Littlehampton waterfront has become one of the trendiest promenades in the UK, thanks to sculptural highlights such as the contemporary multi-coloured Longest Bench and East Beach Café with its driftwood-themed structure, designed by Thomas Heatherwick. Opened in 2007, the renowned East Beach Café is a delightful spot to take in the sea view. www.eastbeachcafe.co.uk
