Some people find the idea of a website storing information on their computer or mobile device a bit intrusive, particularly when this information is stored and used by a third party without them knowing. Although this is generally quite harmless you may not, for example, want to see advertising that has been targeted to your interests. If you prefer, it is possible to block some or all cookies, or even to delete cookies that have already been set; but you need to be aware that you might lose some functions of that website.

Go Lewes

Enjoy a car free break in the historic market town of Lewes.

Explore ancient attractions and an eclectic mix of independent shops, galleries and antique emporiums. Unwind in one of the many restaurants and cafes serving local food, or wander the cobbled streets and quirky twittens – ancient Saxon alleyways revealing stunning views of the surrounding South Downs.

From Lewes you can easily visit the eastern area of the South Downs National Park and experience the full range of riches that make the South Downs unique.

Explore a Norman castle, a medieval timber-framed house, Cluniac priory ruins, Saxon burial mounds, the Long Man of Wilmington carved into the hillside, the homes of Bloomsbury writers and artists, the unspoilt Cuckmere estuary and stunning vantage points along the South Downs Way.

Lewes is the perfect destination to explore the towns, villages and landscapes of the South Downs on foot, by bike or public transport.
