City/town information

Lewes is a busy town full of places to visit but if you do fancy going further afield, Eastbourne, Brighton and Tunbridge Wells are all worth a trip.
Lewes is an eclectic mix of independent shops and restaurants, an enviable selection of coffee shops and some rather wonderful galleries. Visit Harveys Brewery, walk up to the castle, explore the Needlemakers shops and cafes or browse the antiques markets. The Rugby and Football clubs, Pell's swimming pool, Southdown sports club and the Depot Arts cinema mean there really is something for everyone here.

There are a lot of lovely places to walk - on the downs or on the seafront, as well as good cafes and restaurants. The Beacon shopping centre in the town centre has recently been refurbished and incorporates a cinema. Little Chelsea, Meads village and Old Town both have their own special characteristics and Gildredge Park is great for tennis, football, picnics or general running around, with a playpark for small kids. There are some great traditional pubs dotted throughout the town - The Lamb, The Pilot and The Stage Door all worth a visit. The Congress Theatre and Towner Art Gallery have full and varied programmes throughout the year and of course Devonshire Park is famous for the LTA pre Wimbledon tournament.
