WHERE DO WE STAY
There is no accommodation provided along the South Downs Way during this event; with nearly 200 people taking part that simply would not be possible. Most local people will return home at the end of each day to family or friends. Those coming from further afield will find accommodation for the full nine days near one of the pick-up points - usually Chichester or Arundel. For some suggestions click here.
Luxury coaches are provided to pick up from selected points along the South Coast each morning - WORTHING, ARUNDEL, CHICHESTER & SHOREHAM - and take everyone to and from the next section of the trail each day. The coaches leave at different times each morning usually between 8am and 9:30am. In the afternoon the coaches will depart at roughly 45 minute intervals to return to all the pick-up points; so there should not be too long to wait for a coach home.
Best friends are welcome on the Annual Walk but we are limited to just 3 dogs on each outbound coach and some of the passes have now been taken. If you want to bring your best friend you need to book as soon as possible.
