Littlehampton is a family-friendly, seaside resort with European Blue Flag winning beaches and an enviable position on the south coast of England. A brand new riverside development has injected new vitality into the town and provided extra attractions for visitors, especially watersport enthusiasts who flock to the marina during the summer months.
The Look and Sea! Visitor Centre hosts an interactive exhibition of the town’s maritime history as well as a five-storey tall viewing tower with magnificent views across the River Arun, out to sea and towards Arundel and the South Downs.
Harbour Park is an amusement park with a large variety of in-door and out-door rides and attractions,
The Long Bench was launched in 2010. Britain's longest bench twists and winds its way alongside the redbrick wall between Harbour Park and the iconic East Beach Cafe and its total structure measures 324 metres in length. It was 'highly commended' in the architectural review emerging architecture awards and recently nominated for the Conde nast Traveller Design and Innovation Awards 2011 as well as winning Best Coastal Cafe 2011 in the Coast Magazine Awards.
Across the river at West Beach are unspoilt sand dunes, rare plants and wildlife that are protected as a site of special scientific interest, as well as West Beach Cafe.
