Enjoy the beautiful scenery of the South Downs National Park with a choice of routes around Midhurst, Easebourne, and Woolbeding.

Choose to explore the River Rother Walk (2.8 miles), the Cowdray Ruins and St Ann’s Hill (1.1 miles) or Woolbeding & Easebourne (10 miles).

These routes all begin in Midhurst town centre, where you will find the South Downs National Park Visitor Centre which is home to an exhibition about the National Park, a small gift shop and local visitor information with more details on local walking routes. There is plenty of car parking space in Midhurst, at North Street and The Grange.

Highlights to look out for during your walks:

  • The River Rother is home to many species of wildflowers and wildlife which change with the seasons. You may be lucky enough to spot a Kingfisher or Grey Wagtail, or in summer months, dragonflies
  • The magnificent Cowdray Ruins – once visited by Henry VIII and Elizabeth I
  • Woolbeding Bridge – the bridge dates back to the early Medieval period
  • Herdwick Sheep and Sussex or Galloway Cattle grazing the fields around Woolbeding
  • The National Trust’s Woolbeding Gardens – open during the summer months for pre-booked visits (a minibus collects ticket holders from The Grange Centre Car Park in Midhurst due to limited parking at the site)
