When you’re searching for your perfect property, there are some things you won’t want to compromise on, and a great location is one of them. Whether you want to be near local amenities, stunning countryside, or convenient commuter links, location is often a top priority for house hunters. We love this area, but why should you make Burgess Hill your home?
Community is key
Burgess Hill is a fast growing market town in West Sussex with a strong, caring and friendly community spirit just waiting to welcome you in. There are numerous events throughout the year that you can get involved in, from local markets to Fairtrade festivals, and Town Day to Burgess Hill in Bloom. Full of exciting activities to keep you and your family busy, you can keep fit at the Triangle Leisure Centre, partake in the Burgess Hill Bike Ride in June, experience culture and history at museums and theatres, or even join community social clubs to meet some local people.
Offering you all of the amenities you could wish for, Burgess Hill is a haven for commuters. You have all you need on your doorstep, but with major road links and two local train stations – Burgess Hill and Wivelsfield – where you can easily access fast train services to London. Or how about visiting the seaside beaches of Brighton, and easy access to sunshine holidays from Gatwick? If you choose to live in Burgess Hill, a trip to the coast could become a regular weekend activity for you and your family.
Careers and property
With a historic past in the brick-making industry, you could find yourself living in one of the remaining Victorian detached and terraced homes that have stood the test of time, or perhaps a modern new-build in our growing town. The area has come a long way since its brick-making days and is now home to numerous large businesses with international connections, offering you an abundance of employment opportunities.
Offering countryside living with the convenience of town amenities, Burgess Hill is interspersed with glorious green spaces, parkland, and nature reserves. With proximity to the stunning Sussex countryside, you can enjoy horse riding, dog walking, cycling and more. You can appreciate the diverse natural habitat of Ditchling Common Country Park or Batchelors Farm and Bedelands Nature Reserves nestled within the town; wander along the Green Circle Network encircling the town; relax in St John’s Park; or explore the South Downs National Park on the border of Burgess Hill, which is full of wildlife for nature lovers to enjoy. Living in Burgess Hill means that you will never be short of outdoor space to stretch your legs in.

Burgess Hill is home to some great state and private schools, whether you choose Oakmeads Community College, Birchwood Grove Primary, Burgess Hill Girls School, St Paul’s Catholic College or Burgess Hill Academy, this town scores top grades for choice when it comes to your children’s education.
