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 Sussex part of the path as it enters the county at Rowlands Castle to the footpath's end on the coast at Shoreham-by-Sea. For the Hampshire section please click here.


Assuming a constant pace and no stops, typically it will take 18 hours 58 minutes to walk the distance and along the way 5070 calories will be burnt.
