Our absolute priority remains the safety of our visitors as well as the 117,000 people living and working within the National Park.

Before travelling to the South Downs National Park, please read our latest guidelines on staying safe and exercising the “3 Rs” – Restraint, Responsibility and Respect


Green rolling pastures, wide open spaces, ancient woodlands, river valleys and dramatic coastline truly encompass the National Park’s ethos of being one of ‘Britain’s Breathing Spaces’. 

With over 3,300km of rights of way, the South Downs National Park offers a landscape as diverse as it is breath-taking.

This is truly a place with something for everyone, all easily accessible.
