Take in the unique history and culture of East Sussex in your retirement
East Sussex, part of the historic county of Sussex, is a county that has its roots deep in the ancient kingdom of the South Saxons, who established themselves there in the 5th century AD, after the departure of the Romans. If you’re a fan of old English history and culture, then one of our retirement homes in East Sussex could be for you.
Things to do in East Sussex
There’s so much to enjoy in and around the county, but if you’re not familiar with the local area, here are just a few of the activities you can enjoy.
The largest city in the county, Brighton (alongside the neighbouring Hove) is beloved by tourists, with its old-time seaside amenities, alternative shops and cafes, vibrant culture and historic landmarks; including the Royal Pavilion palace and its famed pebble beach.
East Sussex is home to the towns of Hastings; where 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 medieval heritage of these two seaside towns. This is an opportunity not to be missed for history lovers especially!
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.
From rolling hills to bustling market towns, the South Downs National Park’s landscapes contain breath-taking views. 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.
