Selsey East Beach Views

Thrilling experiences, iconic landscapes and some of Britain’s most famous historic sites are all here in sunny Sussex, the heart of the South East. England’s great gateway to Europe has strong links with the Continent, with ferry services available from Newhaven and Britain’s second largest airport Gatwick both in Sussex. This South East county has been a route in to Britain for centuries, with the Romans arriving on the Far West coast at Chichester and the Normans landing in the East at Hastings and Pevensey. Ancient historic sites and spectacular seaside architecture are highlights, with gems not to be missed including the 1066 Battle of Hastings site and Battle Abbey, John Nash’s teapot headed Royal Pavilion at Brighton and Fishbourne Roman Palace near Chichester.
