Bognor Regis is a seaside resort in West Sussex on the south coast of England, 55.5 miles south-west of London, 24 miles west of Brighton, 5.81 miles south-east of Chichester and 16 miles east of Portsmouth.

A seaside resort was developed by Sir Richard Hotham in the late 18th century on what was a sandy, undeveloped coastline. It has been claimed that Hotham and his new resort are portrayed in Jane Austen’s unfinished novel Sanditon. The resort grew slowly in the first half of the 19th century but grew rapidly following the coming of the railway in 1864. In 1929 the area was chosen by advisors to King George V which led to its regal suffix, by royal consent. Butlin’s has been present in the town since the early 1930s when an amusement park and zoo were opened. A holiday camp followed in 1960 and this has more recently moved towards hotel accommodation with modern amenities.

Visitors to Bognor Regis will enjoy the main shingle and sand town centre beach – it has been awarded a 2017 Seaside Award again!

With lots of facilities, including RNLI Lifeguards during the summer months you’re just a short step from the main shopping centre, and the wide, flat easy access promenade is great for families, wheelchair users, cyclists and skaters.

Beaches in the neighbouring villages of Aldwick and Felpham are equally accessible but are usually quieter and great for relaxing and taking the sea air!

Watersports enthusiasts love this part of the UK’s south coast for sailing, windsurfing and other on-the-water activities. When the tide goes out, the flat sands on the beach are perfect for activities like beach volleyball or tennis.
