South Downs Way Walking Guide

One of 12 national trails, the South Downs Way stretches for some 100 miles (162 kms) between Eastbourne in Sussex and Winchester in Hampshire. The route is predominately over chalk grassland and is set within two Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. With its 4 river valleys, fabulous views, few major roads there is a real feeling of "getting away from it all" despite being set within the built-up South East of England.
