In East Sussex, our selection of places to stay includes Jeake's House, one of our favourites, on the coast at Rye. The same family has lived here since 1485. The county is well known for the magnificent cliffs at Beachy Head and for its castles – for example, Bodiam and Lewes. The last invaders of Britain, the Normans, passed through the county in 1066, but then the area was part of one large county, Sussex, divided into the eastern and western rapes – an Anglo Saxon term meaning district. The county town is Lewes, a useful starting point for walks along the South Downs. And of course its main seaside settlement is Brighton, with the extraordinary Mogul-style Royal Pavilion – and pier.
