Romantic walks for Valentine's Day

Walkers in Leechpool Woods

Sweeping landscapes, beautiful vistas and maybe even a striking sunset. If you’re looking for some romantic inspiration for Valentine’s Day, have a look at our suggested walks.

Country cuddles

If you fancy an amble this Valentines, the stunning countryside in the district offers plenty of enjoyable routes. Why not pick up a walk around Rudgwick in the north west of the area?

The Rudgwick Preservation Society have a wealth of suggested walks you could enjoy with your loved one, including one which starts at The Kings Head, a traditional village pub in Rudgwick, full of warm and cosy corners to snuggle up in.

Going the distance

What could be more romantic than donning your warmest of clothing and striding out along the South Downs Way hand in hand? The combination of stunning views and vast landscape will have you quoting romantic poetry before the day is over.

This beautiful walk stretches from the ancient cathedral city of Winchester, across into Amberley and Washington in the Horsham District and ends at Beachy Head in Eastbourne.

It’s unlikely you’ll want to take in the whole walk in one go (it stretches for 160km), so when making a day of it in the Horsham District, aim for a stop in Amberley where you can enjoy a beautiful view from the Riverside Café and Bar as well as a delicious sparkling afternoon tea.

Town tottering

Don’t fancy getting your feet muddy but want a beautiful place to take a wander? Lose yourselves in a walk around Steyning. The high street hosts a wealth of independent retailers , so whether it’s getting inked at The Inkwell or choosing something for your home at Steyning Antiques you’ll have no problem whiling away the hours together.

When you’re hungry from all that hard work, pop in to Cobblestone Walk – hidden off the high street and indulge in a delicious lunch at the 16th century tea house. You’ll be feeling smitten in no time.
