Felpham was home to the 19th century poet William Blake for several years and he referred to the beautiful local landscape in his epic poem as England’s “green and pleasant land”.
Felpham is just as lovely today. The village centre has a post office, a selection of small shops and some traditional pubs along with several examples of the old West Sussex style flint and stone buildings which are now safeguarded in a conservation area. The pebble and sand Felpham Beach is quiet and peaceful, making it ideal for sunbathing and watersports (including scuba diving, surfing, canoeing and sailing), and a promenade leads from the seafront to the neighbouring town of Bognor Regis. You can play tennis on one of the courts next to the promenade, or sit back in one of the beachfront cafés and relax with a drink while you enjoy the view across the water.
