West Sussex is a beautiful county with much to offer the resident and holidaymaker. With sparkling seas along our coastline and the quiet beauty of the South Downs, our County appeals to many.

Some Hard Facts
Geography

Arun District is situated in the middle of the West Sussex coastal plain. To the north, the South Downs rise from 200 feet to a maximum of about 700 feet beyond the district boundary, before falling steeply to the broad Sussex Weald.

Arun covers an area of 22,811 hectares (85 square miles), has 23.3 kilometres (14.5 miles) of coastline in the south and almost half the district is included within the South Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Running through the District is the River Arun, which reaches the sea at Littlehampton and divides the area into two roughly equal parts. Between the foot of the Downs and the sea lies a flat coastal plain, where most of the District’s urban development has taken place.
The resident population of Arun, as measured in the 2001 Census, was 140,787, of which 66,228 (47%) were male and 74,559 (53%) were female.
Arun's three main towns
The three main towns within the District are Littlehampton, Bognor Regis and Arundel - which reflect some of the differences within the District. The urban areas of Littlehampton and Bognor Regis are on either side of the River Arun and have a deep and colourful history as British seaside towns. Bognor Regis boasts the record of enjoying more hours of sunshine in a year than anywhere else on the British mainland (according to Met. Office figures). Both resorts have achieved recognised sea quality standards in recent years and are popular visitor destinations.

The historic town of Arundel is situated at the foot of the South Downs, in an area made up of small, rural towns and villages. It is famous for its castle, cathedral and many other historic features. With an annual cultural festival of international repute, Arundel is a regular feature on overseas visitors’ itineraries

"Places to Visit in West Sussex"

West Sussex lies on the coast of central southern England, within easy reach of London, but a world away in its quiet beauty and charm. Historically cut off from the rest of the country by the dense Wealden woods, West Sussex manages to retain an aura of tranquillity and a sense of being away from the hustle and bustle of modern life.

West Sussex is a catalogue of English history. Iron Age Hillforts on the South Downs are reminders of the length of time people have been relying on the chalk hills for their livelihood. Today, many visitors walk up onto the Downs to enjoy the fabulous views that these ancient remains offer and to breathe the fresh sea air as it comes in of the Channel.

West Sussex is also home to magnificent country houses where cricket is still played on the grounds and the interiors contain exquisite furniture, porcelain, paintings and carvings. There are the portraits at Godwood House, hung in the rooms as they were intended to thanks to a stunning refurbishment that has brought the rooms back to their regency splendour. Petworth House has the best collection of paintings of any National Trust property, including Turner originals that he painted on his many visits as a guest at the house.

Other experiences that should not be missed are the exquisite long gallery at the Elizabethan Parham House, the wooded parkland at Stansted, and the William Morris interiors and Art and Craft Movement furniture and fittings at Standen House near East Grinstead.

If Gardens are your interest then West Sussex is the place. From the great showpiece gardens in the High Weald like Leonardslee, Borde Hill, Nymans, High Beeches and Wakehurst, to the specialist gardens like Highdown Chalk Garden, West Dean and Denmans West Sussex is full of the best in English gardening.

Over half of the County is protected countryside. The South Downs and the High Weald are popular with walkers and lovers of the traditional English pub where you can refresh yourself after your walk !

For horse-lovers there is racing at Fontwell and Goodwood near Chichester, showjumping at Hickstead, and polo at Cowdrey Park near Midhurst. The thrill of motor racing in classic cars brings alive the special meetings at Goodwood Motor Racing Circuit; and for the quieter life there are theatres, concerts and festivals to enjoy including the internationally famous Chichester Festival Theatre and Chichester Festivities. Vintage motorbikes at Amberley, rare breeds at the Weald and Downland, Romans at Fishbourne; there is a choice of over 150 events a year to enjoy
