> See all hotels in West Sussex

It is one of the Home Counties and is very close to London as well as having easy access to the seaside towns lining the south coast such as Brighton, Hastings, Worthing and Portsmouth. Book a hotel in West Sussex where the chalky barrier of the South Downs gently shelters wild woodlands, formal gardens, medieval towns and charming little seaside villages. West Sussex has it all, the perfect destination for a UK short break.

Town and city breaks in West Sussex

Admire the works of Sickert, Auberch and Moore at the modern art beacon, Chichester's Pallant House Gallery, widely thought to be one of the best collections of 20th-century British art in the world. The country town itself has a long history of settlement, going back further than even the Roman times. Chichester Cathedral now stands tall and proud above the sea of rooftops, bells ringing out majestically over the city. For a nice day out and a hearty pub lunch, the small and typical home county towns of Haywards Heath, Burgess Hill, East Grinstead and Horsham are certainly worth looking into. For a bit of history, pop into Steyning, the last place in England where a 'witch' was burnt at the stake. Crawley, with its large mall and variety of independent shops lining the maze of back streets, stands out as a place to shop and eat out, while booking a west Sussex hotel near Worthing will give you easy access to the seaside town renowned for its slow pace and relaxing atmosphere.

Holidays in the West Sussex countryside

With the signature luscious green of south-east England and home counties, the countryside of West Sussex is, as you might expect, a beautiful sight to behold. Booking a hotel in West Sussex will not only give you access to the remarkable coastline, but also to the South Downs which boast tremendous views and an Iron Age fort at Worthing. Wakehurst Place, the charming National Trust grounds surrounding an ornate public mansion, is certainly worth a visit by nature lovers and botanists alike, with its heavenly grounds and its ground-breaking Millennium Seed Bank - a project aiming to conserve a respectable portion of the earth's seeds to prevent further extinction. Fancy doing something atmospheric and exciting after dinner in your West Sussex hotel, head to Pulborough Brooks Nature Reserve at dusk to watch the barn owls swoop eerily over the moonlit grasslands.

Beach holidays in West Sussex

West Wittering beach has been brought into the limelight as Kate Moss's favourite haunt and is now a firm favourite among young tan-enthusiasts and sun worshippers, with safe swimming as well as wind and kite surfing. Book a West Sussex hotel and explore Worthing with its historic Marine Parade and beach. Walk the streets where Oscar Wilde and Harold Pinter drew their inspirations and breath in the fresh, clean sea air of the charming Georgian beach resort. The beach at Bognor Regis throngs in summer as Jet Skis race along the frothy coastline, the tide throbbing rhythmically. For romantic walks there is no better place than Climping Beach, a spot famous for its spectacular sunsets.

Attractions in West Sussex

No matter whether its for a family vacation or a short break away with your partner, booking a hotel in West Sussex will give you access to all sorts of things to do and see. Take a house and garden tour at Arundel Castle. At Earnley Butterflies and Gardens, kids can bond with the cheeky chinchillas, exotic birds, tropical butterflies and rogue reptiles.
