    The South Downs Way Annual walk

    This is an organised nine day walk along the full 100 mile length of the South Downs Way, one of England's finest national trails. It will take place from 7th to 15th June 2019. For the past 39 years it has been enjoyed every June by hundreds of people from all over the world. It is, by tradition, a supported rather than a guided walk, with everyone free to walk at their own pace each day. However, our team of experienced leaders walk the South Downs Way with you and you can rest assured that there will always be knowledgeable people nearby to help you with directions, first aid or just a friendly smile.
