Well done Andy such an amazing picture. It is shame sites like this are becoming more & more rare.

The Spinica tower from Portsmouth Harbour Tour
4 stars
Stephen Luff(19th April 2008)

Once in The Docks you have so many things to see & little time. Remember the Harbour Tour is non-stop in & straight out again so you can plan your tour of HMS Warrior & HMS Victory around the set tours of the Harbour. It is good to know if your staying near or around Portsmouth you can come back & use same ticket to go on attractions you couldn't fit in on first day tour of The Docks.

The Lonesome gul
5 stars
Stephen Luff(16th April 2008)

Since I added this picture to the site friends have asked me "why?". Well for me it shows you in a big town one of the biggest in West Sussex just a short walk on the beach on a lovely day & your away. The sounds of the passing hectic life disapears into the sound of the sea. Looking up into the skies you may as well be miles away dreaming forgetting your worries for a while.

The Connaught Theatre
5 stars
Stephen Luff(16th April 2008)

I hear many complain of the theatre & it's small cinema screens but in these days places like this has to do these things to stay open. So remember don't complain just book up for a movie, a play or a panto & enjoy everything that IS theatre. I think The Connaught provides a great service to the town & for future talent in the area.

The Assembley Hall
5 stars
Stephen Luff(16th April 2008)

Please remember to support these places as every year it becomes more difficult to keep these places running. This hall provides so much for Worthing & it's surrounding villages we all need to do our bit to make sure places like this stay open. They offer a book of events taking place ask for one at the pier you'll be surprised what great entertainment it offers you.

Seeing in the new
5 stars
Stephen Luff(16th April 2008)

Many complained that this new site is out of place with Stein Gardens. I however feel it fits in well & brings some modern look/design to Worthing which is lacking in many parts. The complex is stylish & much better than the uggly old car park that once was on it's place for a while.

Chapel Road
4 stars
Stephen Luff(16th April 2008)

The shame about this road of shops is many have now gone & replaced with bars or fast food places meaning you have to go further into town centre to get what your after.

Worthing's Main Post Office & sorting office
4 stars
Stephen Luff(16th April 2008)

with so many post offices now closed this maybe only one you can use in your area. There is no free parking only NCP so best plan visit to post office. Here also is office for picking up parcels which were undelivered.

The Sussex Yeoman
4 stars
Stephen Luff(16th April 2008)

Handy point to know is over the road from The Sussex Yeoman is a row of shops that many in area use. Also another point this pub has plenty of front off road car parking.

The Twitterns
4 stars
Stephen Luff(16th April 2008)

Just a note for those wanting to use this short cut that is not on maps. You can follow the system that everyone calls the Twitterns all the way down to Ivy Arch tunnel that goes under railway line & this cuts out a lot of the busy roads. These alleys are much used by school children & postman & staff on way to Worthing hospital as it is the quickest way their.

The village fire station
4 stars
Stephen Luff(16th April 2008)

Just a note here...you don't have to wait till Broadwater has it's fair for special rides at Fire Station as it often throughout the year has open days with many interesting displays for all the family & raises money for charity too.

Broadwater Street East
4 stars
Stephen Luff(10th April 2008)

Ok admit here this is short cut back to where I live but I love to walk this end of Broadwater St East to see the very small old, various styles of cottages, of course just carry straight on & you'll come to the really lovely Ole House Of Home Inn such a lovely old style Inn with great friendly staff & really nice meals. You just don't see these styles of Inn's these days, not enough anyway.

Broadwater Road West (A24)
4 stars
Stephen Luff(10th April 2008)

These small parade of shops I know doesn't look much but to people who live in Broadwater we find we hardly ever need to travel into Worthing. Car park to shops is at junction on left of this picture & behind parade, you have also parking in front of shops too. Broadwater has changed over the years but we are lucky to hardly ever have many shops empty

Broadwater Green spot the kid
4 stars
Stephen Luff(10th April 2008)

a handy thing to know is from this view point right other side of green is Littlehampton Road which heads to another lovely village Thomas A'Beckett & leads all the way to Littlehampton going through centre of Durrington & top of Goring.

