The South East England region
West Sussex is a green and pleasant county, where seasons and hills roll gently, all against the ever-shifting backdrop of the sea. Much of West Sussex is in the South Downs National Park. Whilst, there are no spectacular peaks or great dramas in this landscape its beauty lies in its rich quantity of space: a drive between sprawl-free villages may lead you up onto a big-sky point on the South Downs Way, or into ancient woodland.
The region boasts a spectacular coast line compete with a plentiful supply of natural harbours and beautiful coastal villages. As such, West Sussex is the natural home of the sailing enthusiast; you’re unlikely to travel more than a few miles along this coast without seeing a regatta in progress or hearing water slapping against the hull of a boat. Catch the action at one of Chichester Harbour’s regular meets (see www.chifed.org for dates), or, if spectating from the sidelines is not your style, Chichester Harbour Turtles (+44 (0)7863 567584) will show you the ropes, with sailing instruction. Alternatively, take a guided walk or cruise with the Chichester Harbour Conservancy (www.conservancy.co.uk).
The Cathedral City of Chichester also caters for the cultural enthusiast, steeped in history and the proud home of the Festival Theatre. The City is also great for a spot of retail therapy. In addition there are frequent racing or motorsports events at nearby Goodwood.
As with much of the temperate south coast, the area is pleasant to visit all year round.
