Follow in the Footsteps of William the Conqueror

East Sussex is home to the towns of Hastings; where of one of the bloodiest and most infamous battles in history took place in 1066. Retire in East Sussex and step back in time and explore the atmospheric ruins and medieval heritage of these two seaside towns. This is an opportunity not to be missed for history lovers especially!

Explore Eastbourne

The seaside town of Eastbourne serves as a microcosm of the county, with long stretches of pebbled beach (and accompanying pier), the sweeping South Downs countryside, a vibrant arts scene and historic and natural landmarks to see, including Eastbourne Redoubt and Beachy Head: the highest chalk sea cliff in the country.

Discover the South Downs

From rolling hills to bustling market towns, the South Downs National Park’s landscapes contain breath-taking views and hidden gems. Explore the white chalk cliffs of the Seven Sisters, ancient woodlands and lowland heaths, before stopping off for a break at the local villages to enjoy some traditional country pubs and vineyards.