Broadwater Green
4 stars
Stephen Luff(10th April 2008)

This spot is where the finishing point to the Broadwater yearly carival, road is closed & people everywhere. The floats go on to green to be judged & fun fairs & stalls are all around & fire station nearby give rides in old engines. Really good day out for everyone. The A24 leads to Grove Lodge roundabout & heads either towards Brighton (right)or away towards Findon/Arundel (left) or go straight over to Hill Barn Golf course which entrance is second turning off roundabout & has car park & really pleasant walks (footpaths) to Cissbury Ring.

Broadwater Church in Spring
4 stars
Stephen Luff(10th April 2008)

this shot is taken from main Broadwater road & main entrance to the church.

Broadwater Church
5 stars
Stephen Luff(10th April 2008)

Funny how you here stories & never know if they are true. I say this cause where I stood to take this picture a teacher once told me (who once owned house behind where shot was taken) that under her house a tunnel went under the road & suddenly stopped at this point near the wall. At school you kind of believe teachers but even today 25 years later I still wonder if she was pulling my leg.

Broadwater Church
5 stars
Stephen Luff(10th April 2008)

It can be kind of strange walking by here sometimes as you see a graveyard expect silence but often here children screaming & playing as behind the tall trees is sports field to The Manor School. It is kind of good to know this otherwise you'd be spooked.

Broadwater Church
5 stars
Stephen Luff(10th April 2008)

In this picture you can just see the small little buildings/shops on outer wall of church that I mentioned in another comment on church. Many years ago at this point they had what was a triangle (not roundabout) at this juction to help traffic of horse & cart's. Pictures of this can still be seen in Worthing's history book & in collectable post cards. The village then was more cut off from Worthing, had trees running all along road & the Broadwater pub was in fact further back off road with space to stable your horses. Those were the days, don't know why I said that I'm only 46.

Broadwater Church
5 stars
Stephen Luff(10th April 2008)

I find this church such a good building to capture on film as you can get great shots from various view points. This view I'm sad to say doesn't capture the wonderful very small, very old shops that are on it's outer wall which is unusual for a church. I believe they are almost as old as church itself. In another picture further away you can see these buildings. I had friends from Holland visit & they found it very hard to believe people not only ran these stores but then lived in them. The stores are in use still but once entering you really get to know where expression 'can't swing a cat' originally came from he says in jest.

Manor Sports ground
5 stars
Stephen Luff(10th April 2008)

Hard to believe looking at this picture of PURE winter in Springtime today I waled this very same spot only 6 days later & sun out, lovely green & they are even getting grass ready for cricket season. Just hard to believe how quick it has changed. This sports ground is so useful for local as kids play ball games even family sit out around ground & when sports are on all free to watch. Remember not only cricket but European hockey played here too. Not far from Broadwater shops & has it's own car park plus street parking near to ground too.

Broadwater health centre
4 stars
Stephen Luff(8th April 2008)

Six old shop units were used to build this new Broadwater Medical Centre. Car park at rear, bus stop almost outside & chemist just around the corner 100 times better than the old surguries it replaces.

Broadwater Boulevard
4 stars
Stephen Luff(8th April 2008)

Broadwater Boulevard is one of two shopping centres within the village as just a little bit further on other side heading towards green is The Cricketers Parade. Both centres provide handy off road car parking. This site is built on what once stood the mansion belonging to Tate & Lyle & pictures of this can be seen in Worthing's old history books.

Beaumont Road Broadwater
4 stars
Stephen Luff(8th April 2008)

Beaumont Road is much used as it is short cut that many take to avoid main Broadwater road into Worthing missing out traffic lights. This road has in the past been used for Worthing Carnival route. One warning the junction from where this picture was taken can be one of the hardest to try & get out of in rush hour.

The Sussex Pad Hotel
4 stars
Stephen Luff(12th March 2008)

only used this place a few times & was amazed to find so close to fly over & very busy, heavy road traffic a lovely peaceful pub with tasty meal & nice setting at rear.

