Holiday Summary

  • Travel Type: Coach

Bognor Regis has been a seaside fishing settlement since Anglo Saxon times. It became a fashionable resort in the reign of George III and has been frequented by royalty on numerous occasions. The resort is flat and has an excellent promenade walk. There is a pier and a delightful park, Hotham Park, which boasts a narrow gauge railway, putting green, crazy golf, tennis court and boating lake. On the beach between Bognor Regis and Aldwick lies the wreck of a floating pontoon - part of the Mulberry Harbour which was destined to be towed across to Normandy on D-Day June 6, 1944 and was washed up on the beach shortly after D-Day. The beach is predominantly pebbly but the water is clean and the quality of the light often remarkable. Inland the scenery is quintessentially English with the splendour of the South Downs, England's newest National Park, very close at hand.

Royal Norfolk Hotel
Situated in a delightfully sunny spot on the seafront with extensive lawns
and superb views over the English Channel, the Royal Norfolk Hotel is
an exceptional Regency building dating from the 1830’s. The location of
Bognor Regis makes it unique; not only has it been officially named the
sunniest town in Britain, it is very close to the South Downs National Park,
with its beautiful Sussex countryside castles and country houses all just
a short distance away. The hotel features a large restaurant, relaxing bar
lounge and an entertainment room with a dancefloor. The hotel also has an
outdoor terrace, where you can soak up the sun, enjoy a drink and watch
the world go by. There is a large car park and the lift serves all floors.
