Walking the South Downs with Sherlock Holmes
May 6, 2017 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
In 1903 , the greatest fictional detective ever retired to East Dean on the South Downs to be a beekeeper. Arthur Conan Doyle lived near here and used the area as inspiration for one of Holmes' last adventures .
Join a walk to see the house he (probably) retired to and take a walk along the cliffs while listening to the case of "The Lion's Mane" , which is played out along this rocky coast.
This will be a three mile walk up and down these spectacular cliffs, with a trip to the pub at the end of it, so be prepared for walking, drinking and enjoying the sunshine.
