Inspiration

  1. With our towns and villages situated so close to the South Downs National Park, outdoor activities such as walking and cycling are incredibly popular in our district. Whether it be a gentle ramble along the river or mountain biking over the hills, venturing out into our great outdoors is a pleasure not to be missed. We are also part of the only UNESCO world Heritage Biosphere region in the South East of England.
  2. Art & Culture
    The Lewes area is rich in cultural heritage having once been the home of Virginia Woolf and a favourite countryside retreat for The Bloomsbury Set. It is also home to numerous traditional crafts people and contemporary artists whose work is regularly shown in Galleries.
