SOUTH DOWNS NATIONAL PARK
The South Downs is a beautiful place to explore at any time of the year, but there’s something really special about enjoying a walk in the countryside in the autumn and winter months, with misty mornings and the crunch of frosted fallen leaves under your feet. There’s plenty of space to walk, run and cycle safely in the great outdoors of the South Downs National Park while social distancing. Did you know the National Park has over 3,300km of rights of way?
