The Sussex Border Path is a long-distance footpath in southern England that connects Thorney Island[1] to Rye.[2] The main path is 222 km (138 mi) long, with an additional 33 mi (53 km) spur known as the Mid Sussex Path which links Weir Wood Reservoir with Mile Oak in the city of Brighton and Hove.

The eastern half of the route is shown in outline.

The footpath uses existing rights of way to follow the Sussex county border and is waymarked.
