With England in a national lockdown, the Government advice is to stay at home. Find information here on how to enjoy the National Park virtually, and how our services are operating during this time.

COVID-19 Info

We know news of a new national lockdown is not the way any of us would have liked to start 2021. The new restrictions permit you to exercise locally, once a day with your own household or with one other person (the Government advises “do not travel outside of your village, town or the part of a city where you live”).

Our absolute priority is the safety of all those who live in and visit the South Downs National Park. Thank you to everyone who has been following the Government guidance over the past several months by staying local, maintaining social distancing or even staying away until we return to better times.

If we are not your local green space, we promise to keep bringing the South Downs National Park to you.
