A fun, festive day for all the family. Come along to Worth Park and enjoy the spirit of Christmas in a natural setting.

There will also be roasted chestnuts, mince pies and mulled wine for sale.
Worth Park was laid out in the 1880s by Victorian garden designers Pulham and Son, and is a rare survival of an almost complete landscape by this celebrated firm.
It has recently been restored to its former glory by Crawley Borough Council, thanks to a £2.42 million Heritage Lottery-funded grant.
The park has formal gardens, a stunning fountain, stone balustrading, a listed rockery, a wooded lake, a meadow, croquet lawns and a tennis court. Toilets and parking are available at our visitor centre, Ridleys Court.
Worth Park is in the neighbourhood of Pound Hill. You can visit the park by:
From Three Bridges station walk east along Worth Park Avenue and then left into Milton Mount Avenue. The walk takes 15-20 minutes.
