House Removals East Sussex
East Sussex is bequeathed with rolling countryside dotted with medieval villages. The rural hills give way to a long coastline, home to many favourite seaside towns. The minute the sun is out, this corner of England comes under attack from swarms of visitors but, for the rest of the time, locals can enjoy their own slice of beach and countryside enchantment.
It is not hard to see why East Sussex is so popular. Understandably the bohemian city Brighton is a favourite, particularly amongst students and shoppers. The cobbled medieval streets of Rye provide a welcome escape, as does the seaside town of Eastbourne, with routes over Seven Sisters and Beachy Head providing hours of blissful walking. Wherever you are in East Sussex, chances are you will not be far from the beautiful South Downs, allowing horse riders, walkers and cyclists the chance to escape.

Another individual famous in the music world is none other than Baby Spice (Emma Bunton) who was born in Hastings.

Things To Do in East Sussex
East Sussex is rich in history and Battle is a great place to start. Battle Abbey is a Benedictine abbey complex said to be the scene of the Battle of Hastings in 1066. Not far away from Battle, in Hastings, is the East and West Cliff Railways. The funicular railways take visitors high above Hastings. Also accessible from this point is Smugglers Adventure. This interactive exhibit allows individuals to walk the same cave passages as pirates and bandits who smuggled goods on the south coast 200 years ago.
Other popular attractions include Drusillas Park, Bodiam Castle and Bateman’s, Rudyard Kipling’s Jacobean house.