Built in 1889 The Parish Rooms in Broadwater just off Broadwater Green.
4 stars
Stephen Luff(12th March 2008)

At this hall amazing lots of various functions take place. Goes without saying the village jumble sale to name just one. It can be hired out also so charity fund raising often goes on or parties etc.

The Cricketers, Broadwater, West Sussex
3 stars
Stephen Luff(12th March 2008)

this is on the small side compared with other places to drink in village. It is very friendly & has many various fun nights including the pub quiz night where my friend comes from many miles to take part in. It still has 2 bars which is rare today with pub up grades & very busy during summer.

Broadwater Street East, Broadwater, West Sussex
5 stars
Stephen Luff(12th March 2008)

live not far from here & as a child always been interested in the deep history this small village has. You can look up in local library about deeds that went on over the years down this one street. All my friends who visit from a far want to see this small village street as it is so old & very interesting to see once read up on it's back ground.

The Parsonage Restaurant in West Tarring High Street, West Tarring Village, West Sussex
5 stars
Stephen Luff(12th March 2008)

Have to be truthful never tried this place but as not one for nights out in restaurants. I do know thou that everyone I know who has been their had a lovely meal & has returned.

The Vine Inn in High Street Tarring, Tarring Village, West Sussex
5 stars
Stephen Luff(12th March 2008)

another wonderful little pub real friendly, lovely food with beer garden out back. This place use to be well known many years ago for it's famous beer festivals that sadly had to end as it just got way too big. I usd this place many times with residents where I once worked & found it always so helpful & kind & adapted their menu for the residents I took. Sadly bad parking up High street but don't let that stop you trying this nice place.

The George & Dragon in Tarring High Street, Tarring Village, West Sussex
5 stars
Stephen Luff(12th March 2008)

such a lovely warm friendly pub to go to. Really looks the part of an old village pub with low beams within & a lovely warm fire going. Good parking at side really enjoyed my visit.

High Street West Tarring
4 stars
Stephen Luff(12th March 2008)

use to go up this High Street every day for 9 years to go to work at a home for Elderly that is sadly no longer their. Thing is never took it in how lovely this little village is till long after I stopped going their daily. It is ve4ry old & hardly any new buildings at all.

off the track
5 stars
Stephen Luff(12th March 2008)

even thou this is a lovely setting goes without saying if it has had any sort of rain wear good boots as this lovely little spot does get very muddy once over that gate.

Sun sets at the top
5 stars
Stephen Luff(12th March 2008)

have to be said this is my favourite of the day. see I try to take these shots as much as I can but with sun right at you, you just don't know if pic has come out or any good till you get home so I was really pleased to see this.

Main path leading to top of Highdown
4 stars
Stephen Luff(12th March 2008)

the pic also in with these called OFF THE TRACK is in fact straight ahead of this path. It is amazing so many paths with different surprises of nature.

Catching the wind on Highdown Hill
5 stars
Stephen Luff(12th March 2008)

named this catching the wind as it was strange that day as sun was out, dark clouds coming apon us & where this pic was taken real strong winds coming in what we later found out was storm that hit UK that night. Below is 2 large garden centres & 2 small ones with Littlehampton road A27 running along. Strange it is less than a minute away from here but so peaceful.

View from the top
5 stars
Stephen Luff(12th March 2008)

Taken on 9th March I thought I take this pic as it shows the storm clouds gathering which came & hit most of the UK on 10th March

Stephen Luff(12th March 2008)

The view you see in photo is looking towards north in distance is Cissbury ring.

Many colourful wild plants grow amoung the trees on top of Devil's Dyke on the Sussex Downs.
5 stars
Stephen Luff(6th November 2007)

This at first glance doesn't look much but it is this patch of trees with natural plants growing within that splits Devil's Dyke in two. One side all cafe/bars & picnics (North) other side kite flying (South)

Looking North from top of Devil's Dyke on Sussex Downs (between Brighton/Hove)
5 stars
Stephen Luff(6th November 2007)

Had to laugh at this picture as so many people who have viewed this scene ask me if it is view used in Vicar of Dimbley. Had to point out that NO cause as you see NO church. Still a wonderful view one of many while walking around Devil's Dyke.

