The North Downs Way National Trail offers walkers 153 miles of spectacular scenery, picturesque villages and glorious rolling countryside. But then you would expect nothing less from a route that passes through both the Surrey Hills and Kent Downs Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONBs). Short sections are open to horseriders and cyclists too.

This trail covers the section from the Surrey border to Charing north of Ashford. For the next section please click here. For the previous section through Surrey please click here.
