Visit Crawley: Your Travel Guide

Things to Do in Crawley

Tilgate Park
With sprawling woodlands and bridleways, Tilgate Park is an ideal spot for hiking, dog walking and horseback riding. You’ll discover beautiful flowers, lush gardens and lakes, where you can boat or fish. The on-site wildlife area and forest adventure park are great for the kids, while everyone can enjoy the on-site pub for a well-deserved bite.
High Beeches Woodland
Sussex’s High Beeches Woodland is an enchanting park perfect for long walks, discovering wildlife and marvelling at the many rare and exotic plants. In the springtime, magnolias and daffodils bloom, while autumn brings on an explosion of red and orange leaves. In summer you can’t miss the butterflies dancing around the ancient acid wildflower meadow.
Ifield Water Mill
Lovingly restored by a group of local volunteers, this 19th-century mill stands on a site of agricultural activity that dates back to Roman times. Today, Ifield Water Mill is a working corn mill and visitor centre, where you can trace the history of milling and agriculture in West Sussex across four floors of exhibition space.

It's central to where we need to be and that along with the cost is what matters.

Has various cuisine choices - we ate Indian in Southgate, Carribean food + traditional English food in Brewery Shades -with very plentiful servings.

Just amazing but quite scary also surprising as we were hundreds of miles from the ocean And had no boat or scuba equipment

Close to the coast so easy to visit Brighton.

nothing you can't find anywhere else

I did not visit Crawley
