Bognor is one of the oldest recorded Anglo-Saxon place names in Sussex. In a document of 680 AD it is referred to as Bucgan ora meaning Bucge's (a female Anglo-Saxon name) shore, or landing place, now a bustling town there are a range of shops and attractions for all and The Regis Centre Theatre has a varied and interesting programme.
Bognor Regis was originally named just "Bognor", being a fishing (and one time, smuggling) village until the 18th century, when it was converted into a resort by Sir Richard Hotham. Bognor was a part of the ancient parish of South Bersted in the county of Sussex, attaining parish status separate from South Bersted in 1828. Until 1894 it formed part of the Hundred of Aldwick, an ancient division of Chichester Rape. From 1894 to 1974 it was part of Bognor Urban District (Bognor Regis Urban District from 1929), and since 1974 it has been a part of Arun District
Bognor Regis is now also well known because of local attractions and events including the large Butlins Holiday Centre, Birdman of Bognor event, and its many festivals and vibrant music scene.
The beach is a wonderful place to visit to walk or just to sit and enjoy all year round.
