Like many places in the UK, Crawley is divided into a series of residential neighbourhoods around the town centre, each comes with its own schools, shops and community facilities.
Things to do in Crawley
Crawley is very lucky to be surrounded by beautiful countryside that is just waiting to be explored. Much of this countryside is conserved by an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
On Crawley’s southern border you can find the stunning green space named Tilgate Park. It is a former country estate across more than 2,000 acres ready for you to delve into. Navigating this area on foot is best with trails through the pine forest that opens out to Tilgate Lake. If you’re looking for a little more adventure then Tilgate Park Watersports might be for you. They hire out equipment for kayaking, canoeing, paddleboarding, dinghy sailing or simply rowing a boat.
For more greenery you may want to check out other open spaces such as Buchan Country Park or Nymans – a beautiful national trust property with large gardens surrounding the partial ruins of a Revivalist house.
For the family, Crawley boasts a range of activities that are perfect for a day out from outdoor activities to Museums and learning centres.
A visit to Tilgate Nature Centre or Tulleys Farm is well worth the trip, both offering family activities throughout the changing seasons of the year. Tilgate Nature Centre is a small zoo within Tilgate Park and houses more than 100 different animal species from short-clawed otters and Utila spiny-tailed Iguanas to macaws and happy little capybaras.
With the airport comes a long history of aviation in the area that can be explored with a visit to the Wings Museum or Gatwick Aviation Museum.
If shopping is more your thing then the highstreets of Crawley will not disappoint. Spread around the area you can be sure to find all the high-street names that you are looking for as well as local and independent businesses. Next to the train station you will find County Mall. If you’re looking for something in particular or want to hide away for a couple of hours then this is the place to be.
