Walking, wine and coastal chic
West Sussex’s unique landscape means nature lovers don’t need to go far to find quality locally sourced produce from a dizzying choice of eateries.
All that fresh air needs sustenance whether it is a sumptuous hot chocolate from The Perch on Lancing beach to power you through to the next stop, or a full menu of delicious locally sourced produce, foodies will not be disappointed.
Bognor Regis, Littlehampton and Worthing all offer unique responsibly sourced dining experiences with sweeping seascapes - The Landing Place Bognor Regis, East Beach Cafe in Littlehampton or The Perch on the Pier Worthing - which view will be your favourite? Where will you sample a glass of Sussex sparkling wine?
For an extra special experience, and panoramic views of the coast, take a little detour up to the South Downs National Park to Wiston Estate Winery and Chalk Restaurant and try one of their award winning wine tasting tours, or - for the more active minded - an off-road bike tour and lunch with Marmalade MTB who offer guided mountain biking, skills and coaching.
Filled with food and fresh air, perhaps you’re keen to find out more about our Sussex Kelp Recovery Project. You can take marine conservation walks with Mulberry Marine Experiences. Or a trip with The Sussex Dolphin Project learning about our Sussex dolphins. The Chichester Conservancy is also a great source of information on the unique Protected Landscape of Chichester Harbour.
And finally, why not add a special bit of extra wonder to your trip - West Sussex offers the most spectacular Winter sunsets and sunrises so make the most of them with an early morning walk or a cocktail sundowner.
Once the sun has set, you can extend breathtaking views with a dark skies experience in one of the three dark skies reserves. Top spots for stargazing can be found in and around Chichester Harbour. RSPB Pagham is another popular venue and they sometimes run stargazing events. And if the stars aren’t shining on the night, you can always check out the South Downs Planetarium or visit during February for the Dark Skies Festival
