Haywards Heath

Mid Sussex


West Sussex, RH16 3AQ
Haywards Heath


In the heart of mid Sussex is Haywards Heath, which owes much of its growth to the railway.

The town has an impressive collection of Victorian and Edwardian houses, many situated in mature grounds surrounding the Conservation Area of Muster Green.

Discover more on a self-guided walk or explore a little bit further on one of the cycle routes around and about the town.

Victoria Park and Beech Hurst Gardens are great places in which to relax, enjoy a picnic, listen to a concert, or take part in a game of pitch and putt. A few miles to the north, the South of England Showground hosts major shows and events.

The town has an excellent choice of places to eat, including The Broadway, a honey-pot of restaurants, bistros and wine bars, offering something for all tastes and a great place to watch the world go by.

Shoppers can find a wide variety of shops in and around the pedestrianised Orchards Shopping Centre. Plus many events are held in the town and its parks, and Clair Hall offers year-round entertainment including a popular Comedy Club.

Fancy exploring on two wheels, then why not try the on and off road 20 km ride that starts of at Haywards Heath and includes the beautiful village of Lindfield, Paxhill Park and back around towards your start point again.
