HISTORIC HOUSES, GARDENS AND OTHER ATTRACTIONS

The South-east Hampshire and West Sussex region is renown for historic sites. Stansted Park near Rowland's Castle shows upstairs and downstairs of Edwardian living, while other properties nearby include Goodwood, the home of the Dukes of Richmond & Gordon, Arundel Castle, owned by the Duke of Norfolk, Petworth House, Parham, Uppark, and Hinton Ampner.

Cowdray Park is an Elizabethan ruin and Portchester Castle is a ruin on a Roman Fort: both offering atmosphere and romantic views.

West Dean Gardens situated in a sheltered valley shows the herbaceous border to perfection, as well as specialising in chillies and tomatoes! Staunton Country Park is based on the original gardens of the Chinese expert, Sir George Staunton, and offers stunning views from the terrace, plus unique specimens of plants.

The Weald & Downland Museum, Tangmere Aviation Museum, The Cass Sculpture, Fishbourne Roman Palace, The Southdowns Planetarium, Queen Elizabeth Country Park, Marwell Zoological Park, Amberley Museum, Jane Austen's house at Chawton and Gilbert White's at Selbourne are just a few of the many attractions easily accessible from The Brookfield Hotel. The staff are always happy to assist and inform you.
