Alfriston, Sussex

Review of Alfriston by Steven on November 9th, 2007
Stayed at The Star, had a great stay. The new owners were lovely, and very accomodating. Our second night, we decided to eat at The The Tudor House, and just had to mention, what a fantastice meal we had. We could not fault the food or service, a must visit for anyone visiting Alfriston.

Arundel, Sussex

Review of Arundel by Pete Butler on March 5th, 2006
To walk into the vast Drawing Room that overlooks the River Arun, at Arundel Castle, is quite an experience, as this was originally Henry the Second's Great Hall. The beautiful church-like Dining Room, next to this, was his Chapel. The impressive Medieval [9ft thick] curtain wall practically surrounds the entire Castle, and is a special survival - not to mention its wonderful Medieval earthworks, Keep of 1140, Gatehouse of 1070, Barbican of 1200, Regency Library [formed from the original Elizabethan Long Gallery, etc. Quite easily one of the finest castle's to be found anywhere.

Chichester, Sussex

Review of Chichester by Dennis James on June 25th, 2007
The village venue looks terrific. What's giving me heartburn, and no doubt many other tourists trying to do two venues in one day, is the 10:30 opening. As it is we will only have an hour and 15 at the site before having to leave to make an appointment in Shaftsbury. Is it possible to get in by 10am? I've noticed the common opening of 10am at most venues and wonder why this is so considering the flow of site hungry tourists like us. Regards, Dennis James. Historian. Teacher.

Review of Chichester by Pete Butler on March 26th, 2006
A vibrant, popular and exciting city, Chichester has a rich history, from Roman and Saxon through to its awe-inspiring Norman presence in the shape of its vast cathedral, and later Medieval buildings. During the Norman period a motte-&-bailey castle was established in Chichester, though had a short life, and all that remains today is its rather sad looking, truncated motte.

Chilgrove, Sussex

Review of Chilgrove by clare on April 21st, 2009
I visited the Fish House for a celebration dinner as had been watching the hype for months. However what we ate was in a word VERY friends and i gave it around 3 of 10. The service was impeccable and the front of house manager, Paul, was fantastic. Just a shame the food didnt live up to it. The decor, despite the reported 4.2 million spent on it, was no better than any gastro pub in the area. Certainly wont be going back.

Review of Chilgrove by Karalie Hillyer on March 19th, 2007
We lived in Chilgrove as the war ended, in a cottage then known as Underwood Cottage (now, I believe, Plantation Cottage.) No running water, tilly lamps, the glorious beech wood behind, and the hamlet which had the pub, blacksmith, (I used to ride across the Downs with him, delivering letters. He on Laddie, and I on laddie's mum, Topsy. His family lived in the cottage on the R.H.end of the White Horse, and his forge was opposite. The family Renwick farmed their dairy herd, milked by Landgirls. My brother and I ran wild over the Downs!Glorious happy days!

Review of Climping by burt on May 3rd, 2009
not much in climping but that is its appeal - windy walks along a deserted beach (in winter) - and the fabulous bailiffscourt hotel of course. Oh and a nice pub at the end of the lane. Gets busy in summer though

Crawley, Sussex

Review of Crawley by Geraldine Todd on August 16th, 2006
For the thousands of travellers who travel out of Gatwick airport, if staying overnight in the area they could visit Crawley which is very easily reached by car. Crawley is a bustling town with a huge variety of shops, eating places and pubs. The undercover Mall is a very modern shopping precinct where the local tourist board staff are happy to give advice to visitors. Not only does Crawley have a shopping area there are a number of large recreation parks in and around the centre. Tilgate Park with over 400 acres of gardens, woodland and lakes with a nature centre is certainly worth visiting. Crawley has a leisure centre where there is a multi-screen cinema, bowling facilities and eateries. Ideal for families to enjoy some activities together. Obviously I cannot cover every asect of Crawley but please remember next time you stay-over near Gatwick to take some time out and visit Crawley itself I think you will be pleasantly surprised.

Review of Crawley by Pete Butler on March 28th, 2006
A rather overlooked 'part' of Crawley, is the ancient village of Ifield. Sitting to the west of the Crawley town centre, it has a beautiful Medieavl church and quaint streets, at its historic heart. The Quakers House is reputed to be THE first Quaker meeting place in the world, and nestled beside it is a lovely little cemetery. Ifield Railway Station is situated at the norternmost end of Ifield Lane, originally being called 'Ifield Halt', and being built in 1906. Ifield is easily reached by train from Horsham, or Three Bridges, and I would recommend a visit to anyone who likes the idea of an Olde English village..but you have to walk through the busier part to reach the village heart! Notice too, the vast number of ancient oak trees, that once obviously lined the lanes in Medieval times. Ifield, of course, is mentioned in the great Domesday Book.

