How to reach us by road

Highdown Gardens are situated between Ferring and Goring nestled on the South Downs.

They are accessed via the A259 (Littlehampton Road), which is a dual carriageway, about 3.6 miles off the A27 between Worthing and Arundel:

Coming from the A27 from Worthing direction:

  • Look out for and follow the signs:
    • Black and white road sign: Angmering, Ferring, Clapham, Patching
    • Green road sign: Littlehampton (A259) / Horsham (A24) A280

or coming from the A27 from Arundel direction:

  • Look out for and follow the signs:
    • Black and white road sign: Clapham, patching Angmering, Findon
    • Green road sign: Horsham/ London A280 (A24) / West Worthing (A2700)
  • Go round the roundabout to 'turn right' and go over the A27 on the A280 signposted to Angmering, Rustington

Then on the roundabout (south of the A27) on the A280:

  • Follow the black and white road signs south down the A280 (Water Lane) directed to:
    • Littlehampton A280 (A259)
    • Rustington, East Preston, Angmering
  • Follow the A280 all the way to the roundabout at the end of the road at the junction of the A280 and A259 Littlehampton Road.

Then at the roundabout at the junction of the A280 and A259 Littlehampton Road:

  • Take the A259 to head eastwards towards Worthing and Ferring (A259). Highdown Gardens is approximately 1.2 miles down the dual carriageway (past the garden centre, car showroom, vineyard, speed camera and a 'Welcome to Worthing' sign).
  • The Gardens are then up a small road (Highdown Rise) on the left between two houses and are signposted to 'Highdown Hotel / Highdown Gardens' with a brown tourist sign.
  • Proceed up Highdown Rise to the car park at the top of the hill (about 1/3 of a mile).
  • Once parked you will be able to see the entrance to Highdown Gardens.

Alternatively, if you approach on the A259 from the east (from Worthing):

  • If you are travelling from the east (heading west on the A259), you cannot make a right-hand turn into Highdown Gardens from the A259.
  • You will need to continue along the A259 towards Rustington and Littlehampton with Highdown Gardens on your right-hand side (on the other side of the dual carriageway).
  • You will come to a roundabout at the junction with the A280 just past Asda which you will need to go right around and turn back on yourself to head eastwards back towards Worthing and Ferring (A259). Highdown Gardens is approximately 1.2 miles down the dual carriageway (past the garden centre, car showroom, vineyard, speed camera and a 'Welcome to Worthing' sign).
  • The Gardens are then up a small road (Highdown Rise) on the left between two houses and are signposted to 'Highdown Hotel / Highdown Gardens' with a brown tourist sign.
  • Proceed up Highdown Rise to the car park at the top of the hill (about 1/3 of a mile).
  • Once parked you will be able to see the entrance to Highdown Gardens.
