Attraction details
Recommended length of visit: 1-2 hours
Owner description: The Heritage Exhibition and Viewing Tower is based around the harbour and seaside history of Littlehampton and the surrounding area, the Heritage Exhibition has interactive displays, historical artefacts and fascinating pieces of information to inform and amuse both adults and children. Do you know what ships were wrecked off the Sussex coast; why a customs house was built in Littlehampton in 1864; when the town first started to receive day trippers; what birds wheel above the river and float on its waters? Come to our exhibition and find out the answers to these and many other questions. As for our viewing tower, it has some of the best views in Sussex. It is said you can see the spire of Chichester Cathedral from the Upper Tower using the binoculars provided. Why not come and find out? Or bring your camera and step out onto the Lower Tower balcony to take amazing pictures of the River Arun that you would never get at ground level.

I visited the Centre at the weekend and was welcomed by friendly staff and a facility that has obviously considered who its audience will be. The cultural heritage musuem is comprehensively detailed and provides visitors with an abundance of information on how Littlehampton has grown and the role it plays in the area.

A small cafe has everything you need but the piece d'resistance is the viewing gallery on the top floors. This glass panelled room overlooks the River Arun and affords panoramic views of the village and surrounding areas. The highest gallery is only accessible by a round staircase but the lower viewing gallery can be accessed by lift for wheelchairs and buggies.

Definitely recommend visitors to the village to look and see the Look and Sea Centre!
