The Angel Hotel :-
The Angel Hotel is privately owned and has been closely associated with the historic town of Midhurst and neighbouring Cowdray Estate since the 16th Century. It is a fine example of an old English stage-coach inn, sympathetically restored and upgraded. The hotel retains its heritage behind a neo-classical faÁade and many quality architectural features from its Tudor origins.
The front of the hotel overlooks the town and to the rear, behind flower filled courtyards and peaceful rose gardens, lie open meadows and the atmospheric ruins of Cowdray Castle.
The 28 bedrooms are all individual in character, some with four poster beds, separate sitting rooms, original fireplaces and views of the beautiful gardens and Cowdray Castle. All have ensuite bathrooms and many have wireless broadband.
The Angel has a choice of function rooms from the more formal Court Room to the garden room in the walled garden or the elegant Cowdray Room. We can offer the perfect surroundings for Weddings, Conferences and Dinners.
Try the Angel Hotelís highly acclaimed modern bistro for appetizing lunchtime snacks or itís delectable evening menu. In the relaxed and friendly environment of this popular restaurant, the Angelís chefs produce traditional dishes with a contemporary twist.

Brightly colored veils were worn in ancient times in many parts of the world and were considered a protection against evil spirits Greek and Roman brides for yellow or red veils (representing fire) to ward off evil spirits and demons. At one time, Roman brides were completely covered with a red veil for protection. In early European history, with the advent of arranged marriages veils served another purpose - to prevent the groom from seeing the brides' face till after the ceremony was over. Brides began to wear opaque yellow veils. Not only could the groom not see in, the bride could not see out! Therefore, the father of the bride had to escort her down the aisle and literally give the bride to the groom. Nellie Custis, the daughter of Martha Washington, is credited with wearing the first lace veil.
