The green rolling pastures, wide open spaces, ancient woodlands and river valleys of the National Park offer a landscape as diverse as it is breath-taking.
Immerse yourself in all the National Park has to offer – from star-studded skies to wine tasting at a vineyard on the south-facing slopes; from a geocaching `treasure hunt` to a family cycle on a converted railway line; from tasting local food and drink in a country pub, to stopping off for afternoon tea in a picturesque village.
Perhaps best of all is a hike or ride on the South Downs Way National Trail for stunning scenery, the freshest air, and popular landmarks – and if you are taking on the challenge of the 100 mile trail stop off in West Sussex to rest a while!
Get inspiration for things to do, places to stay and experiences to remember in the South Downs National Park with the help of our local guides.
