Gay Outdoor Club
The activity club for gay men and women and their friends


Welcome to the GOC Sussex page. We are a friendly active group and always welcome newcomers. Our walks cover the beautiful landscape around the south coast, South Downs and weald of Sussex.

We usually go out on the second Sunday of the month, including occasional forays with our neighbouring GOC groups.  We also host a summer weekend on the Isle of Wight each year.

Walks are normally 6 to 10 miles and designed to cover a range of abilities and tastes. We often bring our own packed lunches or stop for a pub lunch: see individual walks for details. Most afternoons end with fresh tea and coffee at the meeting point plus a range of delicious cakes supplied by our members.

If you're interested in joining us get in touch via the contact page or just come along to any of our advertised walks. Some people are nervous before their first walk but everyone is welcoming and you'll soon be at ease. Most people arrive by car; if you're coming by train and want collecting from a station just let us know and we can usually find someone happy to pick you up on the way. Several regular attendees already come down by train from London.

The Sussex Group Coordinator is Barry, with the communications and web admin looked after by Steve. To contact either of them by e-mail, phone or letter please use the contact page.
