Handcross has two public houses, The Red Lion (High Street) which was refurbished in 2010 in contemporary style, and The Royal Oak (Horsham Road), which is a more traditional "English" pub, offering home cooked food and cask ales. Handcross also boasts a Social club, serving the community.
Handcross Primary School, situated at the northern end of the village is currently undergoing extensive building works to increase capacity, due for completion in 2014. Opposite the primary school is Handcross Park School, an independent prep school.
Handcross Hill is a stretch of the A23 road which runs past the village. This part of dual carriageway is notorious for accidents due to it being on a steep gradient, being surrounded by trees and containing a number of sharp bends, those being unsuitable for a road of its type. The hill has proved to be dangerous enough to be widened and straightened by the Highways Agency and the cutting of the surrounding trees began overnight in mid-2011. The project is due for completion in late 2014.
