Cicerone - The North Downs Way
A guidebook to walking the North Downs Way National Trail, a 130 mile (208km) walk between the high downland of Farnham and the historic city of Dover on the Kent coast, with an optional visit to Canterbury. The route is described in 11 stages, and is fully illustrated with colour photographs and OS map extracts. The North Downs Way is one of the easier national trails with a modest number of steep (but short) ascents and descents and long sections with no noticeable height gain or loss. Several historic sites including Neolithic burial chambers, Roman roads and Norman churches are passed and much of the route follows The Pilgrims' Way. The area also boasts many literary connections with some of the most celebrated voices in English literature. A separate pocket-sized map booklet is included and shows the full route on 1:25,000 scale OS maps.
Walking, long distance hiking
The North Downs Way can be walked at any time of the year, but is seen at its best between April and October
Beginning in Farnham, the North Downs Way passes close-to or through Guildford, Otford, Wrotham, Detling, Charing, Wye, Chilham, Canterbury, Patrixbourne and ends in Dover
Despite some reasonably short steep ascents and descents, the North Downs Way is one of the more gentle of National Trails and is suitable for first-time long distance walkers.
- Must See
Passing through the Surrey and Kent Downs Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the North Downs Way crosses Box Hill, visits Neolithic sites like the Coldrum Stones and Kits Coty House; passes below the remains of Thurnham Castle, visits Canterbury Cathedral, Dover Castle, and across Shakespeare Cliff, one of the White Cliffs of Dover.
