Once known as ‘Scotland in Sussex’, this large town is set among high, rolling hills and was once an invigorating health resort.

It stands on one of the highest points in East Sussex, close to Ashdown Forest and the playground of Winnie the Pooh.

Its most famous former resident was Edinburgh-born Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, creator of Sherlock Holmes. His statue stands in the town centre.
