Looking For The Traditional British Country and Seaside towns
BOSHAM, BOGNOR AND PORTSMOUTH
(HMS VICTORY in PORTSMOUTH NAVAL HARBOUR)
Just a short drive from Bosham you can reach historic Portsmouth, home of the British Royal Navy, with this port you need a least a day to see all of the marvelous museums and sites. If you have ever wanted to know what it was like to sail during Nelsons time his flagship the HMS Victory has pride of place and is open to visitors. The dockyard has modern Naval ships and there are harbour tours where you can see these ships up close and it gives you a unique view of this place of British pride where Naval families have bid farewell and welcome back their love ones for many centuries. After a great day touring Portsmouth return back to Bosham to the Anchor Bleu pub for a great English pub meal and sample some real English Beer or Cider. Be careful and watch out of the High Tide near the Pubs car park as it is likely to flood as many people know to their cost. Seaside towns like Bognor Regis and Selsey have been entertaining families for years and although the seaside towns have changed over the years the still give glimpses for the British families on a typical low cost vacation town. For those younger travellers I would suggest trying Brighton as a seaside hot spot with it's many diverse bars and clubs.

GOODWOODNear to the Sussex Coast is Goodwood, site of racing of two wheels, four wheels and four legs. When touring around this area of Britain it is well worth checking out what events are taking place.
Brighton is more than the seaside, more than the city and the mix is more than double the fun. Fashionable, funky and loaded with style, Brighton & Hove has everything you could want from a trip to Britain - a royal palace, elegant Regency architecture, museums with more, laid-back beach life and superb shopping all this on the south coast of England, just 49 minutes from central London.