Eastbourne, Sussex

Review of Eastbourne by Marie Pedley on May 26th, 2011
Eastbourne is a quiet clean coastal town worthy of a visit and there are many attractions within driving distance. However, we would like to warn fellow travellers about the apartment we stayed in. Here is our review below. Travellers please beware Ground floor Devonshire Mansions Mr Gary Ablewhite Eastbourne UK The best that can be said about this apartment is that it is modern and clean and well located. Our involvement with those associated with running it was disastrous. The first problem is that a few days prior to arriving I rang up to ask about access and where we collect the key. I was informed by our contact Georgina, that she would meet us at the apartment and that we needed to bring our own bedding. This was not in the details and had not been mentioned in any e-mails to me. Upon arrival we parked up a few streets away from the apartment and called Georgina, who said that she would meet us at the apartment. I asked if we could use the secure parking to which she replied abruptly 'no', without any explanation. We had had a long journey and we were fed up with the lack of communication. Our baby had been sick all over her car seat and we had to park on double yellow lines at the apartment while waiting for Georgina to turn up. She never explained that she had to come from another part of Eastbourne and was not located at Devonshire Mansions. After over half an hour of waiting she turned up without an apology and let us in. We asked why we had to provide our own bedding to which she replied that she had not been told to make up the beds for us. We asked for contact details for someone to ring in case there was a problem and she suggested that we contact the apartment owner, Mr Ablewhite. We could also try her but she explained that her phone was playing up and so there was little point. It was the coldest holiday welcome we have ever received and we have stayed in many holiday homes all over the world. Anyway, I tried to contact both Mr Ablewhite and Mr Meehan (agent?) and got no reply from either of them. When we went to the bathroom, we discovered that no towels were provided either, so we had to pop down to the shops to purchase a set of towels. This was very annoying as this was also not mentioned in the property details. Our own fitted sheets also did not fit the king size bed. Our stay at the apartment was uneventful and I have little to complain about the apartment itself. It is located close to the seafront and being on the ground floor the sea can be glimpsed from the apartment. The secure parking is in the basement and is accessed by key fob. To gain access to the car park requires travelling by a lift, even though it is only one floor below the apartment. The is no alternative stairway to the basement. On leaving we cleaned up the apartment and left it as we found it. Over the next few weeks we waited for our deposit to be returned. Please note that it says in the contract that it will be returned within 12 days. I sent off three e-mails that received no reply and tried to call both Mr Meehan and Mr Ablewhite. I was prepared to go through the small claims court to get this matter resolved but it was finally returned extremely late after my wife finally got through to Mr Ablewhite. Once again neither explanation nor apology was given and we believe he intended to keep the deposit hoping we wouldn’t chase it up. To conclude, if you want a stress free holiday I would suggest you certainly look elsewhere. I have given the apartment one star because of the terrible service we received from start to finish.

Review of Eastbourne by Andy on May 12th, 2007
Once a place for old farts,Eastbourne is changing fast,with niteclubs opening up regularly to serve the party massive. The hardest part is deciding which niteclub to choose. With 7 withing walking distance,you've got 1 for each nite of the week,a week that'll have you coming back.

Review of Eastbourne by Ron Milligan on March 23rd, 2007
Not so much a review rather the memory of having a last tot of rum in The Hurst Arms at 2pm before getting married on the 24th December, 1964 at St. Phillips Church. I was in the RN then and spent many happy week ends in Eastbourne courting the wife.Happy to say that I am still married. Thank you

Fittleworth, Sussex

Review of Fittleworth by Pete on March 28th, 2006
The famous composer, Elgar, lived at pleasant Fittleworth, and the almost equally well known, Swan Inn, is to be found here (c.1367). Fittleworth Church is ancient, though restored in Victorian times, as so many were. The village seems romantically caught in an earlier age, and sits beside the beautiful winding country lane that no doubt its ancient villagers knew so well.

Gatwick, Sussex

Review of Gatwick by on March 28th, 2006
Many may not realise, but Gatwick means 'Goat Farm' in old Saxon lingo - so, what is now an international centre of world travel, actually began life as a goat enclosure. Its cousin, Heathrow, was originally the playground-of-thievery for none other than Dick Turpin!

