Outdoor Adventure Girls – BIG WEEKEND #7 South Downs
DATE: 28 – 30 October 2022
LOCATION: South Downs
ACCOMMODATION: YHA South Downs
PRICE: £250 pp
TICKETS ON SALE: Monday 13 June 2022
The South Downs National Park is England’s newest national park. The national park is a beauty, with incredible coastline stretching for 140 kilometres from Winchester in the west to Eastbourne in the east through the counties of Hampshire, West Sussex and East Sussex.
The national park covers the chalk hills of the South Downs (which on the English Channel coast form the white cliffs of the Seven Sisters and Beachy Head) and a substantial part of a separate physiographic region, the western Weald, with its heavily wooded sandstone and clay hills and vales.
The South Downs Way spans the entire length of the park and is the only National Trail that lies wholly within a national park.
Please note that this is subject to change, but will give you an idea of what to expect.
A PDF itinerary will be sent to all booked guests one month before the event, with all details needed to attend the weekend.
There is also a WhatsApp chat for all attendees to plan car sharing and chatting before.

Our accommodation for the weekend is the stunning YHA South Downs.
Opened officially by HRH the Queen in 2013, YHA South Downs is a uniquely refurbished Sussex farmhouse in an enviable location right on the South Downs Way. Perfect for anyone wanting to walk in the rolling Sussex countryside, the hostel is surrounded by the hills of the South Downs National Park, and enjoys substantial grounds of its own.
The lively town of Brighton is just a 25-minute train journey away too, with Southease station literally on the hostel’s doorstep, meaning visitors can easily enjoy the best of both worlds.
Our accommodation for the trip will be in 4-bed and 6-bed dorms, exclusive to our group.
