Bognor began life as a fishing village until the 18th century, when it became a seaside resort. Bognor is located just 20 minutes (by train) from Chichester. Being a coastal town, Bognor welcomes thousands of visitors yearly to explore its shops, beach pier, amusement arcades and seafront.
Bognor has plenty to offer seaside visitors, such as the local restaurants, Pier, crazy golf on the seafront, museums and more! Bognor is known for its charming Promenade Train and Hotham Park; there is plenty to do.
Bognor is a unique town known for hosting the 'International Bognor Birdman' competition. The competition involves contestants dressed up as birds attempting to fly off the end of the pier into the sea for prize money. We wouldn't recommend this unless you are a natural at flying...
Each summer, Bognor is the home to Bognor Rox- a free music and art festival held over two days that attracts over 30,000 visitors.