East side of Devil's Dyke where kites fly & families play. The South Downs
4 stars
Stephen Luff(6th November 2007)

This shows you that no part of this area of Sussex Downs doesn't get un-used. Much goes on around the cafe/bar & in front of it, this is behind car parks & many enjoy family get togethers & as you see in picture flying their kites as wind does pick up through this part of the Devil's Dyke plus of course a wonderful view. This area is separated from main part by trees with lovely wide plants & flowers growing within.

Arundel Cathedral, Arundel, West Sussex
4 stars
Stephen Luff(6th November 2007)

This can almost be missed as it is tucked out the way on the left far side of the Cathedral.

A picture of Findon
4 stars
Stephen Luff(6th November 2007)

This is typical of the style of cottages found in Findon some you can tell were once shop fronts. As Findon has explanded is is nice to know the main village itself has remained almost unchanged.

The Black Horse, Findon Village, West Sussex
4 stars
Stephen Luff(22nd October 2007)

As the Black Horse is on entrance from main Worthing road in to village as you can imagine this is most popular out of all mainly due to it's position. Has big car park does many functions & serves great food. Not heard yet of anyone not enjoying their stop here.

The Findon Manor Hotel, Findon Village, West Sussex
5 stars
Stephen Luff(22nd October 2007)

what can I say? this place is as classy as it looks with wonderful top grade service. A real peaceful retreat to stay it your visiting area but don't want to be in town.

The Gun Inn, Findon Village, West Sussex
5 stars
Stephen Luff(22nd October 2007)

This is Gun Inn looking from car park looking into it's garden & main entrance. So peaceful surrounded by walls & trees

The Village House, Findon Village, West Sussex
4 stars
Stephen Luff(22nd October 2007)

just the other side of the road from The Gun Inn yet another pub never really been in I know I should but suppose prefer The Gun Inn we're all different aren't we?

Village shops in Findon village, West Sussex
4 stars
Stephen Luff(22nd October 2007)

Typical village style shops, over the years this has changed hands & sold various different things but still holds the original village look. Just across the road up a small hill is a lovely deplay of small cottages really well looked after & all giving character to the village

Findon Village Hall in Findon Village, West Sussex
5 stars
Stephen Luff(22nd October 2007)

just screams village life over the years I imagine how many meetings & summer fates have gone on over the years within. Even on the day I was passing through they had something on.

One of the many lovely houses & cottages found in Findon Village, West Sussex
5 stars
Stephen Luff(22nd October 2007)

This is just one of the wonderful cottages in various shapes, sizes & designs found in the small village of Findon. Even thou Findon valley has got much larger with more roads, shops & housing the village part stays mostly untouched by time.

Findon village 'The Gun Inn'. Findon, West Sussex
4 stars
Stephen Luff(22nd October 2007)

In a small village this is one a few pubs but one I like the most. Been going here since I was aloud to really as coming down off the Cissbury Ring this is first pub you see & after walking for hours around the ring don't want to travel far to rest. This serves great food & wonderful friendly service, has a garden to sit in & car park too

Arundel Cathedral in West Sussex
5 stars
Stephen Luff(22nd October 2007)

This pic would of been one of my best of the day if it wasn't for the fence getting in where building work is going on for a new garden display to open in 2008 in Arundel Castle.

Arundel Cathedral, Arundel, West Sussex
5 stars
Stephen Luff(22nd October 2007)

Had to use my friend again in a photo to capture the height on this impressive Catherdral

Arundel Cathedral, Arundel, West Sussex
5 stars
Stephen Luff(22nd October 2007)

tried to capture more the upper part of the alter more than below as I found the windows above truely amazing. Made me wonder how many come in & ignore such work

Arundel Cathedral, Arundel, West Sussex
4 stars
Stephen Luff(22nd October 2007)

not easy to get a shot like this as inside in parts the Cathedral can be very dark to capture. I was lucky that day after getting permission to start filming & taking shots the sun came through the amazing windows to help give such shots.

