About this location
The West Sussex region
The drive south from either Petworth or Midhurst over the South Downs to Chichester is equally picturesque. Taking either road will lead you close to Goodwood about eight miles away, famous for its horseracing and more recently for the motorsport events that Lord March is so passionate about. The South Downs all around Goodwood offer plenty of good walking opportunities and provide you with classic Downland scenery and fine views towards Chichester Cathedral and the Isle of Wight beyond.
The cathedral city of Chichester is one of the great well-preserved Georgian cities in the UK. Chichester has played a key role in the affairs of Sussex since at least Roman times. The city's broad streets are packed with listed buildings headed by the towering presence of the cathedral, now home to a family of peregrine falcons who swoop over the city at dusk . The city centre is neatly enclosed within the ancient city walls and this helps to make Chichester compact and pleasant to explore on foot. There are plenty of good shops and restaurants and if you enjoy the theatre the Chichester Festival Theatre is worth considering as it features many world premieres.
This is just a flavour - consider as well Arundel Castle home to the Duke and Duchess of Norfolk which is a 20 minute drive away, while the south coast and its beaches are within 30 minutes.
This historic market town is best known as the location of the stately home Petworth House and deer park which was landscaped by Capability Brown. The house and its grounds are now owned and maintained by the National Trust. The magnificent country house contains an internationally renowned art collection with numerous works by Turner. Petworth itself was immortalised in his paintings.
The town is full of quaint houses and cottages, many within their own courtyard settings. They are interspersed with antique shops and tearooms so it makes the ideal place for a stroll following your enjoyment of Petworth House and Park.
Attractive villages surround Petworth such as Fittleworth and Byworth to the east and Lodsworth and Lurgashall to the west. Journey further and you reach the market town of Midhurst nestling next to Cowdray Park. The Cowdray Estate is most famous for its polo club particularly in June and July when the polo set meet for the Gold Cup. The Cowdray ruins are also of note since they were important early Tudor courtiers' palaces built from 1520 and form an impressive backdrop to Midhurst.
