Lewes is a unique place, with a strong sense of identity (it even has its own currency!), a buzzing art scene and a slightly alternative feel. The town has a great selection of independent shops, antique markets to browse and a bustling farmers market on the first Saturday of each month.
There are also loads of small coffee shops, restaurants and pubs, with plentiful supplies of the locally brewed Harveys Ale (well worth a taste!). The original Bill’s café (they have now opened nationally) is a great place for breakfast, lunch or dinner and serves excellent food with a vibrant atmosphere.

Brighton needs no introduction and it has all the attractions that you’d expect of a major city, and far too many to mention here! However, the highlights for us would definitely include; popping down to the seafront for an ice cream on the Brighton pier, visiting the stunning historic Royal Pavilion and then finishing it off with a lovely amble through the North laines where there are hundreds of small independent shops, cafes and market stalls.
