If you look from the top of the South Downs, your view will be filled with fields in most directions. 85 per cent of the South Downs is farmland of one kind or another.

There are cattle grazing, orchards, vineyards and fields of wheat. This is a place full of things to eat and drink.

You can visit the South Downs Food and Drink Portal to find a wealth of tasty produce from across the National Park.

The site includes over 200 businesses, including farmers markets, farm shops, food festivals and places to enjoy quality local produce.


" The Downs...too much for one pair of eyes, enough to float a whole population in happiness. "
