A VERY Happy Birthday to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth

Blue waves lap onto the sandy beach of Bognor Regis

While we are celebrating Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth's birthday we're wondering if she remembers her holidays with her grandfather in Sussex by the Sea!

At just three years old in 1929, the young princess visited her grandfather King George V while he was recovering from an illness at Craigwell House in Aldwick, just west of Bognor Regis. Following the King's recovery the small seaside town was awarded the suffix "Regis" which we continue to proudly proclaim to this day.

Perhaps some of Her Majesty's memories might include the following simple pleasures:

  • Building sandcastles on the beach
  • Enjoying a paddle in the sea
  • Rock pooling on Bognor Regis beach or crabbing near Littlehampton Harbour
  • Spending real quality time with her much loved family - something we would all appreciate the opportunity to do
  • Perhaps even eating a traditional British seaside fish and chip meal (cooked with local catch of course!)

Today you can enjoy lots of Things to Do, and a great range of organised events listed on our What's On Calendar, 

However, it's increasingly important in the fast paced 21st century - to take time to enjoy these simple pleasures,so why not plan your own traditional 'get away from it all' type break in Sussex by the Sea?  If it's good enough for Royalty.......
