‘Picturesque Steyning in the heart of Sussex’

Steyning is a small town and, with the South Downs landscape and charming local architecture as a stunning backdrop, it is certainly one of the most picturesque in Sussex. The town has a cheerful, vibrant community, a host of interesting shops, the award-winning Cobblestone walk and country pubs and fine restaurants aplenty.

The town is rich in history, evident from the multitude of timber-framed buildings that are in and around the High Street, an excellent museum, a Norman parish church with its exquisite Romanesque architecture and the ruins of a Norman castle at nearby Bramber.

Steyning is also the perfect place to explore the Downs, the Weald of central Sussex and the Adur Valley as well the famous Chanctonbury Ring, the Iron Age hill fort at Cissbury Ring and the many lanes and footpaths that link the Downs, river and hamlets with the area’s ancient churches and inns.
