Billingshurst is a small town located just off the A29, which was a Roman road called Stane Street. It is in the Sussex Weald and lies eight miles south west of Horsham. During medieval times, the village was a coaching stop on the main road from Bognor to Horsham. There are some lovely period buildings in the village, and the medieval church of St Marys is built on a prominent position within the village. Over time, more churches have been built and there are now four of various denominations. The local countryside is beautiful and fantastic for walks and rambling.
Billingshurst High Street has its wide range of shops, as well as cafes, restaurants and pubs using local produce. Once a month there is a Farmers Market, and the village has a lovely local community. There is a library, doctors surgery, and local schools ranging from infants all the way up to secondary. Billingshurst has a leisure centre with gym and swimming pool, as well as an all weather pitch and a four court indoor sports hall. Other facilities include a tennis club and lawn bowling club, as well as fishing lake.
The Billingshurst main line station has excellent services to Gatwick Airport and London Victoria, as well as Bognor Regis and Portsmouth Harbour. There are good connections to the main road network via the A29 and A24 via Horsham to the M23 and M25, giving good access to Gatwick and Heathrow airports, and the coast is also only a short distance away.
