The Monarch's Way is a long-distance footpath in England that approximates the escape route taken by King Charles II in 1651 after being defeated in the Battle of Worcester.

This trail covers the Hampshire part of the path as it enters the county north-east of Salisbury to the West Sussex border at Rowlands Castle. For the Sussex section please click here.
