Sussex is in the south east of England stretching along the English Channel from Rye in the east to Chichester Harbour and Emsworth in the west with many fine blue flag beaches in between.
The chalk downland of the South Downs National Park covers a large part of Sussex from where they meet the sea at Beachy Head in East Sussex through to the Hampshire border near South Harting in the west.
Chichester is the cathedral city of Sussex and Brighton and Hove on the Sussex coast is considered to be one of the most cosmopolitan cities in Europe. Arundel and Lewes are two historic towns within the county both have imposing castles and are popular towns to visit.
The climate enjoyed in Sussex is above the average for Great Britain, which makes it ideal for visiting throughout the year.
The Sussex village of Camber has much to offer, with its beautiful sandy beach, which stretches for miles and safe bathing. The village has various small shops, a Post Office, two pubs, a wine bar and The Gallivant restaurant. A variety of activities can be enjoyed including kite surfing, kite buggying, surfing, land yachting, horse riding, fishing as well as numerous other activities both on the beach and nearby, including the wildlife havens at Dungeness and Rye Harbour Nature Reserve. Water sports are taught at Rye Water Sports lake, which is only one mile away.
The medieval town of Rye is just 5 miles away. There you can visit the Heritage Centre where you can watch the Town model's 'Sound and Light' show, which goes into detail about the history and the colourful past of Rye and its inhabitants. Or amble around the many antique shops in the Strand Quay and hunt out a bargain!
The town of Winchelsea is a ten minute drive away, and like Rye has a rich history and links to the days of smugglers. One of the many cellar tours that take place during the year is a worthy visit, and a chance to see parts of the town that are not normally on show. With far reaching views over the marshes and out to sea, it really is a pleasant way to spend a few hours and the delightful tea room is a great place to stop for refreshments.
Just 10 minutes drive away is the Rye Harbour Nature Reserve, where you can walk along the sea wall and out on to the marshes to enjoy floral and fauna. You can choose to walk out to Camber Castle, originally located on a shingle spit, and where once it protected the towns of Rye and Winchelsea before the sea receded. Although no longer open to visitors it is still a striking land mark worth a visit. The award winning, blue flag beach of Camber Sands is just a short drive away and has miles of sandy beach and dunes to explore. Or visit the rock pools at low tide on the pebbly beach at Pett Level, just a 10 minute drive from Rye.
The Towns of Hastings and Ashford are around a thirty minute drive away and here you can get main line trains to London, if you wish to explore the capital for a day. If you would like to take a day trip to the continent the Eurostar can be picked up from Ashford International station and trains to Paris, Lille and Brussels are available. Alternatively, the ferries run from Dover, just 45 minutes away or the Channel Tunnel from Folkestone a 45 minute drive.
