Are you spending the summer holidays exploring everything West Sussex has to offer? Or are you heading for more exotic locations? Or a bit of both!

Tourism and leisure is a major industry in West Sussex, providing over 48,000 valuable jobs and contributing close to one billion pounds to the local economy.

West Sussex County Council works closely with businesses and partner organisations to support the industry and provide the right conditions for tourism to thrive. 

With the summer holidays just around the corner we’re keen to seek views from local residents about their plans for holidays, short breaks and days out over the summer months. We’d like to know if you’re travelling abroad, holidaying in the UK or planning a ‘staycation’.

We’re particularly keen to hear your thoughts on tourist attractions and leisure activities in West Sussex and if there’s enough on offer to meet your needs.   

Why We Are Consulting

Your views will help us provide valuable insight to the local tourism and leisure sector to help develop and improve their products and services.
