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 Charing north of Ashford to the end of the path at Dover. For the previous section please click here.


Assuming a constant pace and no stops, typically it will take 9 hours 56 minutes to walk the distance and along the way 2655 calories will be burnt.
