East Sussex scenery is renowned for its great natural beauty, including a stunning coastline and undulating hills inland. East Sussex is located in the South East, bordered by the neighbouring counties of West Sussex Kent and Surrey. To the south is the coastline of the English Channel with France beyond.

East Sussex is a county of great beauty with a long and proud history and, surprsingly (and infuritatingly at times) it has no motorways!

There are many notable attractions and beauty spots to enjoy in East Sussex, Beachy Head in my view being one of them. This large expanse of chalky, undulating and open land is located by Eastbourne and is a huge draw for visitors. Its darker claim to fame is its great appeal for those wishing to commit suicide on the rocks below!

East Sussex is known for being one of the greenest counties in England. Just a few miles inland, the hilly and under populated landscape provides some delightful countryside to visit. There are some of the prettiest villages in England to be found here too.

East Sussex castles

Known for its many landmarks of historical interest, East Sussex boasts castles at Pevensey, Bodiam, Herstmonceux and Lewes, all of which are worth a visit. The large towns of Eastbourne and Hastings have plenty to offer visitors. In particular the Old Town area of Hastings is worth spending time at.

The Seven Sisters Park, situated in the South Downs National Park, comprises 280 hectares of chalk cliffs, meandering river valley and open chalk grassland.
