South Downs National Park

Covering an area over 1600 square kilometres, the South Downs National Park is the tenth National Park to be designated in England, offering an area of protected countryside that everyone can visit and enjoy. The famous South Downs Way, loved by walkers, cyclists and horse riders, stretches the entire 160 km length of the Park from Winchester in Hampshire to the white chalk cliffs of Beachy Head, near Eastbourne.

The Visit South Downs website has been produced to help you explore the South Downs and get the most out of your visit to this internationally important landscape. Why not Discover the South Downs with our interactive map? Whether you’re staying for a while or just visiting for the day – we have all the information you will need to plan your entire visit.

 

What to do, where to stay, where to eat

As well as helping you decide where to stay and places to eat and drink, we also have information on attractions and events within the South Downs. For those wanting to explore the outdoors we have trails for you to walk or cycle and for the more adventurous some great outdoor pursuits such as horse riding, ballooning, golf, hang gliding and paragliding. There are great Country Parks within the South Downs, ideal for a family day out. Why not visit theSeven Sisters Country Park in East Sussex or Queen Elizabeth Country Park in Hampshire.

 

How to get there

To help you get around the South Downs in a sustainable way check out the Take the Bus for a Walk campaign. It’s more than possible to get out to the ‘Downs on your Doorstep’ without a car – in fact it’s not only easy but surprisingly cheap. On ‘Breeze’ buses 77, 78 and 79 to Devil’s Dyke, Stanmer Park & Ditchling Beacon. These bus services only operate on Saturdays, Sundays and Public Holidays only. (See Brighton & Hove Transport).
