Pepler) are buried. In the churchyard you will also find examples of cut lettering by Joseph Cribb and Eric Gill.

Ditchling is the perfect place to enjoy the beautiful scenery of the UK’s newest national park. Ditchling Beacon is the highest point in East Sussex and offers commanding 360 degree views from its summit.

Walks from Ditchling Museum of Art + Craft
The museum is a great base for a country walk. Our favourite is a 3 mile circular walk from outside the museum, up Lodge Hill Lane to Oldland Mill and The Thatched Inn and returning to the village through open fields. Full details can be found on the Ditchling Parish website.

Village walk
