We have some of Britain’s most spectacular countryside on our doorstep, and it’s waiting to be explored. That’s why, in collaboration with The Ramblers Association South West Sussex Group, we’re organising the first ever Chichester Waking Weekend.   

Covering the magnificence of the South Downs National Park, stunning stretches of coastline, the natural beauty of Chichester Harbour and, of course, the historic Roman City of Chichester itself, our jam-packed programme of guided walking events offers something for all ages and abilities, there’s even a ‘wheel, walk and stroll’ for those less mobile. Many events are free of charge, but registration in advance is essential.
