The Longest Bench in the World – A Place for Everyone to Take a Seat

We have all experienced the need of a bench after a long walk in the park, at the beach, or after some serious shopping, and it is ironic how it’s always occupied for some reason. But you definitely don’t have to worry about that in Littlehampton, West Sussex in Britain, because they have the longest bench in the world. It is located along Littlehampton’s promenade by the Blue Flag beach. About 300 people can sit on it at the same time, and there is no way it’s going to be occupied, there is always room for everyone.

The bench is very “flexible” and colorful, giving the promenade a joyful and young touch. It almost looks like a long rollercoaster and it is probably made with that kind of inspiration. It is 324 meters long, and is made out of hardwood bars that are put together. It was made by the design company Studio Weave, but they needed help from other organizations as well as children and other locals. Something that can remind of this is the Phonehenge that’s located near Myrtle Beach in South California
