Healthy Walks


Many areas in West Sussex have a programme of walks for people of all abilities. Horsham District Council coordinate a Wellbeing Walks programme for the Horsham district which you can find on the Horsham District Council website.

If you would prefer to walk on your own, there are 15 self-guided walks on the Horsham District Council website (new window).

Walking is a great way to be active. There are so many places to walk across West Sussex, from the flat promenades of the coastal towns to the more challenging ups and downs of the South Downs National Park (new window). It’s a low-cost exercise which everyone can enjoy … just find yourself some appropriate footwear. If you are in the Steyning area, the Visit Steyning website has lots of information on local walks.

The Walking for Health website (new window) has more helpful information on walking, including a local 'Walk Finder'.

The Sussex Wildlife Trust (new window) is responsible for many volunteer programmes which operate in the county.  Their website has details of these schemes, which include regular activities in local parks.
