Top walks in and around West Sussex

Find a place near you to make the most of the Sussex countryside this winter. Here are our top walks from all around the county from the Devil's Dyke to Harting Down, Petworth Park to Slindon.

We all need a break from the box sets, so why not blow away the cobwebs and get out into the countryside. Pull on a warm jacket and wellies and bribe, blackmail or berate your household as necessary. You know it will be worth it once you're all out jostling and chatting and huffing clouds of laughter into the chilly air. Alternatively, a solitary walk can be a peaceful balm at a busy time. However you get there, enjoy the outdoors at our places in the South East this holiday season.

Every time you visit, your membership or parking contribution helps us look after these beautiful places for everyone, for ever.

Visiting information for this winter 

In England and Northern Ireland, our gardens, parks and countryside remain open for local people to exercise. Shops, houses and other indoor areas are closed, and cafés are takeaway only. The safety of our staff, volunteers and visitors from the nearby community remains our priority and we urge you to book your visits in advance and stay local. All places in Wales are currently closed. Please check the property webpage before you travel.
