East Grinstead - the capital of the historic High Weald. Our ancient market town with its wealth of architectural heritage is surrounded by some of the finest countryside in the whole of the South East of England. This is where the River Medway rises and the vast swathes of Ashdown Forest begin. Here you can ride the steam trains of the famous Bluebell Railway, drift among the treasures of the National Trust's Standen or celebrate the famous Christmas Carol of Good King Wenceslas in the quadrangle of Sackville College.
Truly, East Grinstead has something for everyone. Friendly restaurants, pubs, bars and coffee shops are waiting to bid you welcome. Cosy accommodation in one of our hotels or bed and breakfasts is available through the year. The town also has self-catering facilities and nearby campsites.
Through the years buildings such as Sackville College have been lovingly maintained and still serve as almshouses giving homes for the town's elderly.
This is where the famous East Grinstead carol 'Good King Wenceslas' was written, you can visit the building and take a tour from mid June to mid September each year.
In keeping with East Grinstead's location as a hub for four counties, for this is the only place where East and West Sussex meet Surrey and Kent, the Greenwich Meridian also runs through the town. The prime meridian that separates East from West is celebrated at East Court, the 1768 mansion set in its own parkland within the town. Population 24,000
