HARVEYS DRAY Lewes HISTORIC A short drive or a spectacular walk through the South Downs National Park from Eastbourne lies the historic market town of Lewes built into the slopes either side of the Ouse Valley at the heart of the South Downs. Begin your tour at Lewes Castle, one of the earliest Norman strongholds in England. Climb the South Tower to view the site of the Battle of Lewes in 1264 and walk in the footsteps of medieval monks at the haunting ruins of the 11 th Century Priory of St Pancras, the first Cluniac priory in England. Explore Anne of Cleves House, a beautiful medieval timber house bequeathed to Henry VIII’s fourth wife and enjoy afternoon tea. ANNE OF CLEVES HOUSE LEWES CASTLE Wander the cobbled streets and quirky twittens to find an eclectic mix of independent shops, galleries, markets and antique emporiums. Enjoy lunch in one of the many cafés and restaurants serving great local foods and sample traditional cask ales from the Victorian Harvey’s Brewery. Lewes is ideally positioned to explore the evocative country home of the Bloomsbury Group of artists at Charleston, the 17 th Century Monk’s House, once the home of Virginia Woolf in Rodmell, or world class opera at Glyndebourne. 34 EASTBOURNE The Sunshine Coast
