Lewes town Reviews
A small town that has tons of British Nostalgia Jan 11, 2011
Living in Brighton I know of many small villages in the area that are available by bus from the town centre and should not be missed.
At the heart of East Sussex sits the beautiful county town of Lewes, enveloped by the breath-taking South Downs. Flint knapped and mathematical tiled buildings line medieval streets and tiny twittens (Sussex word for alleyway) full of independent and speciality shops.
The Norman remains of Lewes Castle dominate the skyline and is open year round, with wonderful view from the top of the Keep.
Next door is the Barbican House Museum with displays of the history of Sussex and other attractions include Anne of Cleves House (wife of Henry VIII), the remains of a Cluniac Priory and of course the home of Harvey's Brewery.
If your passing through the A27 or visiting Brighton, don't miss the chance to hop on a bus and visit Lewes and all it has to offer!
