Best Walking Routes in The South Downs National Park

The South Downs National Park is home to some of the most spectacular and charming countryside in all of Britain, with 3,300km of walking routes covering everything from its iconic white cliffs to ancient woodlands and chalk downlands.

The South Downs offers something for walkers and hikers of all ages and abilities. The clifftop trails along the Seven Sisters cliffs to the beach at Birling Gap are popular with everyone from families to dog walkers, while the 100-mile South Downs Way National Trail is a superb challenge for hikers and mountain bikers.

The National Park is home to historic castles, stately homes and beautiful coastal towns; with champagne and wine trails, beach walks and river valleys to explore. The hills of the South Downs won’t test your stamina like Britain’s more mountainous National Parks, but the views and scenery will make sure you come back again and again.
