The South East England region
Sussex is in the south east of England, stretching from Rye in the east to Chichester in the west. There are many blue flag beaches in between.
The chalk downland of the South Downs covers a large part of Sussex, from Beachy Head in Eastbourne through to Winchester in Hampshire.
Chichester is the cathedral city of Sussex, and Brighton and Hove is considered to be one of the most cosmopolitan cities in Europe.
Historic towns are numerous in the area: Arundel; Lewes; Rye; Hastings and Battle to name a few.
Eastbourne is known as the 'Sunshine Coast', and was officially the sunniest town in England in 2011. It offers the visitor everything, from the slopes of the South Downs that comes down from Beachy Head, to the promenade that stretches for two miles to the Victorian Pier, continuing on down to the Harbour.
In the summer it comes alive with the Aegon tennis tournament, hosting top players before Wimbledon, and with Airbourne, the impressive four day air show.
Sheltered by Beachy Head, Eastbourne has its own microclimate, making it perfect for a great holiday.
If it's an active holiday you are after, then the countryside is easily accessible with cycling, horse riding, walking, canoeing and paragliding all in easy reach. The blue flag beaches offers a fantasic water based holiday. Ideal for kids; the gently shelving beach is perfect for swimming or rock pooling at low tide. Windsurfing, dinghy sailing, fishing and boat trips out to Beachy Head can all be arranged locally.
Beachy Head marks the start of the 100 mile South Downs Way, and is an Area Of Outstanding National Beauty. Walks and cycling along all, or part of this special path are possible. With the lighthouses on top of the chalk cliffs, it offers very impressive views of the English Channel. The cliffs stretch along the coast, including Birling Gap and the beautiful Seven Sisters and Cuckmere Haven.
To the East, Pevensey and Pevensey Castle offers great birdwatching and wildlife. Battle marks the spot of the Battle of Hastings in 1066, and has a impressive Abbey. Rye is a quaint 'Cinque Port' town, with cobbled streets and quirky Antique shops. The Herstmonceux Observatory Science Centre is also within reach.
