The Duke of York Public House is situated almost in the centre of Sayers Common Village right upon the main roundabout, and also almost immediately opposite our car forecourt display area. It is an extremely popular venue with a friendly welcome and highly recommended by us for a 'refuel' by way of a drink, snack or hearty meal before your journey home. Sunday lunches are a speciality and well worth travelling for! They also have a spacious garden with a play area, slide & climbing frame suitable for children to explore.
After your journey to us, or whilst awaiting final preparaton of your new vehicle why not take a visit to Brighton Seafront, only 20 minutes away, where you will find the word famous Brighton Pier. In 1891, work commenced on a new pier to replace the original Chain Pier. Adorned with filigree arches and a few kiosks, Brighton Pier was opened in grand ceremony on May 20th 1899. By 1901, the pier consisted of a building with minaret corner towers housing dining, smoking and reading rooms and its first concert hall. By 1911, the concert hall had become a theatre attraction.
Brighton contains an unusual palace called the Royal Pavilion In 1783 the 21-year-old prince George fell in love with a Roman Catholic lady called Maria Anne Fitzherbert, whose previous two husbands had both died. He secretly married her in London, but this was illegal because he had not obtained permission from his father (who would not have allowed it because of a law that a prince could not become king if he married a Catholic).
Historic and hedonistic, elegant and offbeat, that is sometimes a description given to the 'Sussex South Downs' which are situated just a few minutes drive from our premises, you can be enjoying the views from high up on Devil’s Dyke in no time. From the 31st March 2010 this area becomes designated as a National Park. Nature reserves close by include Castle Hill and Ditchling Beacon, both home to orchids, butterflies and many species of birds, and in spring, Butcher’s Wood near Hassocks is famous for its bluebells.
