There is more to the West Manhood Peninsula than just West Wittering Beach. I would highly recommend visiting Earnley Gardens for a short visit. My trip during this bank holiday weekend was the first time that I have been for almost 20 years, but it...More

Where do I start? 1. The price at £9.00 per adult is a rip off for such a limited attraction! 2. The attraction is pretty sparse in interest (a) The butterfly house is a rundown lean-to with a real air of neglect and very few...More
