Now that we are able to travel a little further and enjoy the great outdoors with friends and family whilst remaining alert, take a look at the diverse range of places in which you can breathe in the fresh air and make the most of the great outdoors.

We encouage you to enjoy the countryside at every opportunity, it is so good for our well being. However, whilst you are out and about remember to follow the Countryside Code.  RESPECT - PROTECT - ENJOY. This code contains advice for the public and landowners, making it easier for visitors to help respect, protect and enjoy the outdoors. 

There are a great range of walks and places to cycle in South East England offering great ways to explore the region and beautiful places cars just can't get to. The region is also home to two national parks, providing plenty more to explore.

There are plenty of outdoor space for kids and even some great ideas for outside recreational activities.

  • Undercliff Walk - The Undercliff Walk runs from behind Asda in Brighton Marina to the Brighton & Hove City boundary at Saltdean marked by the last rock groyne. The path is just over 5 kms long. Both pedestrians and cyclists can use the Undercliff Walk.
  • Stanmer Park - Beautiful woodland walks and extensive open lands.
  • Brighton beach or take a look at the live webcam.
  • Preston Park  - Whether you want to take part in sports or sit and enjoy a picnic then Preston Park is the perfect place to go

There are stunning views along the chalk cliffs towards the Needles and glimpses of Poole Harbour and Studland in the distance and is home to a butterfly conservation project. There are 10 stunning outdoor National Trust locations to explore on the Isle of Wight.
  • Ventnor Botanic Gardens - Escape it all and enjoy the peace and quiet in the tranquil Ventnor Botanic Gardens, a 22-acre paradise with an impressive collection of rare, subtropical and exotic plants from around the world.   Walk down from the gardens to one of the Island’s hidden gems Steephill Cove.  Or take a stroll to the east along the sea wall to Bonchurch with its pretty cottages, village pond and Old St Boniface Church, which dates back to the 11th century. 
  • Quarr Abbey - Quarr Abbey is a Grade I listed building surrounded by beautiful grounds, walled gardens and woodland walks and a farm, which are kept and maintained by the Benedictine monks who live in Quarr. The grounds are free to enter and are perfect for blowing away the cobwebs and taking a gentle walk.
  • St Catherine’s Oratory - St Catherine’s Oratory, known locally at The Pepperpot, is a medieval lighthouse on St. Catherine’s Down overlooking the dramatic coastline of Chale Bay across the south of the Island.  The spot is a wonderful place for a peaceful walk or meditation, as the downs offer some of the most beautiful views on the Island.
