Amberley - ‘The Pearl of Sussex’

Voted the fifth  most desirable village in which to live in the UK by ‘The Times’

Amberley is a picturesque village set in the newly established South Downs National Park. With its many thatched houses and position by water meadows it appeals to cyclists, walkers, bird watchers, artists, historians or anyone wishing to enjoy a quintessential English village.  There are many special qualities that make it such an attractive and vibrant place to live or visit and it is those that the Society stands to protect and enhance.

We offer regular events including talks and exhibitions, an opportunity to join campaign groups and become involved in local initiatives to protect Amberley and its surroundings.   Use our site to explore the architecture, history, or wildlife in the area.  Become a member and get involved.
