About the location


Chichester 8 miles; Pagham 10 miles; Bognor Regis 10 miles; Goodwood 11 miles; Arundel 15 miles; Portsmouth 23 miles.

Once an island (Selsey means ‘Seal Island’), the town stands at the tip of the Manhood Peninsula and Selsey Bill, the southernmost tip of West Sussex. The beach at Selsey is one of the best in Sussex and makes for a perfect family day out. Whether sailing, swimming, beachcombing or just paddling in the sea, this lovely coastline can be enjoyed all year round. Perhaps fishing for the famous Selsey crabs takes your fancy, or there are plenty of restaurants serving this local delicacy in the town. Selsey has a full and varied past, once a haven for smugglers and vagabonds, this part of the coast is now a quaint town with plenty of fisherman's cottages, cafes and sandy beaches. Another reason for holidaying in Selsey is the dark sky; as most of the street lights are turned off at midnight, you will see the sky light up with millions of stars, which is why the famous astrologer Patrick Moore made his home in Selsey. Only a short drive from Selsey and you can be walking the lanes of historic Chichester with its harbour, where you can browse around local shops, or enjoy afternoon tea after a trip to the cathedral, before an evening at the theatre. If racing is more your style then make for Goodwood, with three big events each year, and dozens in between. Also within reach are Fishbourne Palace and Pagham harbour, and scuba diving and horse riding can be enjoyed in the area. Whether you are looking for a quiet, relaxing break or a holiday full of adventure, Selsey is an excellent destination.
