Get to Know the South Downs with our Free Health Walks
How would you like to explore more of your local area without having to pay a thing? With our range of free, gentle, guided walks, you can really get to know the South Downs on your doorstep. Wave has partnered up with The South Downs National Park to put together a range of totally free walks into the South Downs from Peacehaven, Newhaven and Seaford. Everyone’s invited to enjoy a revitalising walk and explore the natural beauty of our local area, all without spending a single penny!
Enjoy the stunning natural panorama of The South Downs.
While you enjoy your free guided walk, you'll see a range of health benefits. Walking is great for improving your mobility and cardiovascular fitness, meaning you can walk even longer and climb even higher. However, it's not just your heart that will be getting a workout whilst walking but your mind too. Just five minutes of being in nature is proven to boost your mood by releasing feel-good hormones known as endorphins. Endorphins help reduce stress and anxiety and increase feelings of self-confidence. The positive effects of walking on your mind and mood have been affectionately dubbed ‘green care’, and by the end of each walk you’ll be able to see why!
Good company and amazing views. Just some of the benefits of our Health Walks and Rural Rambles.
From 31st July to 9th November you can join any of the following walks for free. Health Walks take 1-1½ hours and Rural Rambles take 2-3 hours. Children are welcome to join when accompanied by a parent or guardian. Please remember to bring water and to wear appropriate shoes and clothing for walking on uneven paths and being outside.
