Littlehampton is home to a cluster of relaxing sandy beaches, including the West Beach nature reserve, which you can get by hopping on to the town’s ferry.
There’s a number of great places to eat, offering everything from traditional seaside fare such as fish and chips to proper cuisine at restaurants like Mussel Row.
This is also the home of the longest bench in Britain, which stretches out over some 325 metres and is said to be able to seat around 300 people at the same time.
Things to do in Littlehampton
Harbour Park is one of the county’s most popular attractions – and it’s just a few minutes’ walk from Littlehampton station.
With rollercoasters, log flumes and dodgem cars, the park is ideal for thrill-seekers after a bit of excitement.
But there are plenty of more laid-back attractions too, such as a soft-play area, trampolines and crazy golf.
Eat at one of the restaurants in the park itself or head to the sandy beach next door for a picnic.
Look and Sea Visitor Centre
Discover Littlehampton’s fascinating seaside history just over five minutes on foot from the station.
Telling the story through a series of interactive displays and historic artefacts, the centre is well worth a visit.
You’ll learn all about the men who first set sail from the town’s harbour centuries ago and the ships that were wrecked off its coast.
Built in 2003 with a refresh in 2010, the centre makes an iconic addition to the promenade, plus there are some good restaurants and cafes where you can grab a bite to eat.
Climb to the top of the centre’s tower for unmissable views out over the surrounding area to as far away as Chichester Cathedral.
