Why move to Bognor Regis?
Bognor Regis was described in 1893 as ‘a quiet little place of eminent respectability’. Whilst it’s still perfectly respectable, in the 21st century there’s plenty to see, do and enjoy in our up-and-coming seaside town. Significant regeneration projects are in the pipeline, including the Bognor Regis Creative Digital Hub which is intended to deliver a flexible collaborative workspace with ultrafast fibre connection. We have sun, sea and sand; history and technology; shopping and culture; space to breathe and plenty to do.
Our favourite Bognor Regis attractions:
We’ve got some great beaches around Bognor Regis. East Beach is the most popular; it’s a long stretch of shingle with some sand exposed at low tide. There’s a long promenade running above most of the beach and there are plenty of food and drink outlets as well as windbreak and deckchair hire.
The Regis Centre is our well-attended performing arts centre and contains the Alexandra Theatre (a 357-seat auditorium) a café, shop and two studios. It attracts plenty of showbiz names and offers a wide variety of entertainment.
If the cinema is more to your taste, Bognor Regis can offer all the latest films in the beautiful retro Picturedrome cinema. If you can tear your eyes from the action, feast them on the original Victorian architecture.
If you want to keep the whole family entertained, head to Hotham Park a historic country park right in the centre of Bognor. It has wildlife, a miniature railway, crazy golf course, boating pool and various events are held there during the summer including open air concerts.
Marine Park Gardens to the west of the town is a lovely place for a quiet stroll through the beautifully maintained flowerbeds and formal lawns. There’s also a sensory garden for the hearing and visually impaired.
A traditional seaside town has to have a pier. At 107 metres long ours is rather shorter than its original construction due to storms and a fire in 1974. It’s still worth a visit for its fine architecture, lovely views, and, if you want to sample the nightlife, there’s even a nightclub at the end.
For a quintessentially British day out, head for the Bognor Birdman event. Competitors from all over the world dress up in all manner of wacky costumes and attempt to ‘fly’ off the end of the pier.
Bognor Regis Museum tells the story of the town with fascinating exhibits ranging from fossils to a vintage radio collection.
We can’t talk about Bognor Regis without mentioning the iconic Butlin’s resort, one of the most popular in the UK. Three contemporary hotels, a traditional fairground and the luxurious Ocean Spa make it favourite holiday choice.
