West Sussex is a county on the south coast of England in the United Kingdom. It borders the English coastal counties of East Sussex and Hampshire. This beautiful county is a thriving mix of stunning coastal scenery, rolling hills and ancient market towns.

With a contrasting coastline of around 40 miles, West Sussex is a great place to base yourselves for a holiday. It's easy to reach due to its accessible road and rail network and international airport, and you'll find a wide selection of quality accommodation whatever your budget.

Explore the breathtaking views and countryside in the South Downs National Park which reaches down to the coast. The area contains the seaside towns of Chichester, Bognor Regis, Worthing and Littlehampton or venture inland to soak up the atmosphere of one of the many historic castles and stately homes.

As half of West Sussex's countryside is protected, it has a fantastic range of outdoor activities for both residents and visitors alike. Its many beaches, both rocky and sandy, are some of the best in the country and offer sunseekers, rock-pool enthusiasts, walkers, climbers, windsurfers, kitesurfers and horse riders a great day out!
