  • Good Italian in Arundel

    Arundel Restaurants

    This is a nice little restaurant and I was particularly fond of the homely feel of the decor. It's so much nicer than the rather clinical and bland appearance of so many (often chain owned) Italian restaurants in the UK now. They have a good wine list and some great value deals at lunchtime. The food was of good quality and the service swift and...

    I am amazed that as a native Devonian and naturalised Yorkshireman I should be the first to write anything on Sompting Church on VT - as it's close to Lancing and not far from Worthing in Sussex. Perhaps it's because it's on the north side of the A27 and the road signs for it are lamentable - but it's worth finding. It's a unique English example of the Rhenish style of tower and may well have been the closest Saxon builders could get to a steeple.

    Findon Sports & Outdoors

    One the nicest grounds in the county ,on the back slope of Church Hill ,just sit back with a beer in the sun and watch the slowest game in world sport. If your not from the Commonwealth ( or Canadian ) you won't understand whats going on ,but its the essential English experience. Deck Chair ,Sandwiches, as many bottles of Tanglefoot as the you can...

  • The Black Horse

    Findon Nightlife

    Pub/Resteraunt that serves mediocre food but has a nice lounge bar with a pool table. The main bar fills up with resteraunt goers and the dreaded office parties getting drunk and playing bar skittles ,but the lounge is o.k you can play pool or watch the cricket. Sports jacket and jeans ( urgh ) or the villanous " chino" rule the main bar.

  • Nepcote Green Sheep Fair

    Findon Local Customs

    Now more of a fun-fair than a sheep fair ,foot and mouth means there are only 100,000 sheep on the downs and there was one sheep for sale last year. However it 's still the centre of village life and is every 14th of September and dates from the 11th century.

  • Bramber Castle

    Bramber Things to Do

    I really like ruins and this remaining sliver of the medeival castle sticks out of Bramber village like a giant spike. The castle was destroyed during the Civil War but the battle for it is not really covered by any history.Reputed to be haunted by some poor sod who got walled up in it.
