    Fun East Sussex Facts

    Campfire

    Remember Remember

    The fifth of November is the biggest night of the year for many Sussex folk. Nowhere in the country does Bonfire Night quite like East Sussex. Lewes, the county town hosts a spectacular parade with more than 5,000 costumed participants marching through the streets at the start of the night that’s full of traditions unique to the county.

    Oldies But Goodies

    Sussex is home to the UK’s oldest cinema, the world’s second oldest aquarium, the worlds oldest elm tree, UK’s oldest yew tree, Britain’s first nudist beach, Britain’s first casino and the first ever blue movie. It was also the site of the first ever TV transmission.

    All Things Brighton Beautiful

    Brighton Pride is the UK’s largest gay pride festival that attracts 160,000 visitors each year. Brighton is regarded as being the most socially acceptable city in the UK, over 10% of the population identify as LGBTQ+ and the parade is a flamboyant party celebrating tolerance and the gay community. Street food, parties, performers and more drag queens than you can shake a feather boa at!

    War Effort

    Sussex was on the frontline of British defences in WWII. Miles of beaches had to be defended from attack so were made out of bounds to the locals and even areas like Eastbourne’s Carpet Gardens were replaced by onions to help feed the nation. Gunning emplacements and tank traps can still be seen along the coast today. Heading back in time, you can also spot Martello Towers, these rotund fortresses were built to defend against an invasion by Napoleon Bonaparte.

    Beachy Head

    This stunning headline has had the unfortunate reputation as a suicide spot since the 1600s. A telephone box was installed in 1976 with numbers for the Samaritans and other national helplines. Volunteers patrol the area, talking to anyone who might seem at risk. Despite the chalk cliff face towering 530 feet above the beach below, amazingly around 5% of all jumpers survive but often suffer life altering injuries.

    Ghost

    Beachy Ghost

    The site also has its own ghost, the Black Monk of Beachy Head, a black robbed figure that walks the beach, is believed to be the soul of a monk who evaded Henry the VIII’s soldiers by hiding in the Sussex Downs. He was eventually caught, shackled and thrown from the top of the cliffs. The site is also linked to witchcraft and was a favourite spot of occultist and high dark priest Alistair Crowley. In recent times white witches have performed spells to reverse any curses.

    Pie

    Banoffee Pie

    Pub grub staple and one of the nation’s favourite puds, Banoffee Pie was invented in Jevington, Sussex. In fact Sussex has been stuffing itself with sweet and savoury puddings and pies before soggy bottoms had ever been heard of. Local treats include; Sussex Pond Pudding, Chichester Pudding, Sussex Blanket Pudding, Sussex Bacon Pudding, Chiddingly Hot Pot, Sussex Hogs’ Pudding, Sussex Well Pudding, Huffed Chicken, Ashdown Partridge Pudding, Sussex Churdles, Sussex Shepherds Pie, and Chichester Pudding. If you can wrap it in pastry and cover it in custard or Gravy then the good folk of Sussex will do it!

    Wine

    Fine Wining

    As well as some notable breweries of all shapes and sizes (including Harveys of Lewes), Sussex has produced a number of world champion wines. We’ll drink to that!

    Things to Do in East Sussex

    Drusillas

    This small, perfectly formed zoo started out as a ramshackle group of buildings, some disused tractors and an old fire engine. Today it is a bustling family attraction with rides, petting areas, soft play, adventure park, cafes, shops and more.

    Royal Pavillion

    Seaside party pad of the Prince Regent, it was built in 1815 in the style of an Indian Palace, certainly not what you’d expect to see in an English city. But the inside it is even more spectacular, your own decorating plans suddenly won’t seem so tricky.
