A charming village very popular with visitors, who like to walk around to see its quaint houses and attractive front gardens overlooking the River Arun and its water meadows. At the western end of the village, behind the historic church, are the remains of Amberley Castle, which have been converted into a high-class hotel. In addition the village has two good pubs. Refreshments are readily available down by the river (subject to opening hours), where good views across the valley can be enjoyed.

Situated in the foothills of the South Downs 7 miles south of Pulborough, walking around here is very popular and the Station has a large car park.
