Piers & Boardwalks · Beaches · Nightlife
Each weekend hordes of Londoners invade East Sussex, joining thousands of foreign tourists seeking adventure, entertainment, and relaxation. Get all three by planning a holiday to Brighton, the region’s biggest urban center and one of England’s most celebrated seaside resorts. Spend your vacation enjoying the energy of the region’s coastal towns, or escape the crowds by getting just a little off the beaten track. East Sussex features numerous quiet country roads, ideal for leisurely road trips, as well as a series of scenic walking and cycling trails. Far from the tourist-crammed towns, the region’s small villages offer hearty food, award-winning local ales, fine accommodations, and best of all, the pleasant company of the friendly locals. Use our United Kingdom travel itinerary planner to arrange the hows, wheres, and whens of your trip to East Sussex.
