East Sussex

Visit East Sussex for green hills and weald-land that look like landscape paintings, towns blitzed by bloody Norman battles and super-cool seaside resorts. There is lots to do and many exciting places visit in East Sussex. Follow the in-crowd to funky Brighton for days splashing off pebble beaches and browsing lanes of alternative boutiques. It's more chilled in family-focused Eastbourne with serene boating lakes, Victorian gardens and wow-factor white cliffs. Don your imaginary armour for days tracing 1066 dramas to abbeys and battlefields in Battle and Hastings. Seagull's eye views across the Channel are best from Beachy Head – a dizzying 531ft (160m) above sea level.
