Just over an hour or so from London, East Sussex is a beautiful county and plays host to one of Britain’s most popular seaside cities – Brighton. Boasting picturesque coastlines and sweeping countryside with the rolling green hills of the South Downs and the beautiful Ashdown Forest, East Sussex has much to offer any visitor and is a joy to live in for any resident. Brighton is the main focus along the East Sussex coast, a vibrant city whose legendary leisure pier is a British icon. Visit the Brighton Pavilion or take a stroll along the coast to the pretty Brighton Marina, whilst the Lanes are a veritable haven for shoppers with winding alleys filled with shops and boutiques. Head east down the coast from Brighton and discover Eastbourne, a regency seaside town with a more tranquil ambience and further east still, enjoy the sights of the 1066 landscape of Hastings with its charming seafront and castle ruins.
