Regular tours of Earthship Brighton
If you would like to attend one of our regular tours then just turn up on the lawns in front of Stanmer House on one of the dates on the tour schedule - please check the tour times carefully as they can vary. No booking is required. Stanmer House is the large mansion house situated on the left just before you come to the T-junction in Stanmer village. Stanmer Park can be reached by bicycle, train, bus or car; we encourage people to cycle or use public transport.
After meeting the guide there is a short 10 minute walk through Stanmer Park and Stanmer Organics to reach Earthship Brighton. The walk is through the countryside and some paths can be muddy - please wear suitable shoes. If you would like to visit, but have a mobility issue, please let us know in advance and we can arrange for you to access the site by car.
For the Earthship Brighton project, the Low Carbon Trust was the National Gold Winner in the New Build Tourism category of the Green Apple Awards 2007 for the Built Environment and Architectural Heritage.
