"Midhurst nestles at the centre of the South Downs National Park and makes the perfect base to get out and explore this beautiful landscape," Visit Midhurst said.

"[It has] unique heathland with wide horizons, rare birds, open chalkland and wildflowers galore.

"The surrounding countryside provides habitats for an amazing range of wildlife.

"On open chalk grassland, wildflowers like the honey-scented musk orchid and horseshoe vetch thrive, attracting clouds of butterflies in the summer, including the glorious Adonis Blue."