Glastonbury, Sussex

Review of Glastonbury by I wonder ? on September 28th, 2009
Crystals, candles, many forms of, "divination".....Tarot cards, astrology readers, healers, vegetarian cafes...They're all here in Glastonbury. I personally do not think that crystals have any effect on anything whatsoever. candles, well, they're handy when there's a power cut. Tarot, astrology ? Well, I've seen and heard the, "readers" quite a few times, and I think most of them are pathetic, and useless. You hear their next to useless views, you sit there wide eyed for an hour, then promptly forget the whole thing. Healers ? Having asked many people about their, "healing" session, I often hear, "it was really good"....."did you get cured of whatever" I ask. "I think so" they reply. In other words, they didn't. Moronic waste of time and money. Vegetarian cafes, well, I'm a vegetarian and have been for many years. I think eating murdered animals in an act of absolute insanity. If only the cafe owners were vegeterian as well. They like to make you think they are alright, I wonder why ? These are some of my observations on Glastonbury. More later.....

Review of Hastings by Claire on December 17th, 2007
Please amend your prices on Clambers. It costs 6 pounds per child over 18 months plus 1 pound for each adult. Great venue but extortionate prices. Very expensive day out - It even has non-refundable lockers at 1 pound!!

Review of Hastings by Pete on March 28th, 2006
Although largely in ruins, Hastings Castle is an historical gem, and not only for playing its own part in the Battle of Hastings fought further inland at Battle. Thomas Beckett (a' Beckett is a modern version of his name that bears nothing to its reality) was a head priest of the chapel here, prior to becoming Archbishop of Canterbury, and this cliff-top site is still very atmospheric.The town of Hastings is largely Victorian, and tends to lie in the shadow of its more prestigious neighbour, but a lovely place to visit..and don't forget to look at the castle!

Review of Horsham by John Nelson on October 30th, 2006
Enjoyed a fabulous family Sunday lunch, good food, great staff BUT the disabled loo was a nightmare for an old lady with two carers far too small, doors opening at odd angles and cluttered by a linene basket! Barely met the legal minimum. At the other end of the age scale, we had stop the 19 month old grandson from picking up one of dozens of old cigarette ends on the garden terrace. Very unpleasant for all of us to look at too. Day spoilt by lack of attention to detail

Review of Lewes by "Rondo" Frederick R. Gage on May 19th, 2007
I am an American descendant of Sir John Gage and had the pleasure of visiting my ancestral home June of 2006. Lord Gage, my cousin spent 45 minutes having lunch with me and it will always remain as one of the most special moments of my life. My family found out about our 500 years history in 1997 so I grew unaware. When I toured europe with "America's Youth In Concert" we toured both "The Tower of London" and "Winsor Castle" not knowing my ancestral connection to them both. Please visit Peter and Penny Woolgar, they are wonderful people and great caretakers of my families history and home!!!! Also attend a sermon at Gage Chapel with Pastor Peter. I hope to return to Firle Place again very soon!!! "Rondo"

Review of Lewes by Peter on March 28th, 2006
Lying above Brighton, and a good deal older than its famous neighbour, Lewes [with its Norman castle beautifully bathed in light every night..why on earth do they not do this at Arundel?) is as historic, as it is charming. Much to see and do here, with a wonderful shopping centre as well. The haunting Cluniac Priory ruins are a sad relic of royal politics, and once yeilded a remarkable find in the shape of its founders [William and Gundulph de Warenne] being 'unearthed' when Victorian builders stumbled upon their coffins, while digging the new railway line in 1865. The Priory was a HUGE foundation, and the new railway line was rather scandalously cut right through the once extensive ruins. Visit the famous 14th Century building that is today a charming bookshop sitting atop narrow Keere St, where legend would have it that the Prince Regent wrecklessly drove his carriage down..for a bet [!], & don't miss the lovely Elizabethan Southover House, constructed out of the Priory ruins. Its lovely gardens benefitted too, with lovely decorated Norman stonework to be seen hither and thither..

