The West Sussex Lifestyle

There’s so much to enjoy in and around West Sussex, but if you’re not familiar with the local area, here are just a few of the activities you can enjoy.

Explore the West Sussex Coast

One of the greatest things about 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.

See the South Downs

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.

History and Heritage

West Sussex also has a variety of different historical attractions for you to enjoy in your retirement. Arundel Castle is worth a visit; an expertly restored 11th century castle set high on a hill with magnificent views of the South Downs. You can also visit beautiful manor houses on your country walks, like Wakehurst and Nymans; which is built around some interesting ruins.

Discover Chichester

Nestled at the foot of the South Downs, Chichester is an ancient city, surrounded by beautiful countryside, sandy beaches, fishing villages, great food and shopping spots, plus historical attractions for a varied day out in your retirement.
