About West Sussex

The once County of Sussex can be located on the South Coast of England but is now divided into two separate counties, one being East Sussex and the other West Sussex. Bounded by the Counties of Hampshire, Kent and Surrey, 'Sussex' fronts the English Channel which seperates the United Kingdom from mainland Europe. Lewes is the county town in East Sussex and Brighton, one of Englands most popular holiday resorts which has been regarded as a ‘pleasure dome’ for centuries can also be found in East Sussex. The county town of West Sussex is Chichester and is famed for its rich heritage of historic buildings and picturesque countryside. The nearby town of Rye has delightful winding cobbled streets and old timber framed buildings and is regarded by many as the prettiest town in England. Hastings is an old fishing town and offers all the traditional amusements of the seaside, but retains much of the character from its colourful past. Rich in history, Hastings is famous worldwide for the 'Battle of Hastings' in 1066 between the invading Normans and the defending Saxons, the actual battle itself took place 6 miles inland from the town of Hastings, at a smaller town aptly named 'Battle' which is well worth a visit.