Arundel Cathedral, Arundel, West Sussex
5 stars
Stephen Luff(22nd October 2007)

It was this guy & his family the main reason I was in Arundel that day to take this picture as a dear friend had travelled from another country to study,film & take a close look at this families history. So I found the day very interesting.

Arundel Cathedral, Arundel, West Sussex
4 stars
Stephen Luff(22nd October 2007)

sad to say not ever heard these pipes play but I guess they can be very impressive especially with height of the Cathedral.

Arundel Cathedral, Arundel, West Sussex
4 stars
Stephen Luff(22nd October 2007)

This entrance looks so amazing it is pity really visitors go in through side door.

Arundel Cathedral, Arundel, West Sussex
5 stars
Stephen Luff(22nd October 2007)

Up close to the Cathedral i often wonder how scary this shot would be at night, very Gothic looking especially the detail higher up on building

Arundel Cathedral, Arundel, West Sussex
5 stars
Stephen Luff(22nd October 2007)

Taken from within Arundel Castle grounds I find this picture one of my favourites & often use it for my wallpaper on PC as it is so colourful. By looking at pic it is hard to belief that it is same building once inside as the height is amazing from within.

Fitzalan Chapel
4 stars
Stephen Luff(22nd October 2007)

Looking at this chapel now to how it was before work first started on it many years ago it is amazing how wonderful the restoration work has returned this to it's former glory. There is a book that gives a view back in time to what this same view once looked like.

Fitzalan Chapel
4 stars
Stephen Luff(22nd October 2007)

As the courtyard is so small & surrounded by high walls it is hard to capture the beauty of this courtyard in one take.

Fitzalan Chapel
5 stars
Stephen Luff(10th September 2007)

Fitzalan chapel was founded on the feast of Corpus Christi in 1380 by Richard 4th Earl of Arundel. In the reign of Henry VIII the college was dissolved; the chapel & other buildings sold to the family & has been private property of the Earls of Arundel & Dukes of Norfolk ever since.

Fitzalan Chapel
5 stars
Stephen Luff(10th September 2007)

This monument separates the Lady Chapel from the Fitzalan chapel & is of John 7th Earl of Arundel 1407/8-1435. Beneath is an emaciated cadaver, a gruesome reminder of mortality by the master of The Clarence Tomb

View from the bridge in Arundel, West Sussex
5 stars
Stephen Luff(8th September 2007)

If coming by train don't let the size of bridge or look of station fool you. This is a big train station under this bridge & has the London Victoria train stop regular. I saw 16 carrage long stop & still have room left on plateform unlike many stations nearby. Has a massive car park too.

Riverside in Arundel, West Sussex
5 stars
Stephen Luff(8th September 2007)

You can get to all this via Mill Road just over the bridge which also has car park. Further along are much other things to do with the family so worth the short walk.

One of the many little lanes found in Arundel, West Sussex.
4 stars
Stephen Luff(8th September 2007)

a lot of these fine buildings/shops have changed for the worse over the last past few years. They use to hold many stores which had fine rare items for everyone now 50% have all gone into coffee shops such a shame & great loss to the town.

Arundel Cathedral, Arundel, West Sussex
4 stars
Stephen Luff(8th September 2007)

This gate will be the entrance to the now under construction Earl's garden within the castle openning 2008 based on 17th century classical designs.

St. Martin's Chapel
4 stars
Stephen Luff(8th September 2007)

Please be careful climbing the narrow stairs to these small rooms I'm fit & still struggled with the cramped stairwells. Great to see but not wise to carry lots of items doing so.

Fitzalan Chapel
5 stars
Stephen Luff(8th September 2007)

This garden surrounded by high walls & palms is so peaceful no wonder it is also called The Garden Of Humanity. There is a lovely white iron garden bench to just sit & take it all in.

Fitzalan Chapel
4 stars
Stephen Luff(8th September 2007)

this is a more darker red & gold but this room is so dark as you enter you hardly see the detail so I had to adjust pic so to pick up the design of the carpet.

Fitzalan Chapel
4 stars
Stephen Luff(8th September 2007)

The real one is black & gold but I had to adjust so you can read the names of those within the Chapel.

