From castles to cathedrals, there’s lots to explore in the South! In this month’s blog, we’ve listed our top Autumn attractions in West Sussex.


Arundel Castle


While it might not be the royal abode of Frozen’s Anna and Elsa, this castle is equally spectacular. With well-preserved medieval features such as the Barbican, the Norman Keep and the Gatehouse to explore, you’ll be transported right back to 1067!




Tilgate Park


This magnificent park sits just a stone’s throw away from our hotel. Seek out the Tree Trail which features champion trees from all over the world, before stopping for a coffee and cake break at The Walled Garden Café. This park also holds more than squirrels and robins - the Nature Centre houses over 100 species of animals, including reindeers and racoon dogs!


Tilgate Park


Chichester Cathedral


There is no challenge in finding this historic attraction, as the spire of this magnificent 900-year-old cathedral dominates the horizon for miles around. Admire the breath-taking architecture, inside and out, before exploring the beautiful Bishop Palace Gardens.


Chichester Cathedral


Worthing Pier


Grab an ice cream and take a stroll above the waves along this treasured attraction. Stand at the end of the pier on the very edge of the United Kingdom and take in panoramic views of the Worthing coast and surrounding sea.


Worthing Pier




Journey through the enchanted Coronation Meadow of flourishing flowers, venture along the boardwalks in the tranquil Wetlands, and wander through the birch trees of Bethlehem Wood. There’s a habitat for all adventure seekers at this peaceful attraction.




We hope these attractions make it onto your Autumn itinerary! Our Gatwick hotel is in the heart of West Sussex, making it the perfect staycation location. We look forward to welcoming you.

Holiday Inn Express Gatwick Crawley Reviews



Absolutely fantastic hotel... Booked it as a package, a very economical package with Purple Parking via Holiday Extras on our way to California via Gatwick Airport. One of the cleanest, hassle free hotels I have ever stayed in and I completely, 100% will recommend them to anyone travelling via Gatwick and will certainly use this hotel again myself. Breakfast was awesome, just what we needed to set us up for our 10 hour flight.



Very comfortable stay. Breakfast very good and staff very attentive. Easy to find and great value for money. Very welcoming and nice quiet hotel. Staff great could not fault anything. Nice and handy for Gatwick.



We stayed here before our flight to Crete and got a Hotel & Parking package. It was easy to find, the staff were very efficient & friendly and we had a ground floor room, which was lovely & clean. Overall a nice relaxing stay before our trip, we would definitely stay again.



This hotel was lovely and had a lovely vibe as lots of the holiday customers were excited . The hotel staff were very chatty and friendly. We arrived at the hotel too late for food but were told we could get sandwiches made up. However, we were shattered so we didn't bother taking up this generous offer. Our room was lovely and had complementary free WiFi so the kids were happy. We left our car at the hotel for a week which was secure and looked after. When we returned at 2am the following week, the staff were just as lovely and helpful. We were very happy with the service and we look forward to doing it all again next year.



Just stayed in the Holiday Inn Express at Crawley before flying out of Gatwick Airport. We booked our stay via APH car parks. We had a really good stay and the hotel had nice, clean and modern rooms with a good comfy bed. We had the added bonus of a breakfast included & check in was nice and simple with overnight parking. Well worth it to be nice and fresh for the airport.


Buckie, Scotland

Stayed at Holiday Inn Express Crawley for 3 nights during an in-between London/Brighton break. The breakfast was good and had a variety of foods on offer. The hotel was very clean as were the bathroom/bedrooms!


Amsterdam, Netherlands

The hotel, the breakfast, the rooms, staff are great! Hotel is located near the centre of Crawley and offers various services! We were here with a large group and the service were great! Breakfast was fine and offered several things!



We stayed at Holiday Inn Express Crawley and paid for the Stay & Park package as we had an early flight the next day. I have stayed here on business before, however I forgot how good it was. Quick check in and everything was clean. We had dinner at the bar and the food was excellent, I could not fault a thing. Worth every penny!



We originally booked for one night but decided to extend our stay for another night. The staff were extremely helpful and only charged us the same rate for the second night as the first. The Hotel reception and lounge (where breakfast is) is lovely and modern. The rooms are clean and well designed and we couldn't hear any noise from the airport or roads. Breakfast was good and it wasn't too busy. Overall a nice hotel that's good value for money.


Cardiff, Wales

We picked this hotel again to park the car during our holiday and stay overnight when we got back as our flight did not arrive until early morning. 1st class service, excellent value and very helpful staff. Would highly recommend this hotel.
