Things To Do in Sussex

With 150 kilometres of coastline and acres of countryside, there are thousands of things to do in a visit to Sussex, whether you're a thrill-seeker, a shopaholic, a nature lover or a foodie - and since you're never more than an hour from London, the capital's delights can play a part in your stay here.

Most of West Sussex is made up of the beautiful South Downs National Park, but the whole of Sussex's countryside is a joy to behold. There are elegant stately homes, fairytale castles, colourful gardens and cultural connections including Charleston, where the Bloomsbury artists and intellectuals intertwined their lives and loves.

Get up close and personal with Hastings’ smugglers, Eastbourne's adrenaline junkies, Arundel's antiques and Brighton's gastronomy. Discover more about the county's towns and villages using our interactive map of Sussex.
