Tucked away in the Downs and just a short distance north of Brighton, Lewes is a historic market town that offers a generous helping of period charm. To top it off, visitors to Lewes can choose from a wide selection of fabulous hotels and guesthouses.
Surrounded by the South Downs National Park, the county town of Lewes benefits from a wealth of natural beauty. The historic high street is lined with period architecture, from decadent, double-fronted Georgian townhouses to the famous 15th century bookshop, there's plenty for the discerning aesthete to take in. The bustling high street offers a range of independent shops and restaurants, as well as an extensive flea market and brewery.
A town of such historical significance was never going to be short of attractions, and the big one is set just back from the high street - the rather magnificent Lewes Castle. The 1000 year old Norman castle is the highest point of the town, offering panoramic views of the surrounding countryside.
Other attractions include the Anne of Cleves House, a tudor museum detailing the town's history. Just outside the town itself, visitors can find the famous opera house of Glyndebourne and the home of the writer Virginia Woolf.
Visitors don't need to stray too far from the high street to find some of the nicest hotels in East Sussex. The White Hart Hotel is an historic coaching inn which provides a host of spa services, as well as a friendly and traditional feel. Other period properties with accommodation include The Blacksmiths Arms.
Visitors keen to get out into the tranquil countryside surrounding Lewes also have a good range of accommodation options. The White Lodge B&B offers a peaceful, rural location. The rooftop terrace and garden mean guests can relax on-site, as well as enjoying easy access to a number of local attractions and activities.
