Sussex is amongst the most beautiful counties in England. From picturesque villages, such as Rye and Amberley to historic market towns like Battle and Petworth; Sussex has some incredible places to visit this winter.
Chances are you have seen Rye's Mermaid Street at least once in your social media feeds. Pictures of this charming, cobbled street have been shared more than 130,000 times in the last year, landing it the title of the `most Instagramable street in the UK.’
Just two miles from the sea and at the meeting of three rivers, Rye was a major port in times gone by. This naval influence is apparent in places like The Old Bell Inn, and stories of smugglers and pirates are rife in the town’s history.
Bosham is widely believed to be one of the most beautiful and photogenic villages on the whole of the South Coast of England. Sitting on the water's edge and looking out across Chichester Harbour, Bosham's pristine historic architecture shows off the best of Sussex.
For the best views of the village park at Itchenor car park and take the ferry over to Bosham. A 30-minute scenic walk will take you around the coast and to the centre of the village. Visiting at high tide will give the best views across the water.
Petworth is a wonderfully preserved town within the South Downs National Park. As well as beautiful architecture, the town has several gastropubs and an excellent collection of independent antique shops and art galleries.
A walk around Petworth House & Park, and perhaps a cream tea pit-stop, is a lovely way to spend a winter's afternoon.
The village of Alfriston is one of England's oldest and was founded back in the Saxon period. The Starr Inn is almost 800 years old and was initially a stop on the way for pilgrims travelling to the Battle Abbey.
Alfriston is the perfect place to soak up the history of Sussex and enjoy the surrounding countryside, including a relaxed stroll along the Cuckmere River.
This historic East Sussex town is a place that has witnessed a lot of history. From being the site for the Battle of Hastings to being a producer of gunpowder in the 18th century, Battle, Sussex has an exciting past.
The 1066 walk runs through the 200-acre Battle Great Wood, continuing to Rye. It follows the same path taken by William the Conqueror and his Norman troops after his invasion.
