The NDW can be walked at any time of the year, but is seen at its best between April and October
Beginning in Farnham, the NDW passes close to or through Guildford, Otford, Wrotham, Detling, Charing, Wye, Chilham, Canterbury and Patrixbourne and ends in Dover
Despite some reasonably short steep ascents and descents, the NDW is one of the more gentle of National Trails and is suitable for first-time long-distance walkers.
Passing through the Surrey and Kent Downs Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the NDW crosses Box Hill, visits Neolithic sites like the Coldrum Stones and Kits Coty House, passes below the remains of Thurnham Castle, visits Canterbury Cathedral and Dover Castle, and wanders across Shakespeare Cliff, one of the White Cliffs of Dover.
