Top 10 ten places to visit in South East England - West Sussex


Littlehampton is a lovely seaside town with a good mix of restaurants and bars and a guarantee of some of the best sunshine in the UK.

The Look and Sea Visitor Centre hosts an interactive exhibition of the town’s maritime history as well as a five-storey tall viewing tower with magnificent views across the River Arun, out to sea and towards Arundel and the South Downs. Visit the Harbour Lights cafe and evening Bistro, and check out the gift shop.

Across the river at West Beach, you will find the unspoilt sand dunes and rare plants and wildlife that are protected as a site of special scientific interest.

For the kids, there are fantastic bathing waters and lots to do on the European Blue Flag winning beaches. For countryside lovers, the South Downs are only minutes away, with charming village pubs dotted along the country roads.
The East Beach Cafe (pictured) on the seafront was designed by Heatherwick Studios. The welded steel shape is designed to look as if it were a piece of flotsam washed up onto the beach.
