Pocket Guide: Historic Hotels Hotels in West Sussex

The name Sussex comes from the Old English meaning 'south Saxons'. Even today you don't have to travel far within the borders of West Sussex to feel like you're stepping back in time. Start your West Sussex holiday as you mean to go on by staying in one of the varied historical hotels in West Sussex, of which there are plenty. From 14th century coaching inns to 15th century spa hotels to 16th century country manor hotels, opulence is guaranteed, the only trouble you'll have is deciding which period in history you want to be transported back to!

Magical History Tours in West Sussex

Complete your historical holiday experience in West Sussex with a day out to match: Take your magical history tour into your own hands and explore the ancient county at your leisure. Who knows what you'll discover - an age old inn serving up a delicious menu of local seasonal produce or a working farm that's survived hundreds of years and offers guided tours. If you prefer a more organised day out then there's plenty of historical must-sees in West Sussex; this is 1066 country after all! Why not take a trip to Fishbourne Roman Palace which is easily reachable from Chichester? It houses the largest collection of Roman mosaics, has a Roman garden to explore and the fact it was unearthed completely by accident adds to the wonder.

Visit the Novium, a Roman bathhouse built above Chichester with fabulous panoramic views to reward you when you've reached the top. Travel forwards in time to the 18th century by heading to Uppark House and Gardens. Decide whether you belong 'upstairs' or 'downstairs', take a tour or relax while exploring the gardens. A historical hotel stay in the historic county of West Sussex means you'll be creating memories that you'll treasure for years.
