Haywards Heath, West Sussex
History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
Haywards Heath owes a large part of its prosperity to its position on the main London railway line to the south coast. That prosperity might never have come about if the neighbouring villages of Cuckfield and Lindfield had not refused to allow the railway to pass through them.
Just outside the town is Borde Hill Garden, with over 200 acres of superb gardens, composed of garden rooms, each with a distinct theme. In addition, there are woodland and parks, and over 80 champion trees.
