What’s it like?

A fast growing town, ideal for commuters, families and older residents, Burgess Hill is located at the edge of the South Downs National Park. This makes it the perfect place for anyone who wants to combine the convenience of town living with outdoor pursuits from cycling to horse riding, to dog walking around the fabulous countryside.

Two mainline stations – Burgess Hill and Wivelsfield – offer frequent and fast services to London, the stunning south coast, and the bohemian market town of Lewes. Burgess Hill is great for commuters as the majority of the town is within walking distance of a station. The rest of the world is also within reach, thanks to Burgess Hills proximity to Gatwick Airport via the A23, just a few minutes drive away.

There are some good schools here, state and private. Theres a fantastic range of properties to choose from too, from well-appointed modern homes to unique older properties with generous gardens and parking.

St Johns Park, Burgess Hill Golf Centre and Plumpton Race Course are all within easy reach, while families will love Bedelands Nature Reserve and the Triangle Leisure Centre with indoor/outdoor rapids and soft play areas.
