The official guide to this superb National Trail, published in conjunction with Walk Unlimited.

Whether you're an experienced long-distance walker or a weekend stroller, this is the only companion you need. The South Downs Way runs for 100 miles (160 km) over the chalk downland of Sussex and Hampshire, from Eastbourne to Winchester.

This route is rich with beautiful views across the rolling hills, including the stunning Seven Sisters, to the majestic South Downs, and the countryside surrounding them, designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty since 1966 and a national park since 2010.

One of only two National Trails that can be used not only by walkers but also by cyclists and horse-riders for its entire length, this is the complete official guide to walking, cycling or riding the well-loved and popular trail.
