Lewes Tips

Middle farm at Firle is a good place to visit as the children can see chickens, ducks, shire horses and even see cows being milked ,they sell plants, and there is a nice craft shop thatís very reasonable and free parking - Sharon

Park your car in the Needle Makers car park and go inside for some interesting shopping, itís a haven for specialists shops, climb the winding stairs to the lower level and rummage in the eclectic shops that have curios, collectables from old plates, vintage hand bags, jewellery and so much more. When youíve finished and if you fancy more rummaging for antiques just around the corner is a vast emporium on two floors. - Sharon

Anne of Cleves House, a 16th century timber-framed Wealden Hall house, close to the town centre within walking distance, formed part of her divorce settlement from Henry VIII in 1541, although she never actually lived there. The house contains wide - ranging collections of Sussex interest. Nearby to Lewes is Charleston, the home of the artists Duncan Grant and Vanessa Bell (sister of Virgina Woolf). It became a meeting place for the Bloomsbury set, the London group of writers, artists and intellectuals, and is open to the public. - Carol
