Where to find us and what to do in the park

You’ll find our takeaway kiosk in Stanmer Park by the Upper Lodges entrance to the park. There is plenty of pay and display parking, and public toilets at the entrance for your convenience. Right at the entrance to the park, you’ll find the newly renovated childrens play park, with a gravel pathway that leads you up through the park.

It’s a lovely 20 minute walk from Circa in the Park to Stanmer Village, there’s a new pathway which will take you there directly with benches dotted along the route for stop offs with a Circa Brownie. Or you can go off piste and explore the woods!

If you’d rather take in Stanmer’s beautiful scenery on wheels instead of foot, you can now hire top of the range bikes from Circa in the Park courtesy of our kiosk neighbours  Brighton Bike Hire. With a selection of mountain bikes to suit all abilities and ages, the whole family will love an afternoon exploring the Stanmer Park trails by bike. It’s easy peasy to book a bike online, just click the link above, pick your date and time, and off you go!  And remember to stock up with refreshments before your ride!

There are all sorts of ways to reach us in Stanmer Park, you can come by train, with Falmer Station being just a few stops from Brighton followed by just a 10 minute walk. If you’re coming by car turn off from Ditchling Road and Stony Mere Way, off Lewes Road.  Throughout the year,  ‘Breeze’ buses link the city with some of the most popular countryside destinations within the South Downs National Park and this includes Stanmer Park. You can also reach the park with the buses 25, 78 and 79 from Brighton. 

We look forward to welcoming you to Circa in the Park! 

Welcome to Circa in the Park

Our lovely takeaway kiosk in Stanmer Park is open everyday of the week, come rain or shine, dishing up delicious food and drink to take away, including teas, Pharmacie Roasters’ coffee, a wide selection of soft drinks such as organic Ginger Beers and Kombuchas. Our takeaway kiosk in Stanmer Park has lots of savoury and sweet treats to enjoy on the lush lawns in front of the cafe or to take with you for a walk in the woods!

All our Circa-made savoury lunches and snacks are baked fresh in our kitchen up the hill at Bevendean Farm and delivered daily. The menu features classics such as our Old School Sausage Rolls, Veggie Pastries, Focaccia Pizzas and selection of sourdough toasties. We try and source our ingredients locally where we can – our focaccia and sourdough is freshly baked from The Flourpot Bakery, and our Cheese is sourced from the Cheeseman, and features locally sourced delights such as Golden Cross Goats cheese

Up with the sparrows? We also have a selection of breakfast English muffins,  tasty filled croissants and fresh salad bowl specials, so you’ll often find something new to try on the menu. 

For something sweet, treat yourself to one of our freshly baked Cherry Bakewells, Chocolate Tiffins or other yummy traybakes by Lady of the Cake, a scoop or two of artisan Italian ice cream by Boho Gelato or one of our 100% sugar free and naturally delicious Lickalix ice lollies. All of these suppliers are based locally too!

We cater for most dietaries too, offering a choice of non dairy milk alternatives, vegan flapjacks, veggie specials, gluten free brownies and vegan gelato. 

With many of our visitors being of the canine kind at Circa in the Park, it’s important we have treats for them too, and stock Frozzies frozen yoghurts to keep them cool. You’ll always find a bowl of water next to the cafe hatch too and a warm welcome from the team. We usually stock a selection of doggie treats and poo bags, should you need them on the fly!

We also have a deli cafe in Woodingdean, serving the same treats, but this time for sit in! With an outdoor terrace and seating inside, its a lovely cosy spot for a treat and a hot drink, come rain or shine.
