Sussex is located predominantly on the south coast of England with around 90 miles of shoreline from Camber in the east to Chichester Harbour Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in the west. 

Spanning 1,461 square miles, Sussex shares borders with Kent, Surrey and Hampshire. The South Downs National Park meets Sussex at its Hampshire border and stretches across more than half the county to Eastbourne.  Sussex includes 1066 Country which includes the town of Battle where the famous 'Battle of Hastings in 1066' took place and from which the area now takes it name, the Wealden, which takes it name from the Old Forest that once filled much of the centre and north of the area, and Mid Sussex much of which is designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

The most northerly point of the county is near Gatwick Airport which is just 23 miles from the coast and the gateway to South East England by air.  Sussex's geographical location with south facing slopes and a warm dry climate that makes it a prime slot for growing grapes and so the county is littered with vineyards who produce some of the best award-winning sparkling English wine in the South East.

West & East Sussex both have iMaps (East Sussex iMap | West Sussex iMap) designed for all lovers of the countryside. They show all the rights of way in Sussex, as well as long distance paths, shorter walks and easy access trails. West Sussex also offers a Cycle Journey Planner, this is an ideal opportunity to see the different cycle paths within the area.

Is Brighton in East or West Sussex?

Geographically, the city of Brighton is in East Sussex and is referred to as such for postal addresses. This cosmopolitan city by the sea is the only city in East Sussex, whilst Chichester is the only city in West Sussex.  In local authority terms, East and West Sussex are separately run counties and Brighton is independent of them both as a unitary authority responsible for all its local government services.
