The South Downs
The South Downs are a range of chalk hills that extends for about 260 square miles across the south-eastern coastal counties of England from the Itchen Valley of Hampshire in the west to Beachy Head, near Eastbourne, East Sussex, in the east. It is bounded on its northern side by a steep escarpment, from whose crest there are extensive views northwards across the Weald. The South Downs National Park forms a much larger area than the chalk range of the South Downs and includes large parts of the Weald.

If you are looking for somewhere peaceful and secluded, there’s over 80km of coast to explore, from the sheltered bays around Chichester to the white cliffs of the Seven Sisters and Beachy Head and the golden sands of Camber. Sussex has miles of spectacular and award wining coastline.
Children and parents will love the family-friendly beaches and resorts of Worthing, Bognor Regis, Littlehampton and Eastbourne, perfect for pottering in the shallows, relaxing in a deckchair and strolling along the prom and piers.
