Your experience doesn’t need to end at the church either – the area surrounding Warminghurst offers the opportunity to explore local towns and countryside.
The beautiful historic town of Arundel with its impressive castle and one thousand years of history combines well with the array of independent shops and contemporary art galleries. There are plenty of places to eat and drink among the town’s cute streets.
Nearby Petworth House is worth a visit too – a late 17th century Grade I listed country house with its deer park being home to the largest herd of fallow deer in England.
No visit to the area is complete without an explore of the Iron Age fortifications of Chanctonbury and Cissbury Rings. The National Trust location is the largest hill fort in Sussex with a 5,000 plus year history.
For hikes, rolling hills and stunning views, not to mention market towns, traditional country pubs and coastal scenery the new South Downs National Park is a must.
