The Park

Covering an area of 5000 acres of mostly open downland and woodland, set within the South Downs National Park - an area of outstanding natural beauty, Stanmer Park is regarded as the 'jewel in the crown' of Brighton's Parks. It is much loved and used by walkers, horse-riders, cyclists, those interested in natural history and families who just want to enjoy the countryside.
