The official guide to this superb National Trail, published in conjunction with Walk Unlimited. Whether you're an experienced long distance walker or a weekend stroller, this is the only companion you need. The North Downs Way is the National Trail that follows the official acorn waymarks from Farnham to the coast at Dover. This picturesque trail takes in chalk ridges, river valleys and sections of the Pilgrims’ Way. At the eastern end you can either walk via Canterbury (a total distance of 130 miles, 208 km) or follow the southern route (123 miles, 197 km). This is the complete official guide to walking the well-loved and popular North Downs.
