West Sussex

West Sussex is situated in the south east of England, it boasts gorgeous coastal towns brimming with history. There are a number of days out and sights to see, from the beautiful cathedral in Chichester to the majestic castle overlooking Arundel.

Shoppers will have a ball here as there are many towns with packed high streets and shopping centres - you can find anything in the small, personal boutiques and gift shops or in the variety of larger chain stores. Why not head into Horsham to see what's new in the shopping district?

Fancy a trip to the beach? Well you'll be spoiled for choice with the sandy shores of West Wittering to the bustling seaside towns of Worthing, Littlehampton and Bognor Regis.

If breath-taking scenery is more your thing then you'll never be far from some with the Southdowns just waiting to be explored in the south, and The Wield in the north, as well as miles of countryside spread all over West Sussex.
For a weekend getaway with the kids try Butlins in Bognor Regis, situated on the sea front and surrounded by traditional seaside shops, fairground attractions and eateries.

If you're looking for a bite to eat there is more variety than ever before, inundated with quaint bistros, traditional country pubs, fine dining restaurants and everything in between, you'll always find something to fill you up whatever your budget.
