    Running along the south coast of England, the county of Sussex is made up of three distinct geographic areas – a coastal plain on the edge of the English Channel in the south, the rolling chalk hills of the South Downs to the north, and beyond them the beautiful and lush wooded countryside of the Sussex Weald.

    Its geographical location means that the county has been the scene of several historic events – most notably the invasion which led to the Roman conquest of Britain in AD43, and later it was the site of the Battle of Hastings in 1066.

    The county is divided into three local government areas – Brighton and Hove, East Sussex and West Sussex. Brighton and Hove, and Chichester are the two Sussex cities.

    Things to do in Sussex
    The coastline is, quite rightly, a key focus for visitors to Sussex, but keen walkers also make the most of the rolling Sussex Downs; the South Downs extend for more than 260 miles, with the South Downs Way, a long distance footpath and bridleway, which runs for the full extent of the chalk ridge from Winchester to Eastbourne, a very popular route for walkers, cyclists and horse riders.

    On a nine-mile stretch of railway track on the border between East and West Sussex, the Bluebell Railway – a heritage line – runs steam trains between Sheffield Park and Kingscote. The railway is managed and run largely by volunteers, and was the first preserved standard-gauge, steam-driven passenger railway in the world to operate a public service when it opened in 1960. Its steam locomotives make it a popular location for television producers and film-makers.

    Top Destinations

    BrightonTogether with its neighbour, Hove, part of one of the most vibrant cities in the country, Brighton is the seaside resort with attitude. Once a popular destination for London day-trippers, like many coastal settlements, the town benefited from the coming of the Victorian railway in 1843. Prior to this, Brighton was already a successful health resort, making the most of its proximity as a fine location for sea bathing during the 18th century. The Royal Pavilion was constructed as a royal residence by the Prince Regent, the work starting in 1787. Richly decorated, and one of the most extravagant Chinoiserie interiors in the British Isles, it was built in the Indo-Saracenic style reminiscent of 19th century Indian architecture. No longer a royal residence, the Brighton Pavilion is now the main tourist attraction in the city.

    Brighton Marina – In addition to being the largest marina in Europe, with over 1,500 berths, Brighton Marina has a stunning waterfront vista, with a plethora of modern hotels, bars, restaurants and leisure facilities close at hand.

    Bexhill-on-Sea – Once the childhood home of the great Eddie Izzard, Bexhill is also justly famous for the fabulous De La Warr Pavilion, a recently-restored 1930s Grade One listed building that has become a centre for contemporary arts events and architecture. Taking its name from the 9th Earl who commissioned the iconic pavilion in 1935, the structure was the first public building in the UK to be built in the Modernist style.

    Rye – A small, historic town on the confluence of the rivers Rother, Tillingham and Brede, Rye is one of the Cinque Ports, and is well-known for its connections with 18th century smuggling.

    Battle – This tiny town is the site of the Battle of Hastings, a crucial turning point in British history, when William, Duke of Normandy defeated King Harold, and became William I – the monarch who is now also known to us as ‘William the Conqueror’. A fine abbey – Battle Abbey – was built to commemorate the battle, and was dedicated in 1095, almost 30 years after the historic event took place.

    Chichester – The home of a three week annual theatre, music and arts festival, the cathedral city of Chichester has some of the oldest buildings and churches in Britain. The historic Butter Market was designed by John Nash, while the fine structure of the Chichester Cross was built in 1501 and stands at the intersection of the four main routes through the city centre.

    West Wittering – A small coast village on the Manhood Peninsula, West Wittering, and its neighbours, East Wittering and Selsey, are set on Bracklesham Bay, an SSSI eight miles to the south of Chichester. The bay is particularly popular with sailors, surfers and windsurfers.
