The Village Inn, Buriton  is no more than a mile from the South Downs Way but be prepared for a steep climb to get back on the path!

Buriton is situated around 24 miles along the South Downs Way from Winchester, almost a quarter of the way to Eastbourne.

The South Downs Way was Britain’s first long distance bridleway. It stretches for 100 miles.

Experience some of the finest countryside between Winchester, the first capital of England, and the white chalk cliffs at Eastbourne. If you’re looking for attractive wildlife, visible prehistory, fine pubs and pretty villages, or if you just fancy a challenge, the 100 miles of the South Downs Way awaits you.

The Hangers Way is a 21-mile long-distance walking route that will take you from its start at Alton Railway Station, out into the lush Hampshire countryside, along a series of steep-sided wooded hills, known as “The Hangers”, through the pretty market town of Petersfield to finish at Queen Elizabeth Country Park, owned and managed by Hampshire County Council and the Forestry Commission. This is the largest of Hampshire’s parks and sits at the foot of the dramatic Butser Hill, the highest point of the chalky South Downs.
