About

Ardingly is a parish of attractive wooded scenery in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

The village sign was erected as a memorial to Viscountess Wolseley, and marks the site of the original tollgate. St Peter's Church built around 1300, has a large tower and a well-timbered south porch. Inside there is an effigy of a priest in vestments, five good brasses and some ancient stairs.

Ardingly is home to Wakehurst Place, which has been described as one of the most beautiful gardens in England and is known as 'Kew in the country'. The Millennium Seed Bank, an international seed conservation project is also sited here.

The village is also home to the South of England Showground; Ardingly College, and Ardingly Reservoir with its water sports activity centre.
