Description: The charming market and antiques town of Petworth sits surrounded by the stunning scenery of the South Downs National Park. This small, picturesque town is a renowned centre for art, culture and antiques, with an impressive range of art galleries based here, and over 40 antique dealers dotted along the enchanting streets and cobbled lanes, cheek to cheek with independent shops and boutiques, mouth-watering delicatessens, cafes and restaurants. Each year, the town hosts a series of events which make it a destination not to be missed; the Petworth Fringe and Petworth Music festival, the Petworth Literary Week which often features famous faces from the literary world, an ADFL Antiques & Fine Art Fair, and a Heritage Weekend. Surrounding the town are the walls of the National Trust’s Petworth House and Park, a stunning English stately home built to rival the great European palaces. Beautiful pleasure grounds and sweeping parklands which are the work of Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown stretch for over 700 acres. Explore this historic parkland with its ancient trees, walking in the footsteps of artists, and try to catch a glimpse of the majestic herd of fallow deer. All in all, it's the perfect location for many types of productions! Main photograph: Jon Nicholson. Information: The Great Sussex Way - https://www.thegreatsussexway.org/
