Why not join the 20,000 other long distance trail users last year and embark on a journey along the South Downs Way. From the ancient city of Winchester to the white cliffs of Eastbourne the trail is 100miles long and has a total ascent of 3,800m/12,600ft (that is three and a half times the height of Mount Snowdon). This route takes you straight through the heart of the South Downs offering inspiring views where ever you stop and hidden gems along the way. Explore the rolling hills, the glorious heathland, the river valleys, ancient woodland, listed buildings, diverse archaeology, thriving villages and market towns. Take your bike, your horse or travel on foot, and why not try it from Eastbourne to Winchester.
Follow the acorn along your journey to find your way and look for signposts to show the public rights of way. The trail has some moderately steep sections that should be suitable for anyone who is reasonably fit. If you have any questions regarding accessibility visit the National Trail site.
