2. A stone’s throw from the coast.
The South Coast area of West Sussex offers opportunities to enjoy the sweeping beaches in villages such as Worthing, Littlehampton and Bognor Regis to name a few. West Wittering, pictured below, is one of the most picturesque beaches on the whole South Coast.
3. Incredible landscapes and views for walking.
Much of the County is taken up by the South Downs which form a huge part of the Southern part of West Sussex. It’s the third-largest national park in the UK with 4 market towns and 2000 miles of walks – including the well known South Downs Way.
4. Some of the best schools in the country.
If you’re planning your house move to West Sussex with children, you’ll probably want to know what schools are available to you. The South East is well known as one of the best areas for education, with West Sussex being home to 25 private schools and numerous state schools.
To run you through a few key statistics, you may be interested to know that for GCSE’S at Brighton College 93.9% of pupils achieved an A or A* in 2018/19. For A Levels across the county, Brighton College also ranked in at Number 1 on the table with over 80% of pupils achieving either an A or A*.
