Accessible Walks in Sussex

The wonderful countryside of Sussex should be available to everyone, so we’ve selected a few accessible walks in Sussex below, with paths suitable for wheelchairs, buggies and mobility vehicles.

Downs link path

Easy Access Trail at Seven Sisters – The route starts opposite the Seven Sisters Visitor Centre and the route is 2km long to get to the beach. Suitable for all. Postcode for Visitor Centre: BN25 4AD.

Chichester Canal – There is some parking at the car park near Hunston on the B2145 just before the village sign into Hunston and just before the Canoe Club. Head out of the car park towards the village sign and the canal path is on the right-hand side and you can walk along the canal till you reach the canal basin in Chichester.

Centurion Way – The Centurion Way is a 5.5 miles route that runs from Chichester through Lavant and finishes at West Dean. The path is flat and wide and suitable for all users. Visit the website for more information.

Pulborough Brooks – There are 5 accessible parking spaces here directly in front of the Visitor Centre. There is a Wetland Trail you can do here which is suitable for all and is suitable for manual wheelchairs with a strong helper. You can also book a motorised buggy.

Downs Link – The Downs Link is a 37-mile accessible path for all and stretches from Surrey down to Shoreham-by-Sea. Depending on which stretch you do depends on where you park, but there are disabled parking spaces at Southwater Country Park which is right next to the Downs Link. You can also park at West Grinstead at the disused railway station, which is now the Downs Link. Other areas to park are Steyning, Bramber and Shoreham-by-Sea.

Stanmer Park – Stanmer Park has recently undergone a number of changes to improve accessibility. These include a new off-road path leading into the village, signs to show routes around the park, additional disabled car parking spaces and more easy access trails and paths.

Wakehurst Place – Wakehurst has some parking spaces near the visitor centre for blue badge users. There are many gravel and other hand surface paths around Wakehurst, making it a good choice for a nice accessible route. You can also borrow mobility scooters from the entrance.

Parham House – There is a public footpath through Parham Park which is nice and accessible and well signposted. Deer and other animals are often wandering so dogs must be kept on leads and please stick to the footpath.
