Places to visit in Winter?

I particularly recommend The Royal Pavilion: Open all year apart from Christmas Day.

The Pavilion is an exotic palace in the centre of Brighton with a colourful history.

Built as a seaside pleasure palace for King George IV, this historic house mixes Regency grandeur with the visual style of India and China.

Places to visit in Autumn and Winter?

Standen House - A Wonderful Arts and Crafts family home!

Designed in the 1890's, the house is decorated with Morris carpets, fabrics and wallpapers.It still has its original electric light fittings!

From late November, they'll be welcoming you into their festive home decorated for Christmas from Victorian through to modern day. There will be lots to see with the winter tree in the courtyard and Father Christmas in his grotto.

Saturday 24 November – Sunday 6 January, 11am-3pm

Go into the house past the lit fireplace in the hall before entering each room dressed for a different decade in which the family celebrated Christmas at Standen.

Once you have enjoyed the festivities in the house, check out the Arts and Crafts inspired gifts in the shop or spoil yourself with a warming drink and Christmas treat in Barn Café.

A Saxon Tower and Unique Spire at St Mary's Church!

There’s been a church at Sompting on the edge of the South Downs since before the Norman conquest of the 11th century. The oldest part of the building is the Saxon Tower, which has stonework that has been dated as pre-1000 AD.

C 9th Saxons built wooden framed Church on current site of St Mary’s Church.

A.D 960 Saxons replaced wooden church with flint church, including Tower, Nave and Chancel.

A.D 1020 Saxons extended flint tower to form unique Rheinish Helm (Rhineland Helmet) the earliest example of this type of tower in England

A.D 1080 Normans re-built Nave and Chancel along earlier Saxon foundations.

Open daily all year from 10 to 4. You can find the church in Church Lane, Sompting, BN15 0AZ. A 12 minute drive from Steyning over the South Downs.

Reasons to visit Steyning: Admire the wonderful listed buildings!

Steyning has nearly 150 listed buildings of architectural or historic interest. Most of these are of timber framed. Both their construction and survival suggests they were built for the wealthy.

You'll find most of these buildings in Steyning High Street and Church Street.

Visit Worthing and take a stroll on the pier!

Generations of holidaymakers and Worthing residents have enjoyed visiting Worthing Pier. British seaside piers date from the early 1800s. Worthing's pier was the thirteenth to be built in England at a cost of £6,500 by the Worthing Pier Company. The first pile was driven into the seabed on 4 July 1861. Designed by Sir Robert Rawlinson, the Pier was officially opened on 12 April 1862.

The Pier still continues to bring enjoyment to visitors and residents. The Pavilion Theatre sits at the northern end and the southern end pavilion has recently been totally renovated and returned to its former glory as a cafe & venue having been a night club for several years. An amusement arcade is in the middle of the Pier. It is a regular attraction for people to take a stroll along the deck and for fishing. Admission is free!

Reasons to Visit Steyning, near Brighton:
Explore Norman History!

St Andrew and St Cuthman's Church in Steyning was built by the Normans from the 1080's.

The size of the church is an indication of Steyning's importance. It was a major town in early Sussex. Admire the wonderful dog toothed decoration on the Norman arches inside the church!

Go down Church Street, off Steyning High Street, to find this church.

Just the weather for Shoreham Beach

This is where I'd like to be in the current very warm temperatures.

Shoreham Beach is a huge spit of shingle across the mouth of the River Adur. It's a fairly quiet place where you should be able to escape the crowds, even on a hot day.

Just a 10-15 minute drive from lovely rural Steyning in West Sussex.

Rosebud Cottage in Steyning has some availability for short breaks in late August and in September. Details at https://steyningcottages.co.uk/availability/
