Fantastic panorama, with few people, peace and quiet, well way-marked. Access needs planning and places to park difficult to find.

What more can you say really great walks and you can do it all or in parts. Really good views from High down across the English Channel.

Brilliant views of Sussex, and the English Channel. The South Downs are definitely worth a visit if you are in the areas of Brighton/Eastbourne.

Great way to enjoy a long distance walk. The path is well signposted and is relatively easy walking. Great views over beautiful countryside.

I live in the South Downs National Park so I am biased. Walking or cycling, it's wonderful. The views are spectacular! You need to be fit if you intend to journey from Eastbourne to Winchester, but just try a small section. It's endlessly beautiful

It's hard to say which is the best walk on the SDW, I did the whole thing a couple of years ago stopping overnight in local pubs. Def the best way to do it and the bonus is a warm bed and the local tipple of your choice each evening. If you can't do the whole walk then the Seven... More

The views and walks are the best I have ever experienced. Absolutely not to be missed. Park and walk in any direction and find easy civilised paths.
