A legendary beauty spot on the South Downs Devil’s Dyke, just five miles north of Brighton, offers stunning panoramas, a record breaking valley, a curious history and England’s most colourful habitat.

No visit to Lewes is complete without spending some time in the Needlemakers with its ancient brickwork, massive beams and echoes of a fascinating industrial past. Where once Broad’s candles were made and – during WW1 – surgical needles were manufactured, there is now a flourishing group of SPECIALIST SHOPS and a CAFÉ. Park in the adjacent West Street or North Street car parks. The shops are hugely varied but they have one thing in common. Everything on sale is chosen for its originality and its quality of design and excellent value for money. A wonderful place for buying presents.
