A Warm Welcome awaits you in Sunniest Bognor Regis

Sunny Bognor Regis is a great place for family days out, a seaside holiday or short break. Our wonderful beaches have regularly flown the European Blue Flag and Seaside Award for being clean, safe and with good facilities. There are beachside showers for bathers and the Foreshores Office runs a Kids Care scheme, to help keep your children safe.

What is the real Bognor Regis like? Our visitors tell us it is laid back, friendly and great fun! Apart from our great sand and shingle beaches, you’ll find plenty to entertain kids of all ages. You can ride the land train up and down the promenade or wander onto one of the oldest Piers in Britain, which also hosts one of the biggest and busiest nightclubs in West Sussex. 

Below, you will find a number of resources providing information about visiting Bognor Regis.

Tide Times, Water Quality and Weather Conditions in Bognor Regis

The tide times tell you what time the water will be at its highest point (high tide) and at its lowest point (low tide).  Tide heights are shown in metres. The tide height is important because sometimes the sea will come up higher (further up the beach) than normal at high tide and lower than normal at low tide.  Information, including tide times, can be found on the Met Office website (click on the image below).


As recently as 2022, Bognor Regis’ beaches have won Keep Britain Tidy’s Seaside Awards.  These are awarded to the best beaches in the country and the flag is a symbol of quality which ensures visitors are guaranteed to find a clean, safe, attractive and well-managed coastal area.

There are two webcams located on the east and west side of Bognor Regis pier from which you can view the weather and sea conditions in real time.  Click on the image below to open a new website where the live streams can be viewed.


Bognor Regis is also home to the largest seaside holiday centre in the South of England – the famous Butlins Resort (you will see it at the eastern end of the Promenade). The resort has some fantastic facilities and you can either base yourself there or just get a day pass to make the most of the attractions.

Have you ever tried boogie boarding? It’s like surfing, but the board is smaller. You just lie down and let the waves carry you in – great fun, buy a board locally and have a go.

Bognor Regis also has two well-equipped leisure centres where you can play tennis, squash, badminton or swim. There are bowling greens in Waterloo Square & Swansea Gardens, where tennis courts can also be found. An 18 hole golf course can be found 10 minutes away in the village of Felpham, if you prefer more genteel exercise.

The Promenade is flat and stretches 2.5 miles from Felpham (to the East) to Aldwick (to the West) and is fantastic for either a stroll, cycle ride or run. It also hosts a fitness trail, which is great fun to follow on a summer’s day, and kiosks along the way allow for much-needed breaks for Ice Cream and other seaside delights.
