What is Selsey Bill?

Selsey Bill is the prominent stretch of headland off the southernmost town of Selsey, on the Manhood Peninsula in West Sussex, eight miles south of Chichester. To its west and east, the beaches of Selsey are long and unspoilt, where you can enjoy the views out to sea. Many people know the name Selsey Bill from the lyrics of The Jam’s ‘Saturday’s Kids’ and the Madness song ‘Driving in my Car’.

What can I see and do?

From here enjoy fantastic views out to sea. The shore is perfect for walking and dogs are welcome all year round, except on East Beach where seasonal restrictions apply during 1 May – 20th September. A short walk to the East you can find Selsey’s Lifeboat Station and places to sample the famous Selsey Crab such as Potters, Julie’s and Selsey Willows Seafood.
