The South Downs Way is one of 15 National Trails in England and Wales. It was the first bridleway National Trail in England and is the only National Trail to lie entirely within a National Park, running right through the heart of the South Downs National Park
Walking The South Downs Way offers the opportunity to experience some of the finest landscapes in Britain. You can enjoy exceptional views of the Isle of Wight and the Solent, the high heathlands of the Western Weald and Blackdown, the heavily wooded Weald of Sussex, and the receding ridges of the Chalk Downs themselves as well as the distant ridge of the North Downs. At the Eastern end of the trail you can enjoy the famous sea cliffs of the Seven Sisters and Beachy Head.
For nature lovers, The South Downs Way passes through an extraordinary range of diverse habitats including ancient woodlands, river valleys, chalk grassland, mixed farm land and coastal habitats.
