“The bustling heart of Sussex, offering great access to London, Gatwick and the south coast.“

Welcome to Crawley

What’s it like?

Crawley isn't just a new town. Sure, it offers fantastic shopping, a variety of property styles and easy access to London, Gatwick, and Brighton. But this vibrant West Sussex town also offers fantastic parks, a theatre, fabulous places to eat, and beautiful surrounding villages.

To the east lies Maidenbower village – the perfect place for commuters. On the south side youll find affordable properties in villages such as Pease Pottage, a stones throw from the A23 and M23 motorway. The central districts of West Green, Southgate and Northgate are close to the centre and Crawley mainline station, and popular with all, especially commuters. Ifield also has its own station on the picturesque Arun Valley line that will take you to Horsham and London Bridge.

Relax in Tilgate park and beautiful Buchan Country Park. Or on a rainy day try the Olympic-sized swimming pool at K2 Leisure Centre, or catch the latest films at Cineworld. Hearty, seasonal food is on offer at the cosy Hillside Inn, or spice up your life with an evening of Caribbean food and cocktails at Turtle Bay on the High Street.
