Planning a Trip to the United Kingdom

It is little surprise that the stunning county of Sussex is establishing itself as a firm favorite for visitors from all over the world. If you are planning on visiting the UK from the US, Sussex is somewhere to think about visiting. In spite of this, you need to make sure you visit at the right time in order to truly get the best out of your holiday. Read on and you will discover some of the best times to visit Sussex in relation to what you want from your holiday. 



Sussex encompasses many different cities and towns. This is why it is a good idea to hire a car so that you can truly enjoy all of the areas. Make sure you choose a reputable company so that you can be sure you will be able to hire a car accident lawyer should something actually go wrong. You won’t need to find a lawyer in the UK in order to make a claim should an accident happen while on holiday. You can rely on the legal aid available here in the US. Hopefully, it won’t come to this, though. Nevertheless, it certainly does not hurt to be prepared.

So, when you decide to visit all depends on where you are planning to go. Let’s deal with the lively and colorful city of Brighton first. If you are thinking about visiting this seaside location then it is very much recommended that you do so during the month of May. There is an arts festival that takes place during the entire month and is considered to be the second biggest arts festival in the country. The month is rammed pack with theatre shows, music events, literature experiences, galleries, and other visual art occasions. Some of these events are even free to enter.

In addition to this, Eastbourne is a large town that draws in a wealth of tourists year by year. It has only recently excelled as a fashionable tourist resort. Eastbourne is much more than your typical seaside location. The pier is laced with stunning Victorian hotels and the ambiance is warm and lively. Considering the fact that Eastbourne’s main pulling point is the seafront, the best time to visit is during the summer months. Average temperature records reveal that August tends to be the hottest month of the year in the town, and thus this is a good time to considering having a vacation there.

Chichester is another fabulous place worth visiting in Sussex. What it offers is a lot different from the locations already mentioned in this article. Chichester is steeped in rich history. It is home to some of the oldest medieval buildings in the whole of Great Britain. If you are looking for culture and intriguing stories then you will love Chichester. The city is well worth a visit at any time of the year; however, July is a particularly popular period because the ‘Chichester Festivities’ takes place every year. This is an enjoyable three-week festival.

And finally, the list would not be complete without Hastings. The town hosts the battle site of one of the country’s most famous battles; the Battle of Hastings. The place is a popular destination for the May Day bank holiday because of the array of events that occur. The following two occasions are the most well known; the Jack-in-the-Green festival and the May Day run. The former includes a May Day parade and other traditional festivities. The latter encompasses thousands of motorbikes taking the long journey from Farnborough to Hastings.

When going on vacation it is pivotal that you go to your desired destination during the right period of the year. Hopefully, this article will have enlightened you to some of the best times to visit Sussex. Of course, this is just one of many places in the UK. However, it is certainly a good spot for family vacations. A lot of people want to visit London, and you still can - it is not too far! However, London is very busy all of the time, and so for families especially, being outside of London often proves to be the best approach. So, we hope that this has helped.
