We walked along the South Downs Way by parking at Bignor Hill (National Trust) and then following the monarchs way down to Amberley Station. This enabled us to follow the South Downs way back up to Bignor Hill. We enjoyed some expansive views of the...More

The best walk in the South East. When the sun is shining these chalk escarpments are stunning. You don’t have to walk far to get away from the crowds.

I have been lucky enough to be able to get up onto the SDW more or less every week for the last 25 years. The skyline has changed slightly but not massively. The windmills out at sea are probably the biggest intervention although the power...More

As part of the south downs way it is a stunning walk, you are likely to see rabbits, different types of butterfly, I usually see the small heath and the chalkhill blue, lots of hedgerow birds and you occasionally see birds of prey! Just don't...More

Walked this following a cancelled endurance event. I walked 60ish km from queens country park to the Botolphs (spelling?). It's gorgeous and the views and worth the walk. It's rocky terrain so make sure you come prepared with padded shoes and stuff for blisters.

What a cracking trail. Far more ups and downs than I expected and with several tight turns it was always interesting. We cycled from Steyning to Lewes, about 40 miles return and found the views into the countryside or across towards the sea wonderful. There...More

Assuming you're after how long each day's walk will be, it's hard to say without knowing your fitness level. If you walk distance regularly and are reasonably fit then 3 miles an hour would be about average which means 8 - 9... More

Assuming you're talking about the full SDW then depending on where you get the info from it's between 100 and 109 miles. Some people mountain bike it in a day but unless you're super human I can't see you walking it in that... More
