South Downs Ranger Experience

The South Downs Ranger Experience gives visitors a real-life glimpse into the work of a South Downs Ranger.

Working closely with local communities, farmers and landowners, the South Downs National Park Rangers play a pivotal role in conserving and enhancing the 1,600km2 of landscape, biodiversity, cultural heritage and the famous South Downs Way.

Step aboard a Land Rover to visit iconic sites, hear extraordinary stories and see conservation in action.

The day out begins with the most breathtaking view in the National Park – the Seven Sisters cliffs – taking in the majestic scene from Seaford Head Nature Reserve. This is then followed by a guided tour of Seven Sisters Country Park and a visit to the pretty medieval village of West Dean.

You will then enjoy a picnic overlooking Deep Dean – an amazing chalk grassland valley teeming with wildlife – before carrying out a butterfly survey and learning more about the rare species in the National Park such as the Adonis Blue Butterfly.

The day finishes with a visit to the famous Long Man of Wilmington, “the mysterious guardian” of the South Downs and an option of visiting the Long Man Brewery to see where they make award-winning beer using barley grown in the surrounding farmland.

Each experience departs at 10am from Seaford Station, East Sussex, returning to Seaford Station by 2.15pm.


Each tour has a maximum of four participants. Available dates are:

October 2019 – 12th & 18th