Entrance to Arundel Castle, Arundel, West Sussex
5 stars
Stephen Luff(8th September 2007)

Known as THe Lower Lodge this is main entrance & exit to the Castle on Mill Road. You'll find off road car park opposite with holds coaches too & Free car park spaces along the long length of Mill Road.

Blackfriars Arundel

Stephen Luff(8th September 2007)

This is facing the Mill Road which also leads to boating hire/trips, open air cafe, bowls & further along lake with lovely selection of wild life.

Blackfriars Arundel
5 stars
Stephen Luff(8th September 2007)

This was thought to be part of a bigger building & was used by one of the countesses. It was miss named for some years till it became clear what it was. The history to this is on display at front of building. Extra info is next to this is an old Scout hut used throughout the year for craft stalls & well worth a look round mainly open every Sunday.

Arundel gardens, Arundel, West Sussex
5 stars
Stephen Luff(8th September 2007)

don't let this picture fool you into thinking the garden looks wild as I took picture lower to get shot of tops of colours when you walk around you'll see it is very well kept with some lovely displays.

Arundel gardens, Arundel, West Sussex
5 stars
Stephen Luff(6th September 2007)

colour so outstanding. what some people don't know is just outside this greenhouse they often sell veg grown from The Duke's garden as well as often having a small cafe outside. I was tempted myself but didn't fancy carrying runnerbeans around the castle (he laughs).

Arundel Castle, Arundel, West Sussex
5 stars
Stephen Luff(6th September 2007)

I have taken many shots like this one before but the colour on the day makes this my favorite.

Arundel Castle, Arundel, West Sussex

Stephen Luff(6th September 2007)

shame you can only just see it...what? the moon still out above the castle at around mid day. This lawn where pic was taken is known as The Lower Lawns.

Arundel Castle, Arundel, West Sussex
5 stars
Stephen Luff(6th September 2007)

These towers impressive as they are have a good use in the days of the castle. If you pay extra for the tour of the upper bedrooms you'll see every single bedroom has a secret back exit in case of having to get away. Many lead down these impressive towers to safety.

Arundel Castle, Arundel, West Sussex
5 stars
Stephen Luff(6th September 2007)

Took this to try different views. Tried a few shots through trees & like the results. Arundel Castle has some very old impressive trees some real anciant cork oaks some Ginko Biloba that have stood for many years.

Arundel Castle, Arundel, West Sussex

This is near to the Duke Henry entrance where tourists arrive into courtyard. Please remember once you enter this part NO photos & switch off mobile phones.

Arundel Castle, Arundel, West Sussex
5 stars
Stephen Luff(6th September 2007)

So easy to miss this view as you get two paths one going straight into castle to start tour or this one to take a long walk around the grounds first which many do not. It was here I came over pheasants & a cute little field mouse washing.

Arundel Castle, Arundel, West Sussex
5 stars
Stephen Luff(6th September 2007)

The only dark cloud to threaten our day which soon passed over. This pic made me think of "where's Mel Gibson or someone?" as it looks like a scene from a movie

Arundel Castle, Arundel, West Sussex

This is where you find some tourests hanging around hoping to see any of the Dukes family. While their a car with his son & wife did drive in.

Arundel Castle, Arundel, West Sussex
5 stars
Stephen Luff(6th September 2007)

When none of the family are home this is open & a good idea to use as your exit from castle as it comes out on top of High Street & just a short walk from the Cathedral.

Arundel Museum & Heritage Centre
5 stars
Stephen Luff(6th September 2007)

Now when your in Arundel High Street try not to forget this place it is further up the hill & can be easy missed by the the attractions of side streets filled with lovely shops. Near here to the the now much talked about Arundel Ghost Tour on same side of street so look out for the sign it is down a very small alleyway.

Arundel Castle, Arundel, West Sussex
5 stars
Stephen Luff(6th September 2007)

In here is not only the main castle rooms but staircase to the upper bedroom tour which is only an extra £1 to view on selected days but well worth that £1.

