centrally situated on the West Sussex Coast almost midway between the cathedral
city of Chichester and Brighton, one of the most well-known seaside resorts in
England, is ideally placed for exploring the district. The whole of West Sussex
and part of East Sussex (including Brighton), Surrey and Hampshire are within
twenty-five miles radius of the Village.
is a very busy place. It has a superb main shopping centre with a great variety
of shops, restaurants, professional offices etc, with the added bonus of
extensive free car parking. Lawned areas, flower planters and paved
walkways provide a pleasant environment for both residents and visitors. Three
other smaller shopping areas with a variety of shops and food outlets etc,
also serve the eastern, western and northern parts of Rustington.
Rustington's charm is due to a happy blending of the old and the new, from the
thatched cottages to the modern blocks of flats, houses and bungalows set behind
tree-lined grass verges, many of which are planted with seasonal bulbs and
flowering shrubs. Rustington can be cited as an outstanding example of how such
an old Village can grow into a large residential and shopping locality, whilst
still remaining a community with character.
