East Sussex

County in England

Over a thousand years of dominance and conflict have helped to form this historic county of East Sussex. It is studded with impressive castles, the grand homes of conquerors and men in power, which include Hastings Castle, built by William the Conqueror in 1066, Bodium Castle, built in the 14th century, and Herstmonceux, built in the 15th century.

The county of East Sussex is part of the anticline of The Weald, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty that stretches from the mearshes of Kent to the New Forest in Hampshire. The South Downs, a range of moderate chalk hills which run across the southern part of the county, have a mysterious guardian known as the 'Long Man of Wilmington', a striking chalk figure that has baffled archaeologists and historians for hundreds of years.

East Sussex exhibits beautiful expanses of land, including meadows, cliff tops and beaches that have been surrendered and conquered in great battles throughout history. The land continues to attract people to the county, and most of East Sussex' main towns are popular tourist resorts. Use the links below for more information about the county.
