Walks at Uppark

Visitors in the garden at Uppark House and Garden, West Sussex

At this time of year, there's a palette of colours waiting to be discovered across Uppark's far-reaching landscape. We have several walks to choose from with maps and guidance available from our friendly team at Visitor Reception.

Woodland walk

Run through piles of leaves or spend time making a den while on our Woodland walk. The route starts by Visitor Reception and takes in several viewpoints on the way. It should take around 40 minutes or so, and is steep in places.

Meadow walk

For something a little less strenuous, try our Meadow walk. Starting from the entrance to the house, it leads in front of the Dairy before following the edge of the meadow, offering views out to sea and as far as the Isle of Wight on a clear day.

Dog walking 

There's no need to leave your four-legged friends behind, as dogs on leads are welcome on our walks. There are waste bins and water bowls by the café and visitor reception, too.

Visiting Uppark with your dog

There's no need to leave your four-legged friends behind, as well-behaved dogs on short leads are welcome in most of our outdoors areas.

Ready for more?

If you're ready for something a little longer, how about the wildlife trail at nearby Harting Down? Although not accessible from Uppark directly, parking is available at the trail head.
