AREA INFORMATION Southgate is a mostly residential area with a small scattering of commercial businesses and the Arora International Hotel which was built in 2001. There are two shopping parades, three primary schools (one being a Catholic school) and local pubs. Southgate is also home to St Catherines Hospice, providing hospice care to patients throughout West Sussex and Surrey. There is a skate park within Southgate playing fields, while Goffs Park off the Horsham Road includes woodland walks, childrens play areas, pitch and putt and a model railway. The 24 hour metrobus service passes through Southgate and Crawley railway station lies on the border adjacent to the town centre and offers frequent rail services including to London Bridge within 45 to 55 minutes. Other nearby facilities include the Hawth Theatre and K2 leisure centre. In our opinion Southgate is a great place to live for easy access to the town centre, railway station and County Mall, while benefitting from open spaces and easy access to the A23 and junction 11 of the M23.
