A video view of Stanmer Park
View a video about Stanmer Park and Estate which is an excellent example of the vast open countryside available in Brighton and Hove – and remains one of our most visited parks. It is also the city’s largest park and is a unique example of an 18th century designed landscape. The current restoration project, financed by Heritage Lottery Fund and BIG Lottery Fund’s ‘Parks for People’, focuses on history in the park because its 18th-century design was a key period in British landscape history.
An example of an 18C working village
One of the park’s most unique features is Stanmer Village, a great example of an 18th Century working village, with Stanmer House as its main focal point. Stanmer’s farmland, tea room and church, create a village that is one of the many reasons Stanmer remains one of Brighton’s most visited parks. Views of Stanmer church here.
Stanmer Park is situated approximately 3 miles northeast of Brighton on the A270 Lewes Road, just before the University of Sussex. For public transport, bus service 78 to Stanmer Park runs hourly on weekends and bank holidays. The park is also very near to Falmer Railway Station.
