We’ve journeyed through Sussex from A to Z to show how great this part of the world is…

A is for Alfriston. One of our prettiest villages.

B is for Brighton. Everyone’s favourite seaside destination.

C is for Castle. There are plenty of these in Sussex.

D is for Ditchling Beacon. One of the best high points in the county.

E is for Eartham. Another stunning part of Sussex.

F is for Football. The Amex is a beautiful venue.

G is for Goodwood. If racing is your thing…

H is for Hove… actually. Brighton’s calmer sibling.

I is for i360. The observation towers offers views across Sussex.

J is for Jolyon. The racing driver is from Horsham.

K is for Kent and East Sussex Railway. A popular attraction in Sussex (…and Kent)

L is for Lewes. The famous bonfire takes place here.

M is for Mermaid. Undoubtedly the most photographed street in Sussex.

N is for Nature. Lots of that to see here.

O is for Opera. The Glyndebourne Festival Opera takes place every year.

P is for Pubs. There are some lovely places for food and drink.

Q is for Qatar Goodwood Festival, a.k.a. Glorious Goodwood.

R is for Rivers. This is one of our most iconic views.

S is for South Downs. The National Park that rolls through Sussex.

T is for The Wey & Arun Canal. A place for scenic boat trips.

U is for University. Sussex’s universities have educated a few famous faces.

V is for Views. It’s difficult to pick a favourite.

W is for Weald. The High Weald area is picturesque to say the least.

X is for eXtraordinary scenes. X was a difficult one, we’ll admit…

Y is for Yurts. There are some quirky places to stay in Sussex.

Z is for Zoo. Enjoy a family fun day out at Drusillas.
