Have you ever gone hiking on the South Downs?

Have you ever gone hiking on the South Downs?

The South Downs National Park is one of 15 in the UK. You can walk the length of the Downs on the South Downs Way – a long distance footpath – but there are many, many other well signposted public footpaths and bridleways that you could explore too

The long distance South Downs Way runs within a mile of Steyning. Unusually this section of the path is by a river.

The Monarch's Way also runs close to Steyning – said to be used by King Charles 2nd in the 17th century, when he was escaping to France

The small town in the distance is Steyning in Southern England & the hills beyond are the South Downs – now part of the South Downs National Park.

This photo was taken after walking for just 20 minutes from Rosebud Cottage in Steyning. Walk further and you can join the South Downs Way – a national trail.

Reasons to visit Steyning, near Brighton

Its great location at the foot of the South Downs National Park!

You can enjoy fantastic scenery close by. There are many well sign posted footpaths leading on to the hills.

Chanctonbury Ring

In the photo you can see the South Downs Way and Chanctonbury Ring: This is a large Bronze Age hill-fort, with far ranging views from the north edge of the South Downs across the Weald to the North Downs. There are views of the sea to the south and lines of sight to other prehistoric landmarks. Ancient tracks, round barrows and cross-dykes surround the site. Well worth a visit & just a 3 mile walk from Steyning …
