Petworth is a quaint, typically English market town within easy reach of London which is recognised as a major hub for antiques and the arts, with over 30 antiques dealers trading within a mile radius, and a thriving arts scene.

What kind of shops can I find here?

The pretty streets of Petworth are dotted with original, interesting stores specialising in everything from interiors and homewares, to ladieswear and lingerie, as well as flowers, books, art and gifts. A stroll around the town is a world away from the traditional high street, with hidden lanes and cobbled streets perfect whether you’re on the hunt for the perfect item or just browsing. From the array of antique stores you can find treasures and trinkets, while homeware boutiques offer ceramics, candles, gifts, soaps, home decor accessories and so, so much more.


The town has a strong food offering, with shops specialising in fresh, artisan fare such as a traditional butchers, a bakery and the Hungry Guest delicatessen with its dedicated cheese room, as well as a monthly farmers market featuring selected local producers, and of course welcoming cafes and restaurants.


Where can I stop for a coffee or lunch?

After some retail therapy, a warm welcome awaits at Petworth’s cafes, pubs and restaurants – for example Tiffins Tearoom or The Hungry Guest
