Cycling

Sustrans National Route 20 takes you from Crawley Down to Brighton on the Downs and Weald cycle route. Cycle into Handcross, where you'll find National Trust's Nymans Gardens, and on to Brighton. Alternatively, pick up Route 21 all the way to Greenwich, or south east along the traffic-free Worth Way and the Cuckoo Trail to Eastbourne.


Walking

The Worth Way is a traffic free walk that goes from Crawley to East Grinstead, mostly along a disused railway line. Pick up the Downs Link, much of which is traffic free, which runs from Guildford through to Shoreham on the south coast. Tilgate Park is also ideal for walking, with a variety of paths and forest routes.


Things to try

Visit Standen House and Gardens for beautiful walks with nature and Morris & Co. interiors, or discover a unique collection of British aircraft at the Gatwick Aviation Museum.

If you're more into mind-bending puzzles than country walks, head to Tulley's Farm and try your hand at breaking out of an escape room.
