In East Sussex, rolling hills and gorgeous countryside, interspersed with delightful villages, meet an extensive coastline, pebbled beaches and imposing white cliffs, with a number of thriving towns thrown in. East Sussex is the home of individual, independent businesses and, to top it off, a large chunk of it is designated as a national park, ensuring that it will keep its unspoilt nature.

Things to do in East Sussex

Residents are spoilt for choice in regards to how they choose to spend their leisure time. With such a variety of things to do in Sussex every visitor will find something to treasure.

For those looking to enjoy the great outdoors, the South Downs National Park covers a significant part of the county, providing a beautiful backdrop to any activity and ensuring that the area remains unspoilt.

The Seven Sisters Country Park combines two of the main selling points of East Sussex: the countryside and the coast. Located near Eastbourne, it is made up of 280 acres of breath-taking white cliffs and grassland, popular with birdwatchers as well as walkers and cyclists. With views over this striking landscape, as well as over the snaking Cuckmere River, is the Cuckmere Valley, a very popular National Trust owned expanse of grassland, with a wealth of wildlife. Nearby Beachy Head, the highest chalk sea cliff in Britain, has the most amazing, far-reaching views and is, as such, a popular place for walkers. Much further inland is the Ashdown Forest; 6,500 acres of protected heathland, which is open to the public and is said to have inspired the children’s stories of Winnie the Pooh.

At the other end of the scale, Brighton has so much for the culture seeker, the shopper and the foodie. Wander the Laines, visit the Royal Pavilion or settle down in one of the independent cafés and while away a lazy weekend, just watching the world go by and devouring the delicious fare on offer.

With so much packed into the city it can be easy to forget the glorious beachfront that curls along the coastline. Hugely popular in the summer, Brighton beach is ideal for summer swimming and lounging, or even enjoying a refreshing drink along one of the many charming cafes, bars and restaurants that are nestled on the waterfront.

Why we love East Sussex

East Sussex has some of the most beautiful and varied countryside in Southern England including the South Downs, a dramatic coastline and thousands of acres of unspoilt forest, yet accessibility to the capital means that both commuters and day trippers don’t have far to travel, either by car or rail.

Restaurants

The team in our Lewes office love Horsted Place for formal dining and dishes using seasonal produce; and Pelham House for fantastic simple food using local produce, in a fabulous setting.

Best pubs and bars

For a traditional, cosy local pub, look no further than The Griffin, in Fletching, which serves local beer alongside a great menu of local food, with views over the South Downs. A popular pub for walkers is The Tiger Inn, in the small village of East Dean, near Beachy Head. Further inland, The Lamb, in Wartling, is a relatively new pub, welcoming patrons with its inviting and comfortable bar and good food, including fish caught just off the nearby South Coast.

Best annual events

Things to do in East Sussex are in aplenty, with a variety of different annual events entertaining both locals and residents each year.

Renowned around the country, the Lewes Bonfire Night Celebrations are the world’s biggest. So much more than just a bonfire and fireworks; the town is transformed into a sea of costumes and processions.

In keeping with Brighton being one of the world’s top gay destinations, the Brighton Pride event is extremely popular, now in its 23rd year!

A fantastic, family-friendly and free event, Airbourne, Eastbourne’s international air show, takes place over a long weekend each August, and is undoubtedly one of the top air shows in the country.