Arundel Castle, Arundel, West Sussex
4 stars
Stephen Luff(6th September 2007)

I thought "very clever" when I saw these goats over 20 in all. Why pay so many gardeners to keep the motte & battlements neat & tidy when goats will do the job just fine. I later found one right up the battlements chomping on grass near the castle walls. They can sure climb these animals. These are not only wild life you see in the grounds that day saw pheasants & a small little field mouse.

Arundel Castle, Arundel, West Sussex
5 stars
Stephen Luff(6th September 2007)

I found in the Castle being a history fan it was so easy to stand still take in the views & imagine what life was like. This view is of the very first original part of the castle so I stood thinking of what may of gone on in everyday life over that bridge which leads to The Keep. Knights on horse back or something?

One step through & into a massive amazing garden. At the moment it is ruined by building work going on which will be the new Earl's garden opening in 2008 with great displays which will be on the left of this gateway.

To the left of this is the gift shop worth a visit. Worth also reading up on the Howard family, books are on sale not only in the castle but here at the Cathedral.

I love this little shop it sells merchandise from Arundel but lots of other unusual collectables many I've hardly seen elsewhere.

looking at this pic and how small the road is it is no wonder many I ask say they can't find Devil's Dyke. You can so easy miss the turning & be many miles out your way.

sure need a good head for heights as looking down to take this pic is like looking at a sheer drop on a very steep hill. Worth the visit to walk round & take in the views but wear good hiking boots.

Brighton Royal Pavilion 2005

Stephen Luff(20th August 2007)

strange how for so many years I passed this without going in. Now when guests come visiting I take them here often. So looks out of place in Brighton but the place won't be the same without it. well worth the tour inside & take time to hear the history of the place.

4 stars
Stephen Luff(20th August 2007)

in this pic you can see the chalk path heading off towards Chantonberry Ring which lost it's glory in the great storm when almost all it's trees on top were felled. still worth parking your car & doing the hike.

one of my favourite views from this old fort on the Sussex Downs. It is nice walking up their coming across wild life such as grazing sheep or cows. This view is first you see after climbing the shaded path to the top.

Broadwater's carnival is in July just a week before Worthing's not always in the same scale but pretty close. It too puts on fun fair, stalls, market special attractions throughout village.

Stephen Luff(18th August 2007)

this pub is so often forgotten being tucked away amoung housing that people pass by. Thing is this is a friendly, warm place where they do put on various things for their regulars. It's not long had a refurb so looks nice inside & out too. Must support these small pubs in our community

if you make it this far in harbour you might as well book yourself in for the tour as the boat trip is well worth the money in any weather.

Stephen Luff(18th August 2007)

seems a long walk, walking the harbour walls out to sea but well worth it as the view all around is amazing. I've seen people do this walk in storms to but wouldn't recomend it.

Brighton Marina with plenty of nearby shops & big cinama complex
4 stars
Stephen Luff(18th August 2007)

best to remember when visiting this place that it is still growing with more housing complex & more shops. It's worth going just to see the marvel of how they built such a community out of the cliffs.

In a SAVE OUR PAVILION campaigne a few years ago Ken Dodd himself stood to save it saying it is best place he has ever appeared. Few years later you can still see him twice a year come to sold out shows at this wonderful theatre.

5 stars
Stephen Luff(24th July 2007)

The Dome caused problems for Worthing for many years over who will pay to refurbish the site. Now the town is so happy that a private company has done a wonderful job of making it look inside & out like it did when it was first built all those years ago. Really worth a look at the craftsmenship gone into this wonderful cinema. This pic is out dated as it is now looking so different with it's new face lift.

Stephen Luff(9th July 2007)

Over the years I've grown up in the town seen this place change so many times it seems to adapt to the times. Use to be swimming pool, then band stand now has shops, play ground for kids & has a cafe over looking the sea. I like visiting it's gift shop has some really good gift ideas at great prices.

The Gardeners Arms Sompting
5 stars
Stephen Luff(9th July 2007)

what gets me is this place was in all the papers over the complaints of a train carriage being added to it's side, build into the pub. After a ong fight everyone was happy with alterations. Now you ask & no one remembers it's their. It is so different & worth the visit to have a meal in such a setting.I have to pass this on way home from work & it is so hard with the wonderful smell of really great food coming out on to the road.

