Situated at a longitude of W0:32:33 and latitude of N50:48:06, parts of Littlehampton date back to Roman times,
although it is only since the 1670s that the town has had a quay. Once offering a cross channel ferry service,
the port has also been the royal dockyard for King Henry VIII.
Although the sea trade today is a shadow of its former times, there is always plenty to see and do in the vicinity.
Littlehampton is a good base for trips to nearby towns such as Arundel, Worthing and Bognor
