A rich history, sunshine and stunning scenery – Sussex has it all!
The county of Sussex is located on the south coast of England, and boasts approximately 90 miles of stunning coastline. Sussex shares borders with Kent, Surrey and Hampshire and combines a rich history with some stunning scenery; making it a beautiful place to retire. Officially the sunniest county in the UK, with a wonderful coastline and protected countryside,
The Sussex lifestyle
There’s so much to enjoy in and around the county, but if you’re not familiar with the local area, here are just a few of the activities you can enjoy.
The largest city in the county, Brighton (alongside the neighbouring Hove) is beloved by tourists, with its old-time seaside amenities, alternative shops and cafes, vibrant culture and historic landmarks; including the Royal Pavilion palace and its famed pebble beach.
The seaside town of Eastbourne serves as a microcosm of the county, with long stretches of pebbled beach (and accompanying pier), the sweeping South Downs countryside, a vibrant arts scene and historic and natural landmarks to see, including Eastbourne Redoubt and Beachy Head: the highest chalk sea cliff in the country.
One of the greatest things about to retiring in West Sussex is the abundance of coastal walks and seaside attractions. With beautiful stretches of beach at West and East Wittering, quiet seaside villages like Bosham and the historic seaside town of Worthing, you’ll find plenty to do in your retirement on the coast of West Sussex.
From rolling hills to bustling market towns, the South Downs National Park’s landscapes cover over 1,500km of breathtaking views and include some of West Sussex’s best hidden gems. See Devil’s Dyke, a 100m deep valley and a site of scientific interest, explore quiet country villages like Alfriston and Lewes and more.