Never known a place as busy as here. I think it cause it is managed so well & caters for so many various tastes. I have to pass it on way to work at nights seeing it's many functions. quiz nights, disco/karaoke,jazz nights, Elvis nights, big screen football & a lovely big extention on back for private functions. It amazes me at a time when the pub trade is suffering you'll never find the place empty. Does tasty food too & a good price.

I like this view mainly cause just up the hill beside the church is a great trek up over the Sussex Downs. I've often gone up their & hiked all the way over the Cissbury ring taking in some wonderful views. It has lay-bys to park cars for the motorest too.

You really don't need to go into Worthing centre with such a good range of village shops here. It has from big stores like Woolworths to new BIG medic centre & 2 supermarkets, great little pubs with lovely hot food, cafe's & Cricketers Parade just off picture on the top right filled with more shops. Plenty of Banking & car parking to be found behind stores.

I feel lucky to have this parade of shops so nearby. You'll find it a halfway place for many heading into town centre for a night out as so much range of food tastes is catered for here from fish & chips to Indian or Chinese to name just 3 of the many shops that serve good hot food & most deliver. Has off licence & mini market as well as cafe. It has it's own parking bay just off main road which is helpful.

Stephen Luff(20th June 2007)

Only sorry the pic doesn't show size of the green. I will have to try take pic from another side. This green is used for so many things most popular is the day Broadwater has it's special day & has floats arrive onto the green & fire station which is near by has open day & has old engines on display & rides for the children. It is strange to see cars going round the green mainly ignoring the cricket that goes on mainly un noticed. The green originally was a lake with a school where now the cricket pavilion stands.

Worthing's central indoor shopping centre it has been butt of jokes for many years but in recent years has had thousands spent on it, Has had a few big named stores move in & now holds studios for Worthing very own SPLASH RADIO on it's second floor.

Stephen Luff(18th June 2007)

I know it says Stein Gardens but this is more than a garden, land left in a will many years ago only so it can be used for those people of Worthing it holds car shows & FREE live concerts to name just two. Other times as it is so near beach many use it to sit relax & have picnics on.

Stephen Luff(17th June 2007)

Arundel is full of history & these shops must be most new looking but blend so well into this wonderful place. Arundel has changed over the years to cater for more tourists but I still find something magic about the place & it's little back streets.

Stephen Luff(17th June 2007)

this is very near to my house so I often hear the sound of the big hockey games & wander in to watch the cricket. The grounds are well looked after & when not in use often seen owners of dogs exercising their pets. Plenty of seating is around the ground to just sit & take in whatever is going on for FREE

5 stars
Stephen Luff(17th June 2007)

this place is often used by coach parties & day trips from residentual homes. I've been here many times for good friendly meals then a sit outside to take it the surroundings. Ideal for a family trip with plenty of parking.

5 stars
Stephen Luff(17th June 2007)

Devil's Dyke is often remembered for it's narrow dangerous roads, hand gliding & bikes using it for rat runs. I like it to be remembered for it's beauty, it's impressive views & a place to go for complete peace & quiet. This pic I was so happy with seeing the early mist rise in the distance to reveal miles of wonderful views everywhere you looks

5 stars
Stephen Luff(17th June 2007)

I was lucky this day to get these pictures inside Nelson's cabin as just before I got their it was closed due to the HMS Victory still being in Navy use & had a admiral's meeting. To walk in & be able to capture the history on film was amazing, I had been a few times before & could only talk about what it was like. Anyone interested in our history/past should visit this fine ship & carry on supporting Portsmouth docks.

HMS Warrior is such an impressive tallship to tour around & has so many helpful volunteers who'll talk you through some of it's most interest history & facts. I was on the tour with Marjon & know we both really loved that day out & recomend anyone to go & support Portsmouth Docks

Stephen Luff(16th June 2007)

It was a strange feeling walking into this cabin aboard the Victory. I walked in alone & the quite got me & I saw the waistcoat over the chair & it felt strange like time had stopped & any minute Nelson would walk back in. This is what the tour does brings it home to how it must of been back then.
