“A pretty Sussex village with a historic High Street, great schools and superb road/rail links, all surrounded by the beautiful Sussex countryside“

Welcome to Billingshurst, West Sussex

What’s it like?


Beautiful views of the South Downs, outstanding schools, mainline access to London, Brighton, Barnham, Gatwick and Heathrow airports… Billingshurst sounds like the dream location.

Billingshurst and its surrounding villages are the perfect place for commuters who want ease of access to London along with the country life. This charming village lies on the Wey and Arun Canal with its older buildings – including St Mary’s Church – believed to date back to the 12th century. Both pretty period properties and stylish contemporary houses establish the street character of the village centre and residential streets. In the heart of the village 16th century former coaching inns can be found, including The Kings Arms, The Kings Head and The Six Bells all of which offer a warm welcome and great beer.

There are several well-regarded local schools, including Billingshurst Primary School, The Weald Secondary School and Sixth Form, Christ’s Hospital as well as other private schools in the nearby area which make this a great location for young families.

Venture further afield and you’ll discover attractive and thriving villages including Wisborough Green and the prestigious town of Petworth with the magnificent Petworth House and parklands, carefully managed by The National Trust.
