You can do short sections, along the route, and find much of interest. We did the whole trip over a week some years ago. Once on the ridge the walk is mainly level, the chalk is an unforgiving surface. Good well-fitting boots are a boon,...More

We have selected a number of day walks to complete the South Downs way. So far we have found it easy to follow the waymarkers and not got lost! Also use OS maps app which is really useful and well worth paying £25 per year.
