The diversity of this county is mesmerizing - from the heathland and valley woodlands to the high empty commons that rise to the soaring outliers of the West Sussex Downs. Historic villages nestle perfectly in stunning landscape alongside vibrant market towns, complemented at every turn by many of the South East’s best country pubs. Pubs like the Stag on the River, Eashing, where you can take lunch beside the millstream, or at the Wiremill at Lingfield overlooking a lake.
Tranquil it may be, but this beautiful county is not short on things to do either. As well as countless free museums, historic houses, gardens and outdoor pursuits, it boasts two of the country’s biggest theme parks.
