Beyond Gatwick: Top sites in the North and South Downs

Most beautiful spots in the North and South Downs

The beauty spots that you must visit when exploring the North and South downs in your rent-a-car

The North and South Downs cover a huge part of southern England, taking in swathes of land from Hampshire’s Itchen Valley in the east to the White Cliffs of Dover in the west. This truly is England’s green and pleasant land, and it’s crying out to be explored.

The North and South Downs are perfect places to explore if you’ve got a hire car.   Pretty villages are dotted liberally around this part of the world, giving you ample chance to stop off for tea and cake when you need a break from driving.

We’ll start in Surrey, and loop west before making our way east towards the English Channel, taking in the beautiful and historic counties of East and West Sussex, and Kent.

Petrol tank loaded and snacks at the ready? Good, we’re ready to go. First, into the North Downs towards the bucolic Surrey Hills...
