106km from the suburbs of Croydon to the sea at Newhaven. On the way you will pass through a National Park, two areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, a Heritage Coast, and 3 scheduled sites of national or regional interest. There are great views throughout the route, including two of the best in Britain: the Cuckmere meanders and the Seven Sisters. Nearly all of the route is on public rights of way, and goes mostly through open countryside and woodland. The route is well served by public transport, so you can easily walk it on day trips.

This section is an idyllic area of rolling countryside and small farms, mostly in open countryside and pastures. From Poundgate you gradually descend a ridge to High Hurstwood, then cross the River Uck just before reaching Pound Green on the outskirts of Buxted. The VGW then passes through one of its most delightful stretches around Tickerage Mill, and briefly joins the Wealdway.
