Since the beginning of the 19th century, the growth of seaside resorts has been a major factor in the development of the West Sussex coast and today the built-up area is almost continuous from Shoreham-by-Sea in the east to Selsey in the west.

Bognor Regis grew slowly in the first half of the 19th century but grew rapidly following the coming of the railway in 1864. In 1929 the area was chosen by advisors to King George V for his convalescence which led to its regal suffix, by royal consent. in 1958, the Bognor Regis town council announced that they had reached an agreement with Billy Butlin to take on the 39 acre Brookland site and develop a holiday camp, the site on which Butlins still stands today. The camp first opened to the public on 2 July 1960.
