The town of Arundel is also close by with Arundel Castle, the river Arun, and the Wetlands wild bird park are "must visits". There are antique shops galore and of course tearooms serving cream teas. The Black Rabbit pub for riverside lunches and a walk around Swanbourne Lake are highly recommended.
For dog walkers, hikers and those who enjoy outstanding countryside, there are myriads of footpaths and beautiful views in Slindon and the Southdowns. The entire area is dotted around with quaint villages and pubs for lunches out.
