Our Travel blog
Littlehampton has plenty of attractions, the first we encountered being the local tradition of liberally sprinkling dog faeces all over their pavements to welcome visitors. It turned our walk into town into a lively game of turd hopscotch, which was fun.
The town looked a little run down but the good folk of Littlehampton are clearly not to be defeated and there is some sympathetic redevelopment around the harbour area and a charming coffee shop attached to a civic building overlooking the final stretch of river and into the sea beyond.
When we left they were in the midst of launching the lifeboat - Blue Peter 1. Far from the adrenaline fuelled near chaos we expected it all seemed to be a cheerfully benign affair until the boat eventually launched and sped off in a plume of spray into the open sea.
After the excitement we wandered along the harbour wall, regretted that we'd just missed the last showing of Kung Fu Panda 3 at the reasonably priced (all tickets £4) Windmill Cinema and then wandered back along poo alley to the site in time to watch The Simpsons over a cup of tea. Every time we return Mavis feel more like home.
