Start of the walk
About 7.1 km (roughly 4.4 miles) from 1 OS Grid: TQ026116
If the legs are tired, or you stayed just a bit too long in the pub! Otherwise it's time to decide on the left or right hand side backs of the river as the next crossing point is some way away. The Western bank offers a lovely walk along the edge of the Castle grounds and Wildfowl Centre.
About 4.7 km (roughly 2.9 miles) from 2 OS Grid: TQ019069
Take a closer look at the town of Arundel if you've time. Or make time. The station is a short stroll out of town if you've reached the end of your day.
About 3.3 km (roughly 2 miles) from 3 OS Grid: TQ004041
A gentle stroll down the banks of the river will take you to Ford and another option to end your day with a train journey home.
About 2.6 km (roughly 1.6 miles) from 4 OS Grid: TQ022022
It's worth a detour to the beach if you've both the time and the inclination. Otherwise the station is a stones throw from the bridge.

Join with the Goring-by-Sea to Amberley walk
This walk joins another Car Free Walk halfway - 'The heart of the Downs - Goring-by-Sea to Amberley'. Instead of carrying straight on to Arundel, you can turn off at Amberley and follow the South Downs way. This is a pleasant diversion, especially if you have to head towards Brighton anyway for your transport home.
