To The Great
Sussex Way

GREAT things to do in West Sussex, wonderful food and the best places to stay. We’re here to help you find your way.

From the Downs to the Dunes, our unique area of West Sussex is where you’ll find the very best of England, where vast areas of outstanding natural beauty and wildlife sit amidst the stunning rolling hills of the South Downs and breath-taking coastline. Nestled in one of the sunniest spots in England, we are just over an hour’s travel from London and just under an hour from international airport, London Gatwick.

The Great Sussex Way® covers the north of the Downs, taking in Petworth, continuing to Midhurst, travelling down to Chichester and across to the Manhood Peninsula, which includes Selsey and the Witterings.
