Trains to Lewes

Travel direct to the historic market town of Lewes in just over an hour from London Victoria.

The station is just a short walk along medieval streets to the centre of town, where you’ll find old churches alongside independent shops and a good choice of places to eat.

Fans of beer will want to pay a visit to Harveys Brewery, the oldest in the county, while there’s plenty of opportunity to get out and about in the surrounding countryside at places such as the South Downs National Park.

Things to do in Lewes

Lewes Castle

Climb the steep steps up to the atmospheric ruins of this 1,000-year-old castle and you’ll be rewarded with some knock-out views of the town below.

It’s perched at the very highest point of Lewes, looking out across the roofs of the houses below and across to the chalk cliffs on the other side of town.

Next door to the castle, which is around five minutes from the station on foot, you’ll also be able to learn about the history of Lewes at the Barbican House Museum.

Highlights here include local archaeological finds such as a collection of medieval gold rings and some Saxon weapons.

Anne of Cleves House

Built on the order of Henry VIII for wife number four, Anne of Cleves House is just as it would have been in the 15th century.

Though it was never actually visited by Anne herself, it gives a fascinating insight into how the Elizabethans and Tudors lived.

Take in the beautiful bedroom, fully furnished kitchen and traditional Tudor garden, before rounding off your trip in the cafe.
