Coastal West Sussex consists of peaceful beaches and unspoilt harbour towns. Shoreham-by-sea has a pretty port, an historic old town and a modern new town.
The old town centres around the church of St. Nicholas and is the site of a pre-Norman settlement. The new town also has some interesting sites, with The Marlipins Museum being the oldest non-religious building in Sussex.
The most famous coastal town in West Sussex is Bognor Regis. Bognor was made popular by Edward V after he stayed here to recover from illness in 1929. Today Bognor Regis is a traditional seaside town with an attractive esplanade and some interesting events.
The annual birdman competition takes place on Bognor pier, where you can watch hopefuls queue up with their flying machines. The competition is also held once a year at nearby Worthing, which is a quiet seaside town with an impressive pier and a vibrant town centre.
With a good mix of seaside fun, towns and villages, and some fascinating tales and legends, West Sussex is an interesting place to spend the half term dates.
Whilst every effort is made to ensure that these half term holiday dates are accurate, there are occasions when circumstances beyond our control may result in changes.
