Discover an area that's full of natural beauty and wildlife

Whether you're looking for picturesque valleys or elusive plant life, there's plenty to admire in the rural countryside of Sussex.

You can hike up the slopes to the top of Beachy Head, the highest chalk sea cliff in Britain, explore lakes and landscaped gardens at Sheffield Park, or you could spend years trying to see every corner of the 600-square-mile South Downs National Park.

You'll find water voles and otters on a boat safari at the Arundel Wetland Centre, owls, harriers and other large wading birds at the Rye Harbour Nature Reserve, or eagles, owls and hawks at East Sussex Falconry, near Eastbourne.

Retire to a place rich with history and heritage

From ancient ruins and medieval keeps to stately homes and curious museums, there are all sorts of intriguing historical sites around the area.

You can climb the towers of the moated Bodiam Castle, see some of the most complete mosaic floors in the country at the Bignor Roman Villa, or explore the site where the Battle of Hastings was fought nearly a thousand years ago at the Battle Abbey and Battlefield.

You'll find half a million insects and tens of thousands of pieces of art in the collections of the Brighton Museum and Art Gallery, aircraft and engines from the First World War up to the Cold War at the Tangmere Military Aviation Museum, and a huge range of classic vehicles and wild birds at the Bentley Wildfowl and Motor Museum in Lewes.

We have regular coffee mornings and film nights, and there is always someone to talk to.

I definitely made the right decision, and I’ve never looked back. My only regret is that I didn’t move in sooner!
