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


The South Downs National Park is easily accessible by all forms of transport. If visiting, we would love it if you could come by public transport.

Not only will you be helping to conserve the landscape but, you can also relax and soak up the views. 

The South Downs’ proximity to London and the South Coast make it extremely easy to get reach.

Regular trains from Waterloo and Victoria take between 60–90 minutes to get to stations such as Winchester and Lewes which are gateways to the National Park.

Catch a train in to the heart of the South Downs and start a walk directly from Amberley in the Arun Valley, Southease in the Ouse Valley or Liss in Hampshire.

The National Park also has excellent bus services and with a South Downs Discovery Ticket you can explore the entirety of the South Downs National Park by bus with just one ticket.
