Midhurst is a quiet country town, well situated to be be used as a touring base for the area and for exploring the South Downs.
There are two old coaching inns in the town, and the South Pond is a feature of the town centre. Old timbered buildings remain today making a nice place to wander around. The town was the site of the estate of The Knights Hospitallers.
