What’s in the Park?

Stanmer Park has lots to offer, including one of the park’s most unique features: Stanmer Village, a great example of an 18th Century working village, with Stanmer House as its main focal point.

Stanmer’s farmland, the Tea Rooms and the church and pond create a village that is one of the many reasons Stanmer remains one of Brighton’s most visited parks.

The House Cafe in Stanmer House itself is also open for food and drink in their cafe restaurant.

You could also head to One Garden, complete with nursery, restored wall garden, restaurant and more. Please visit their website for further information

At the entrance of the park is a children’s playground, open to all.
