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.

Ideal for families with primary age children or those interested in the area or view...At only £2 for an adult and £1 for kids this is an ideal Pre or post lunch stop, esp when combined with a visit to the lifeboat station. We spent 1.5hrs (mostly on our own!) exploring the 3 small floors of interactive exhibition about the area, the local legends and then more generally about the sea and the shore. However, the big win is the comfy story space and amazing view from the top of the tower. Finished off with lunch in the reasonably priced cafe below, which catered well for kids, with nice facilities.... This was a real hidden gem!

Over looking the River Arun and out to sea whilst eating a lovely lunchtime meal with my wife on a sunny winters day provided an excellent experience. The food was very good and reasonably priced, not the cheapest in the area but in this life you get what you pay for in this life. The service was very good too.

Been to the look and sea centre a couple of times for lunch in the summer and it's very nice. The location during summer is excellent.on a hot day you could almost be in Spain it feels so abroad.
Food is good, although you can't go in and Just have a beer, you have to have a meal if you want alchohol. It does get busy at peak holiday times in the summer at the tables outside. It's also very much in the sunlight.... So firstly wear your sunglasses as the glare is very strong and also put sun tan lotion on.

Great local history in a superb modern building, it's perfect for a family visit with something for all ages. The vews across the harbour, the river and the town frm the lantern room are superb and not to be missed.

There's also a good cafe on the ground floor and the staff are friendly and helpful.
