It came in the top ten for the South East. With that in mind we take a look at some of the things that make Petworth great. From the square to Petworth House Park it is home to a number of independent shops and cafes.
About Petworth the judges said: “Nowhere does posh better than this old-fashioned Sussex market town.
"The independent shops in its town centre are a delight and Petworth Park and the surrounding South Downs are perfect places for walks - with or without a lockdown dog.”
Their favourite things in Petworth included The Hungry Guest deli and bakery, which has an brilliant cheese selection and has been delivering brownies and other treats to local NHS staff and homeless shelters.
And the 42-year-old Petworth Festival, a classy musical/literary event, and the not-for-profit Film House, based at the beautiful Leconfield Hall.
