Trains to Littlehampton arrive along the banks of the picturesque River Arun before pulling up a ten-minute walk away from the seafront, best reached with a charming riverside wander. The station building itself is a largely glass structure and a typical day sees over 128 trains pass along the tracks.

Since the 1760s, Littlehampton has been a popular choice for holidaymakers drawn to the town by its waterside tranquillity and the ever-popular pastime of sea bathing. The arrival of rail in 1863 expanded the town's appeal as working-class day-trippers from London replaced upper-class tourists, and by the mid-1930s over 250,000 tourists were visiting each year.

Fittingly, the town's motto is 'Progress'. Famous painters and poets have flocked to Littlehampton, including Lord Byron, Shelley and Constable, who no doubt turned up with their swimmers on. With two award-winning beaches and award-winning architecture - including the Stage by the Sea and East Beach Cafe - the promenade is the place to be for visitors. Be sure to keep an eye out for the longest bench in Britain; opened to the public in 2010, it can host over 300 bums.
