Easy to reach and convenient for Gatwick Airport, Crawley was a post-WWII boom town. Unlike many towns of the London commuter belt, Crawley has its own significant industry and business. Business travellers have a range of Crawley corporate accommodation to choose from when booking through SITU.
Crawley is both a new and an old town. It has a rich history running back to the Stone Age. Incredibly, still standing today is Worth Church, originating from Saxon times. Centuries on the town began contributing to the success of the iron industry and found itself having to cope with the demand of those staying whilst travelling to London.
It was also a part of the post-World War Two ‘New Towns Act’. This aimed to take people and jobs out of the centre of London, resulting in a boom in manufacturing in Crawley. This new town offered its population employment, good corporate housing and a refreshing environment. As time went by, the service industry and retail also became major factors in the economy in Crawley. This all contributed towards present-day Crawley. As a result, the creation of Crawley city apartments and aparthotels was required to home the commuting and tourist population of the town.
Tilgate Park combines its stunning, relaxed setting with an option to get involved with a range of nature activities. Enjoy a relaxing, therapeutic afternoon whilst exploring the parks gorgeous lakes, lawns and garden. The park even has its own Nature Centre, where you can learn about the hundreds of different specie of animal that they house there. From our Crawley furnished housing you are nothing more than a short walk away from this stunning park.
Crawley also has a wealth of historic attractions. Built in 1683, Ifield Mill was restored back to working condition by local residents after its closure in the 1930s. The Mill attracts a bulk of visitors and the accompanying pond acts as a vital nature conservation area for a wildlife community. Hop on a train near our Crawley city apartments and you can be in Ifield in a matter of minutes.
Our Crawley serviced apartments can also house you near the historic St Nicholas church in the village of Worth. Throughout the years of providing locals a place for prayer, the church has marked many key moments in the lives of the community. Why not make the most of our Crawley temporary housing and short term accommodation by visiting all these attractions and much more the area has to offer.
