A stay at Ghyll Manor does not mean a lack of shopping opportunities. With Brighton just 27 miles away it’s an easy trip to experience the hustle and bustle of this great City including The Lanes, North Laines and the Churchill Square Shopping Centre – with so many shops shops, cafés, bars and restaurants you’ll be spoilt for choice.

Head North and you’ll find the historic market town of Horsham, a delightful jewel in the Sussex countryside with less hustle and bustle than Brighton but just as much charm. Why not pop in and visit Horsham Museum and Art Gallery whilst you’re there?

Alternatively, why not head west towards the cathedral city of Chichester? The compact pedestrianised streets offer excellent boutiques as well as high street favourites. On your way back, pop in to Arundel - well known for its eclectic mix of antique shops boasting antiquarian maps, art deco glass, teddy bears and French country tables. Galleries and craft shops are abundant too. 

In fact, tucked away in towns and villages all over East and West Sussex, you'll find unusual and facinating shops selling everything from antiques and bric-a-brac to fashion and contemporary arts and crafts. All that's left to do is decide where to head first!
