Visitors wishing to indulge in a little retail therapy will be spoilt for choice. Petworth has a well-established reputation as a unique retail haven away from the bustle of the traditional High Street. It is a real treasure trove of independent boutiques, cafes, restaurants and accommodation. The town offers a wide range of products and services from flowers, fine foods, books, natural luxury skincare, ladies’ designer fashions, traditional gentlemen’s clothing not to mention the world-famous antiques and arts establishments - some 37 of them all within a half-mile radius.
After sampling the delights of Petworth, why not give your feet and taste buds a treat by stopping off at one of the many cafes, pubs and restaurants?
Just want a cup of coffee or quick bite to eat? Enjoy a delicious cream tea from Tiffins, a gorgeous hot chocolate from Coco Cafe & Sugar Lounge or a chilled, cafe culture experience from The Hungry Guest in Lombard Street.
From traditional country pubs like The Star, The Grove and The Stonemasons Inn to gastro pubs with excellent accommodation like the newly opened Angel, Badgers and Horseguards Inn, Petworth has something to suit all tastes and budgets.
