West Sussex is a county in the south of England, bordering East Sussex (with Brighton and Hove) to the east, Hampshire to the west and Surrey to the north, and to the south the English Channel. Chichester in the southwest is the county town and only city in West Sussex, with the largest towns being Crawley, Worthing and Horsham.
West Sussex has a range of scenery, including wealden, downland and coastal. The highest point of the county is Blackdown, at 280 metres (919 ft). It has a number of stately homes including Goodwood, Petworth House and Uppark and also castles such as Arundel Castle and Bramber Castle. Over half the county is protected countryside, offering walking, cycling and other recreational opportunities.

The M23 Motorway runs from London to the south of Crawley. The A23 and A24 roads run from London to Brighton and Worthing respectively with the A29 a little further west ending in Bognor Regis. Other major roads are the A272 which runs east to west through the middle of the county and the A27 which does the same but closer to the coast. The A259 is a local alternate route to the A27 in the eastern coastal strip.
Gatwick Airport, which handled over 33 million passengers and had over 250,000 aircraft movements in 2011, is located within the borders of Crawley, and is the second largest airport in the United Kingdom. There is also a considerably smaller local airport at Shoreham and a grass airfield handling light aircraft and helicopters at Goodwood. There are three main railway routes: the Brighton Main Line, the Arun Valley Line and the West Coastway Line. The Portsmouth Direct Line serves and occasionally enters the westernmost part of West Sussex, although it has no railway stations in the county.
Some of the products we deliver in West Sussex include:
Weddings are supposed to be all about the happy couple on the best day of their lives. Wedding days are meant to be remembered for all the right reasons – such as the blushing bride, the handsome groom, the elegant setting and the delicious food. What really shouldn’t happen is for a wedding to be ruined by ripped table linen, dirty plates or there not being enough glasses to go around.
It’s commonplace these days for couples-to-be to want to take complete control of their wedding planning and costs. Our vision is to offer our customers a one-stop shop for everything from crockery to linen, and cutlery to furniture. All of our prices are available online, so that it’s easy to work out just how much the wedding hire you need will cost without having to go backwards and forwards getting quotes.
Whether it’s chafing dishes to keep food warm or double bottle coolers to keep beer cold, we’ve got you covered with our range of catering equipment hire. We have an extensive selection of ovens, fridges and cookers ready for use in a range of situations.
Some items, like our double door bottle coolers and display fridges are equally popular in an outdoor setting at events like festivals and fetes as they are for indoor events. These kinds of items are incredibly popular in the summer and availability can get stretched. In colder times there’s nothing better than a nice warm pie or pastry – and no better piece of equipment to make it than our turbofan ovens.
We stock appliances powered both by gas and electricity to give our customers maximum of choice. All appliances are inspected, cleaned and tested prior to delivery for peace of mind.
Whether it’s a party, a celebration or a huge blowout meal, getting your event right comes down to the right preparation. Getting your glass hire right can help make your event sparkle.
If you’re raising a glass to success then you can’t go far wrong with our Saxon Savoie champagne flutes. Like all of our glass hire, our flutes are individually checked and cleaned before being packed in special packing crates prior to delivery to you. We have a massive range of glasses for hire available so if it’s 50 or 500 guests drinking wine, cocktails or even beer we’re bound to have what you need.
We also have a wide range of bar accessories to help ensure that you’ve got everything you need to get your event going. Cheers!
