One of the joys of this corner of West Sussex is the relaxed atmosphere, induced by the rolling countryside and open park scapes which surround the town. This makes for ideal walking country with so much accessible land, affording a variety of views and topography around every corner. The interesting architecture and history of town of Petworth itself, as it wraps around the walls of the grand estate of Petworth House and Gardens, also offers some fascinating walking tours.
