Our View

Parham House and Gardens is set within 875 acres in the South Downs of Sussex, and was a 16th-century deer park. Its tranquillity and timeless beauty have changed little over the centuries. Parham is a much-loved family home and is one of the country’s finest Elizabethan houses, complete with a great hall and long gallery. It is home to collections of rare paintings, furniture, needlework and antiquities. The gardens consist of beautiful pleasure grounds and a four-acre walled garden with stunning herbaceous borders, a glasshouse, vegetable garden, orchard and a 1920s Wendy House.

About The area

Discover West Sussex

Divided from East Sussex back in 1888, West Sussex is so typically English that to walk through its landscape will feel like a walk through the whole country. Within its boundaries lies a wide variety of landscape and coastal scenery, but it is the spacious and open South Downs with which the county is most closely associated.

In terms of walking, you’ll be spoilt for choice. Studying the map reveals a multitude of routes – many of them to be found within the boundaries of the South Downs National Park – and an assortment of scenic long-distance trails leading towards distant horizons; all of them offer a perfect way to get to the heart of ‘Sussex by the sea,’ as it has long been known. If you enjoy cycling with the salty tang of the sea for company, try the ride between Chichester and West Wittering. You can vary the return journey by taking the Itchenor ferry to Bosham. 

West Sussex is renowned for its many pretty towns, of course. Notably, there is Arundel, littered with period buildings and dominated by the castle, the family home of the Duke of Norfolk, that dates back nearly 1,000 years.