Review of Mayfield by mrs karen(parker)mariano on November 13th, 2009
I went first to the convent of the holy child jesus in hastings when i was nine and moved onto the old palace at mayfield ......had some wonderful times at both schools,but on occasions felt homesick as my parents were living at the time in the phillipines and i only saw them once a year in the summer holidays.I remember the nuns being very strict but i grew up there learning some good morals and still abide by the school motto'action not words' what an excellent motto.Wondered if you had an ideas as to how i could try and track down old school friends be interesting to find out what they all did in their lives.I was at the old palace from 1970-1987.Look forward to hearing from you.karen x

Midhurst, Sussex

Review of Midhurst by Alma Friston on February 25th, 2007
My husband and I spent our honeymoon at the Royal Oak on Saturday 5th of March 1955. At that time it was a small inn which only sold beer. I believe we only stayed there because of a favour by friends. Adelightful couple ran it, the name escapes me, possibly Harry and his wife. They had a relative staying with them who was a funeral director, what stories were told that night . they kept us up until midnight. I remember a fox pelt hanging on the door which led to a small dining room and the upstairs bedroom, It must have changed considerably since then.I remember the landlord used to go round the village to pick up any regulars who had trouble walking.

Review of Midhurst by John Trueman, Editor, Midhurst Pages on April 20th, 2006
In 2004 Country Life Magazine voted Midhurst in West Sussex the Best Place to Live in Southern England. It is a small, compact Market Town with under 5000 inhabitants and is surrounded by beautiful, accessible countryside which is ideal for walking, mountain-biking and riding. North Street pavements are wide and have, in addition, a cobbled margin where cars and unloading lorries are allowed to park. Although the road through Midhurst, North Street, is generally busy, especially in the holiday months, you never feel hemmed in by the traffic which is slowed down by a new mini-roundabout and pedestrian crossing. There are two International Hotels - the Spread Eagle and Angel - and numerous pubs and restaurants. Surprisingly, there are several avante garde ladies fashion shops, an organic butchers, a traditional 'gentleman's outfitters' and antique shops offering discontinued china antique silver and old clocks. A kitchen company - arguably one of the best in Southern England - has its HQ and Showroom in the town. Cowdray Castle is, in part, being renovated to keep the structure from collapsing, and a new visitor centre will become active in 2007. The Tudor Walled Garden at the Cowdray Ruins is well worth a visit; and a walk a long the banks of the River Rother a complete delight. The 1000 year old Queen Elizabeth oak is still florishing in Cowdray Park - Queen Elizabeth 1 visited the oak when dropping in on Cowdray Castle in the 16th century.For those studying the old wildwood of Britain, Cowdray Park with its old oaks and chesnuts, and the adjoing Petworth Park, is a big surprise Midhurst is a popular film set and has recently played host to Foyle's War, the period whodunnit, set in World War 2. Episodes 1 and 2 were filmed in Church Hill and Knockhundred Row. Details may be viewed here: For building historians and architects studying vernacular architecture Midhurst is an essential place to visit as the town is rich in buildings dating back to the 15th century, mostly extremely well preserved. Listed Building architects involved in the town's renovations have their business in Hedley within easy motoring distance.In conjunction with the vernacular architecture studies at the near-by Weald & Downland Museum, Midhurst provides a venue for studying the migration of vernacular architecture to Virginia in the US from the time of the first settlements. Midhurst is also an ideal spot to start a collection of Pub Signs as there are numerous inns; and many more popular pubs in the outlying villages. One a year in the satellite village of Heyshott an open-air rally and working exhibtion of old farm tractors, threshing machines and farm implements is held with ploughing competitions with the 'old' or traditional kit. Defintely a 'must' for farm and countryside historians. There are two large free public carparks, one adjoining North Street and the other at the Grange on the southern edge of the town. There are outdoor cafes and secluded gardens where you can enjoy peace and tranquillity. H.G.Wells grew up in the town and you can walk in the footsteps of the Invisible Man. Historians of World War 2, especially the invasion period when many British, Canadian and American troops were stationed in West Sussex,will find the cental location of Midhurst ideal for their studies. There is a computer centre where visitors may undertake research on the Internet and the West Sussex Record Office is only an easy 15 minutes drive away in Chichester. People hunting for antiques, including French Country Furniture, find Midhurst's central location - between Petworth in the east and Petersfield in the west - ideal. There are probably more antique businesses in these three towns than anywhere else in the UK, and travelling between the towns is a quick,effortless, country drive. Finally, for riders and polo enthusiasts this is the ultimate horsey part of England.If you are Londoner and want to spend the week-end riding start by contacting the Cowdray Estate which has holiday cottages to let near Benbow Pond. For more information on Midhurst visit the Community Website at

Review of Midhurst by on March 24th, 2006
A beautiful town 6miles from Petworth, with the ruins of Cowdray House a major attraction. Queen Elizabeth the First stayed here in 1597, and apparently shot a deer in Cowdray Park. Her younger brother, Edward the Sixth, also came to Midhurst, staying at Cowdray where he was 'excessively banketted' (sic), according to his diaries.

