West Sussex lies on the southern coast of England combining stunning seascapes and the rolling South Downs. An inspirational setting to the likes of poet William Blake, painter John Constable and novelist H G Wells, this beautiful rural county remains an unspoilt and unexplored part of England. Within easy reach of London, the channel ports, Gatwick and Heathrow Airports and hosting a range of welcoming hotels and bed and breakfasts, West Sussex provides the perfect location to ‘get away from it all’.

Combine a walk through ancient woodland and lush hillsides with one of the magnificent county estates such as Petworth House or Arundel Castle. Stroll among flower-filled gardens of Leonardslee, Borde Hill and Wakehurst.Savour the horse-racing atmosphere at Fontwell or Goodwood, take in a round of golf at Cowdray or relax on a sunset boat trip around picturesque Chichester Harbour. Explore the lakes and reedbeds at the Wildfowl and Wetlands Centre, imagine life in bygone days at the Weald and Downland Museum, wonder at the largest Roman mosaic in northern Europe at Fishbourne Palace or wine and dine first class on the Golden Arrow at Bluebell Railway. Beautiful West Sussex is just waiting to be explored.
