Explore Ravilious’ Sussex in more depth on a guided walk led by Andy Friend, curator of Ravilious & Co: The Pattern of Friendship , who has spent more than ten years painstakingly researching this fascinating artist’s life, work and his relationship with the places that he painted.

These exclusive small group events involve a full day of discussion and exploration of the countryside between Eastbourne and Lewes, visiting many of the places that are key to an understanding of Ravilious’ art.  

After an introductory talk at the gallery, participants will travel by coach on a fascinating tour taking in iconic locations such as Cuckmere Haven and Belle Tout and stopping and exploring key Ravilious hotspots including East Dean and Newhaven Harbour. The group will then enjoy a beautiful 3.5 mile country walk taking in Southease and Peggy Angus’s home Furlongs, the scene of many of Ravilious’ most beautiful and best known watercolours. After lunch at Firle, participants will return to Towner and enjoy exclusive late access to the exhibition.
