History bulges in the fascinating town of Lewes with its castle, Anne of Cleves house and other old buildings of interest, and long history of intense bonfire celebrations. One church in the town is even reputed to contain graffiti from Tudor times. These days, the county town's shopping scene, with independent outlets and a big focus on antiques, is positively buzzing. The layout of Lewes is also interesting with twittens [cars occasionally make a wrong turn and get stuck] and a wonderful woodland, the Railway Land Nature Reserve, nestled next to the River Ouse. Easily accessible from the town centre, the woods are rich in wildlife and you may even catch a glimpse of an otter on the river bank. Residents are passionate about the welfare of Lewes and there are plenty of spirit rousing pubs where you'll hear folk chatting about topics of the day. Lewes is a honeyspot site for tourists and pleasant to visit, whether you are a resident in Sussex or further afield.

Residents live in a respectable mix of homes on streets such as Landport Road, Nevill Road, Western Road, Prince Edward's Road or the interestingly named Winterbourne Hollow. The arts culture is buzzing in Lewes with various exhibitions by local artists throughout the year. Lewes is also famous for a wonderful array of second hand bookshops, antiques shops and a number of individual retail units selling all kinds of intriguing artefacts. Flooding by the river has caused havoc a number of times in the town's history but the residents are robust and have pulled through some difficult times together. Thomas Paine, one of the founding fathers of the United States of America, lived in Lewes during an influential period of his life, where he became involved in civic matters.

Lewes bonfire celebrations, as aforementioned, are universally famous. There are arguably few towns, which capture the excitement of November 5 so well and draw so many crowds. Seveal bonfire societies work hard to make the event a great success: Lewes Borough, Cliffe, Commercial Square, South Street, Southover, Waterloo and Nevill Juvenile (for children). There are plenty of traditions and rituals for the colourful spectable: individuals wear their own society smuggler jumpers; processions include School Hill, St Anne's Street and High Street, with respects paid at the war memorial. Effigies and tableaux are created by the societies and often carry a political or cultural statement. Large firework and bonfie displays are held by the bonfire societies at different fire sites on the borders of the town. A focus of the event is not only on Guy Fawkes and the 1605 Gunpowder Plot but the martyrdom of 17 Protestants in the Marion Persecutions between 1555 and 1557.
