From the beautiful market town of Rye in East Sussex to the far west seaside town of Bognor Regis, Sussex has some of the very best beaches in England. Around 65 miles from London a holiday or short break to the Sussex coast is a great way to relax and take in the stunning scenery.
Of course there is also plenty to do on the water. Try your hand at windsurfing, sailing, kayaking, kite surfing .... in fact just about every water based activity as right here at your fingertips. For those who wish to stay a little drier, catch the ferry from Littlehampton to the spectacular West Beach and admire the unspoilt sand dunes with their rich habitat of wildlife and plants.
Stand on the battlefield that in 1066 Battle of Hastings was raging. Visit the historic Abbey built on the site of the Battle of Hastings.

How about a visit Bodiam Castle which dates back to 1385 and is often thought of as one of the most beautiful anywhere in the UK.
Times have changed and Brighton has changed too. Once famed for the "kiss me quick" and naughty postcards Brighton evolved and become a hub of many cultural and stylish offerings including palaces, museums as well as fine dining restaurants and independent shops selling antiques, fashion, jewellers and designer boutiques. There is a very cool vibe about Brighton now and is definitely worth a visit. Of course, there is still all the fun of the seaside on offer as well so it really is the best of both world.
