Burgess Hill

New homes in Burgess Hill.

Burgess Hill is between Brighton and Crawley, just off the A23 - the direct route, literally, between the two. This convenient location makes Burgess Hill a popular base for work journeys – especially if they include international flights from Gatwick - and days out.

Living here gives you both West Sussex and East Sussex, as it’s right on the border. It also gives you the fabulous open space of the South Downs, between Burgess Hill and Brighton. This is a home town for all the family, with business parks and shopping centres, sports clubs and leisure centres, parks and nature reserves.

Historic buildings give you a sense of the past and new developments give you a sense of community. A new home here will enjoy the advantages of both.

Living in Burgess Hill

On the go

The A23 is just 5 miles to the west of Burgess Hill. From there it’s just under 12 miles to Crawley and Gatwick Airport, and just under 11 miles to Brighton. On the Gatwick side of Crawley, you can join the M23 for an easy drive to the M25. Train services on the Brighton Main Line are a useful alternative to the car, with connections to Gatwick Airport and then on to London Victoria. Local services include Littlehampton via Hove & Worthing, as well as Brighton of course. You can be in London Victoria in under an hour and Brighton in just 10 minutes.

Exploring the South Downs

Though the landscape is ancient, this is one of the UK’s newest National Parks. It’s lucky to have International Dark Sky Status too – one of the best places in the country to view the night sky. Set yourself the challenge of walking the South Downs Way all the way from Winchester to Eastbourne. With over 2,000 miles of footpaths and trails, you can choose a Sunday stroll or a full-on trek. Either way, what an asset to have close to home.


For the beach, for entertainment, for shopping and for a night out, Brighton is easy to reach, exciting to visit and great to have just 10 minutes away by train. Brighton is not just important for leisure and tourism, it’s a longstanding base for commerce and employment and it’s an important retail centre too.
