I have done part of the South Downs Way walk twice now and never tire of the beautiful views. It's a pleasant 3 hour, 10 mile walk. Getting up to the downs and down again wasn't too taxing and the views from atop the downs...More

On a sunny day this is one of the most stunning places to be. Great walks and sweet air with great landscapes to view.

Great trip across the Downs. Very well signposted all the way. Views over the coast and inland were amazing from a number of points. Make sure to plan route and book accommodation as not much on the route itself so will have to drop down...More

This is a fantastic route for walking and cycling. Walked it all (98 miles) years ago in a 3-day weekend in pretty gloomy and foggy weather, as training for the Ten Tors challenge. I always had good memories despite the weather and the toughness of...More
