South Downs Rambler

7th July - 8th September

True to its name, the South Downs Rambler takes the scenic route from Winchester to Petersfield and back again via the Winchester Science Centre and Planetarium, the views at Cheesefoot Head, the gardens of Hinton Ampner, the Iron Age fort at Old Winchester Hill, the luxurious Langrish House Hotel and two traditional village pubs.

The South Downs Rambler is a summer route, created in partnership by the South Downs National Park Authority, Hampshire County Council, Three Rivers Rail, Cross Country Trains and Bluestar, to offer visitors the chance to explore rural Hampshire in a relaxed and sustainable way.

If you are looking for breathtaking views, visible prehistory, fine pubs and pretty villages with easy access to the South Downs Way and rail links at Winchester and Petersfield the South Downs Rambler is the Sunday bus route for you.

Drivers on the South Downs Rambler have considerable local knowledge and will be delighted to offer guidance.

The South Down's Rambler is back for 2019 and will run 3 trips per day on Sundays (and Bank Holidays) between 7th July and 8th September.