Review of Pulborough by Pete Butler on March 23rd, 2006
During 1985, the YTS 'Youthforce' team, repaired all of the table-top tombs in Pulborough churchyard. I was a part of that team, and very much enjoyed my time working there. Many Roman finds have been unearthed at this high-perched site, and undoubtedly there was a Roman presence on such an advantageous location, prior to the church being built here. The famous 20th Century ghosthunter, lived and died at Pulborough, and his grave is to be found in the churchyard.

Review of Selsey by Miss S Kely on April 29th, 2008
We went to West Sands Selsey on 25/04/08 and arrived in our silver carvan, and after that we had one problem after another. Firsty a bedroom light had shattered and been placed in a wardrobe, the side table was broken, a draw was broken but the final thing was the double bed that had planks missing - Dave the maintence man was really friendly when trying to fix the problems and finally suggested we move. We got moved to a Gold caravan what was spacious, the only problem that we had with that caravan was that the bathroom light was not working and the heater was also not working. Ok, so we had a few problems with the caravan, but alhtogeth the holiday its self was brillient, the evening entertainment was brillent espechally when Suzie Quatro appeard, that was our highlight my little brother 4 really enjoyed himself at the kids club as we could leave him in there while we would watch the show. The swimming pool was fantastic, the fun fair was a blast, the beach was so close. And i just want to say a well done to all the team at West Sands for the holiday anbd espechally mading it look lovely after the storm a couple of months ago that trashed many caravans leaving missing spaces at the site. The site its self is huge Thats all i have to say about that, wew are already thinking about another holiday there when Toyah Wilcoks is there. Brillient

Review of Selsey by mikethelifecoach on March 8th, 2006
We first visited to Selsey four years ago. We found driving along the road into Selssy a farm shop where we stopped to buy some fresh fruit.

Last year I collapsed and was very ill with great and warm felt thanks to security at bunn leisure and Selseys first responders they saved my life the ambulance was there in three minutes. Now we can all enjoy sunny Selsey by the sea. There is everything there for all the family.

We all look forward to visiting Goodwood Revival .thanks to Selsey we can enjoy the beauty and the health aspect of Selsey as it is three miles out to sea . The three winds of Selsey is amazing for your health its a place where we love to be.

Review of Steyning by on April 1st, 2006
Steyning was a major port during the Anglo-Saxon period, and important enough to have Alfred the Great's father buried there [he was later re-buried, at Winchester]. Lovely shopping centre here, amid ancient buildings and welcoming old pubs, and a generally nice villagy feel. Steyning Church is a spacious Norman building, at one time much bigger, with an Elizabethan tower. The local museum is run by volunteers, and its website can be found at:

Review of Wisborough Green by jillie royle on January 24th, 2010
The Three Crowns must have changed hands since I last went there - what a shock - there used to be an extensive menu, lots of people, a cosy atmosphere and delicious bar food. No More. The place was empty, the dining room was like a cheap hotel, the menu small and half the things were `0ff` due to what the landlord said was a rush over lunch. We arrived at 1.30!!! The soup tasted like packet, I ordered fish cakes and got a fish pie which was packet with salmon and vitually nothing else, and my friend had a tiny helping of Gravlax, three tiny slices for £7.50. Having driven an hour and looking forward to the Three Crowns as it used to be we were bitterly disappointed. The poor Landlord seemed to be in charge of the bar, the kitchen and waiting at table - what a change to the old days. Would not RECOMMEND.

Worthing, Sussex

Review of Worthing by Pete Butler on March 24th, 2006
Worthing is too often associated with its seafront, town cente & the elderly folk who like to retire to the sea. But let us not forget, that Worthing also encompasses the neighbouring villages of Broadwater, Durrington, Salvington, High Salvington, Tarring, Goring and Findon Valley. There are historical delights to be found in each of these - High Salvington Windmill [c.1750, restored and beautifully maintained by Peter Casebow & friends]; Broadwater's exquisite Medieval church with famed Norman tower; Tarring's 14th Century 'Parsonage Row' & Archbishop's Palace [c.1230]; Salvingon's quaint streets and, Goring's ancient Tudor coaching inn 'The Bull', and famous Ilex Walk.
