Turning the tide at Bosham's beach

This coastal Sussex town is best known for its famous beach, where legend has it King Canute tried to turn back the tide. The pleasant beach Near Bosham Harbour is also where King Harold set sail from before the Norman invasion of 1066. Today, if you can manage to make the waves retreat, the beach is a good spot for a long walk. At high tide, though, the water laps at the feet of the village itself.

Visit beautifully preserved churches

With Bosham's rich history comes a rich vein of architectural heritage, mainly in the form of the village's Holy Trinity church. Here you can see one of the best Saxon chancel arches in the country. The church is depicted in the famous Bayeux Tapestry. Elsewhere, there is the historic Anchor Bleu Inn from 1740 and the Congregational church, built in 1837.

Collect some crafts

For those who love their arts and crafts, Bosham Walk Art & Craft Centre is a must. This collection of around 20 small shops is filled with artists, craftspeople and more. You can watch them create unique items and buy some glass wear, ceramics or paintings. You can even try your hand at a craft. Looking for a cheap hotel Near Bosham?
