By road

There are several major routes that will take you into Bognor Regis by car, many of which come into the town via the main A27, which runs parallel with the coastline and along the bottom of the beautiful South Downs.  If you’re coming directly from the north, it’s a great opportunity to take in the views of this lovely National Park before making your way to the coast. Once through the South Downs, Bognor Regis is clearly signposted.

When coming from the west, follow the M27, which turns into the A27 near Portsmouth.  Follow the A27 until you get to Chichester and then take the A259, signposted for Bognor Regis.

When coming from an easterly direction, you can stop for a wander around historic Arundel and its castle, which is just off the A27, before turning south towards the coast. Depending on which route you take, you’ll travel through several attractive villages such as Ford, Climping, Felpham, Yapton, Aldingbourne, Barnham and Fontwell before arriving at Bognor Regis.

Find a place to park

There are several Pay and Display car parks to choose from around Bognor Regis, all of which have very reasonable rates and are within easy walking distance of the seafront. Three of the most central ones with access to both the beach and the town are the Regis Centre car park (Clarence Road, Bognor Regis PO21 1LE), the Rock Gardens (60 Rock Gardens, Bognor Regis, PO21 2LF) and the Gloucester Road car park (1 Gloucester Road, Bognor Regis PO21 1NU).

You can also park at Butlins and along the promenade. However, the convenience of the beachfront location means that it is slightly more expensive than the car parks in the town centre.
