Selsey is a unique seaside town, rich in history and wildlife, at the most southernly tip of West Sussex, 8 miles out into the Solent. With more sunlight hours than anywhere in the UK it is a true destination.

Steeped in the tradition of fishing and internationally famous for its seafood, Selsey is one of the last remaining towns on the South Coast where fishermen can be witnessed bringing in the fresh catch.  

Selsey’s miles of natural beaches play host to a huge variety of wildlife both on and off the shore, and the RSPB reserves of Pagham Harbour and RSPB Medmerry are home to countless species of birds and wildfowl. In warmer months, visitors may even glimpse the seals from which Selsey’s name originates.

With more sunlight hours than anywhere in the UK, and bathing water rated as excellent, Selsey is a great spot for a day in the sunshine. Explore the rugged landscape on foot or on bicycle. Enjoy a fabulous Selsey sunset and admire the impressive dark skies made famous by the late Sir Patrick Moore who lived in the town. Other notable Selsey residents and events can be sought out on one of the town’s Blue Plaque Heritage walks.

Many of the town’s fishing fleet crew the Selsey Lifeboats, which have been a feature of the town since 1861. The lifeboat station can be found on the shore at Kingsway and is open for visitors.
