Overview

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.

We were here on a visit to Littlehampton. The Look and Sea is at one end of the promenade and is quite visible from the amusement park. It was a busy Saturday lunchtime and had started to rain but we found a table. The service...More

This is rather an odd venue, difficult to categorise. The tower has magnificent views all round from the upper floor. "Museum" or "Historic" exhibits are strongly aimed at very young children, with grown-ups marginalised, which is a pity in a way as a lot of...More

I go there every year. The tables are laid with nice blue serviettes and it looks cosy. This year, the tables weren't laid at all, so that we were unsure if we should come in. We sat down and got the menu, we were asked...More

We stayed two nights in Littlehampton and had both breakfasts at the Look and Sea. The staff is nice and the food is well cooked with a nice view of the water.
