1. Re: Car Hire West Sussex

Welcome to the UK forums

Are you hoping to travel after the wedding?

If not you could just arrange taxis to and from the train stations and to your hotel.

A rental from Gatwick might be sensible, but you might not need it.

That's good advice. Unless you are planning to travel around outside London (where you definitely don't want a car) take taxis from Pulborough to Petworth and Petworth to the wedding.

A quick google of "Pulborough Taxis" brought up the following : iwestsussex.co.uk/local/…

I can also recommend Jakes of Billingshurst if you decide to travel from there instead - not much in it.

If you're going to Gatwick get your ticket from First Capital Connect or Southern - not Gatwick Express. It's cheaper. You could go a bit further on the train to Horsham (Southern only) and hire from this local firm I've used in the past - might work out cheaper : www.henfield-hire.com/listing.asp… But don't hire in London - you have to get out of town, which will be a nightmare.

As to sights, that's a whole topic in itself. Highlights include Petworth House and the town itself, the harbourside village of Bosham, The Weald and Downland Museum at Singleton, the tiny church in the middle of the Downs at Upwaltham, cricket at Arundel (another lovely little town to poke around on a wet day), Racing at Goodwood and some of my my very favourite pubs in all of England, which I shall happily advise you of, upon request !!!

If you want something cheaper than an airport rental you culd look at Guildford to collect a car without paying the airport extras. I think there is a Hertz at the station and an Enterprise a short taxi ride away.

About 30 minutes drive from Petworth depending on traffic.
