Nature and wildlife

Today’s increasingly digital world can sometimes make it feel like nature is way beyond our reach. Luckily, West Sussex is accessible, affordable and a fantastic all-round option for those looking to reconnect.

What do you look for when choosing a family holiday or short break? Deserted campsites where phones are strictly forbidden but roaring campfires are encouraged? Stunning countryside scenery with uninterrupted views of ancient downland? The chance to see birds of prey up close and stargaze as darkness falls? All of this is well within your reach in West Sussex.
