New Lipchis Way

The New Lipchis Way is a long distance footpath of 39 miles which runs from Liphook to East Head in Chichester Harbour. Going broadly north to south it offers a wonderful variety with sand heathland, chalk downland, old railway track, canal basin and harbourside environments in succession. 

Two Circular Walks From Walderton

Starting from Walderton, (about 7 miles north of Chichester, via Funtington). The longer walk is about 3 ½ miles in length, the second takes a shortcut and is less than 2 miles long. Both have an uphill stretch (on tarmac) at the start, the longer walk has another gentle uphill section.

Itchenor Circular Walk

A 3½ mile walk that includes shoreline, fields and paths, and a few stiles. The directions are quite complex, a good map is required!

Arundel to Amberley

A linear walk combined with public transport. This is a 5½ mile easy walk generally following the course of the River Arun but with woodland, villages and meadows taking you away from the riverbank at

The Chichester Tree Trail

The trail guides you past 30 spectacular trees all lying within or just outside the City Walls. Each one is identified by a number plaque, and a leaflet gives brief information about its age, country of origin and botanical features.

Stoughton Down, Up Marden, North Marden and East Marden

This is a 7 mile circular walk on which you will come across magnificent views and 3 ancient churches in idyllic rural settings – Up Marden, North Marden and East Marden.

The terrain is hilly with a variety of fields, woodland, open downland and quiet lanes.

Charlton and Goodwood – 7 miles

A slightly longer and more challenging one  – a 7 mile circular, with some steepish slopes. It takes in Levin Down, Goodwood racecourse, the Trundle and the delightful villages of Singleton and Charlton. On a clear day you will be rewarded with spectacular views across Chichester Harbour to the Isle of Wight. 

Halnaker Windmill

This is a very easy, straightforward walk of 1.5 miles, very suitable for small children!
