Whether you're a serious hiker, leisure walker, seeking an active family holiday or just wanting to get away from it all, the comprehensive range of self-led or guided walking holidays and tour operators based in South East England can offer something for everyone.

South East England’s beautiful and diverse landscape can take you from spectacular stretches of coastline through lush green rolling countryside to timeless villages and historical cities. Discover for yourself the New Forest ponies, charming Oxfordshire Cotswold villages, how far the South Down’s Way stretches and the vineyards of Kent.

It traverses some of the best scenery in southern England, including the North Downs, The Weald, Ashdown Forest and South Downs National Park, finishing along a spectacular stretch of the Sussex Heritage Coast.  Visit the Vanguard Way website for information about the walk and you will find useful route description sections that includes a commentary on the places of interest that you pass by.
