Things to Do in Sussex

There are numerous places to visit, such as Coombes Farm where you can go on an educational tour in one of the tractor trailers as you are pulled across 1,000 acres of land. Or perhaps your children would prefer Drusillas Park, a small zoo where you and your family can come face to face with exotic animals such as penguins, pandas and monkeys, before taking a ride in the legendary Thomas the Tank Engine.

For adrenalin-fuelled activities in Sussex, there are theme parks such as Harbour Park or treetop adventures like the nerve wrecking Go Ape for your young daredevils.

However, if it’s a romantic break for you and your partner, activities of interest may include a scenic walk into Bedgebury National Pinetum and Forest to gaze upon the scenic lake and trees, a real Sussex charm. If you enjoy visiting historic places, Bodiam Castle was built in 1385 by a man named Edward Dallingridge and is a fascinating place to discover. Although most of the interior was destroyed after the Civil War, you can still climb the giant towers of this monument and take in the beauty of the countryside from the summit.

The old cobbled villages of East Sussex are a real treat to visit, and you can watch the world go by from one of the local pavement cafes. But if you plan on visiting West Sussex, there are plenty of ancient churches and castles to explore.

Sussex has a wealth of landmarks worth visiting, including the Anne of Cleves House; the Arundel Jailhouse built in 1836; and finally Bignor Roman Villa, which was built in 1811.
