Going on holiday in Sussex

Pelham House 4*
Sussex is a treat all year round. The high season is roughly in the heart of summer, from July through August. Accommodation prices rise slightly during this period, particularly in popular coastal areas like Brighton. To avoid the crowds, travelling just outside of these high summer months brings similarly fine weather. Spring and autumn are also a dream, with changing foliage and blooming wildflowers. Just be wary that sites can get busy around school holidays like Easter. Winter is also breathtaking in Sussex. The many medieval towns and attractions come to life with festive decorations. Some attractions see reduced hours, but the only real hindrance is the weather. It can get very cold and wet – so remember to wrap up warm!

Cottage offers at Sussex convenient for all kind of travel

The Bell Inn 3*
Sussex is a romantic area that's perfect for outdoorsy couples. The pretty rolling countryside and world-class country dining are among the top spots to escape to. Families will find much to enjoy too, from medieval castles to bustling Brighton. In Brighton, you can enjoy prized sea life centres and surfing adventures. What's more, vineyard tours, Roman ruins and famed chalky cliffs all make fine days out for families and friends. Still, it's a place to unwind in – so kick your feet back and enjoy the gentle landscapes together.

How to get to Sussex

Sussex' proximity to London means that most international travellers arrive via one of the capital's larger airports. For local travel, Sussex boasts a few airports of its own, notably Brighton City Airport. The best way to travel into towns and cities, however, is by rail. You'll find excellent connections into London and beyond to most major places of interest by train. For more localised travel, a car is necessary. This will give you the freedom to explore the countryside at your own pace. Many more rural attractions have little to no public transport and provide ample parking for day-trippers.

The opinion of the Voyage Privé travel expert on Sussex

Sussex is the quintessential countryside retreat. Littered with fine medieval villages and a spectacular coastline, it conjures up images of the England of yesteryear. Enjoy spectacular ruins like Pevensey Castle or Lewes Castle for a snapshot of this region's historic importance. While big-hitters like Brighton are sure to bring the crowds, you'll find more genteel seaside escapes like Eastbourne too.

Sussex – explore the scenic South Downs National Park

England's newest national park lies within Sussex. With rolling chalk downs leading to the famed Beachy Head cliffs, be sure to pack some good walking boots. The park is spread across over 600 square miles and makes a fine day out for adults and children alike. Aside from the rolling countryside walks, it's loaded with zoos, castles and regal estates.
