YHA Littlehampton is part of the redeveloped Fisherman’s Wharf YHA Littlehampton forms part of the popular Look and Sea centre located on the banks of the Arun river. A lot of work is being done for flood prevention and the entire seafront and adjoining areas is in for a major facelift.
The youth hostel has been in operation for 12 years but has only been open throughout the year for the last three years, previously being closed during winter months. YHA Littlehampton is very centrally located for transport, shopping and for the seaside and has been recently re-carpeted and painted.
