Petworth House, National Trust

Petworth, West Sussex

Petworth, in West Sussex, is a quintessentially British medieval town nestled in the South Downs National Park.

It is fortunate to have a selection of outstanding heritage sites all very different from each other but with important connections to the town. In the creation of this website we hope to introduce you to each of these sites where they will tell their stories and hopefully encourage you to come and visit to see them for yourselves.
