Why Move to Lewes
East Sussex’s County town, Lewes, has a population of under 20,000 and is proud of its reputation as a small town with a big heart. Packed with ancient history Lewes Castle proudly overlooks the town. Today, Lewes is a pretty market town which is backed by the hills of the South Downs, providing a haven for both wildlife and for the residents of Lewes.
Sitting just 15 minutes from cosmopolitan Brighton and an hour from London. Its alluring location makes Lewes attractive to a host of commuters, who are happy to travel a bit further to work but have the benefit of a relaxing lifestyle close to both the coast and countryside. A favourite with visitors, the cobbled streets, castle, brewery and thriving antiques and art scene have put Lewes on the map and are enjoyed by a vibrant and diverse community of all generations.
A busy annual calendar of festivals, fairs and street markets gives the town a cheery upbeat appeal. Its Bonfire Night festivities attract people from far and wide.
The Sunday Times Guide has gone as far as naming it “one of the best places to live in the Southeast of England”. Judges were impressed by the variety of activities and clubs in the town, from life drawing to more conventional sports.
The main high street provides everything residents need and more. Like its neighbour Brighton, Lewes has some unusual antique stores and a selection of very upmarket boutique clothing stores too. When you need a break from shopping, the choice of eateries is pretty much endless. Fine dining, bistro restaurants and alfresco cafes. Lewes provides something for any occasion or budget.
It is true that Sussex is absolutely full of interesting towns and villages, all with their own charm, however, Lewes is certainly one town not easily overlooked.
Schools & Education
Being known as a family-friendly location, you would expect the town to have some very high performing schools and it certainly delivers on that score.
Both private and state schools combine to provide parents with excellent education choices.
Boasting no less than seven state Ofsted rated “outstanding” schools in the town along with another twenty-seven having been inspected and rated as “good” is a testament to education standards in Lewes.
Private education is via three schools Lewes Old Grammar School, Owlswick School and Northease Manor School all sitting less than 2½ miles from Lewes.
The campus of East Sussex College (ESCG) is located close to the centre of town. The college educates almost half of the county’s young people and over 8,000 adults each year at its three campuses in Lewes, Eastbourne, and Hastings.
ESCG provides a good assortment of academic and vocational courses across the sectors of further education, apprenticeships, and higher education.
Things to do in Lewes
No trouble finding something interesting to do in your downtime when you live in Lewes.
The town has a good selection of attractions and residents only have to travel a short distance to access plenty more.
Lewes Castle & Museum is worthy of a visit. Originally called Bray Castle, it occupies a commanding position guarding the gap in the South Downs cut by the River Ouse. As well as being full of amazing artefacts, if you can manage the climb to the top of the castle it offers some spectacular views. It is free to enter – bonus!
Southover Grange Gardens. This is one for keen gardeners. A delightful walled garden with entrances that are almost “secret”. Features include a terrace paved with stone and attractive internal walls. There are several specimen trees, including a mulberry thought to be around 350 years old.
Lewes Nature Reserve sits in the heart of the town close to the railway station. Located alongside the river Ouse, it is the perfect tranquil oasis away from the hustle and bustle of the busy town.
There are four main areas for you to explore if you fancy a shopping spree around Lewes aside from its main high street.
Lewes Farmers’ Market, one of the first in the UK, was started in the 1990s by Common Cause Co-operative Ltd as a popular re-invention of Lewes as a market town.
The Farmers’ Market takes place in pedestrianised Cliffe High Street on the first and third Saturdays of every month, with local food producers coming to sell their wares under covered market stalls.
No mention of Lewes is complete without pointing out that it sits within the incredible South Downs National Park and just a couple of miles to its left is the High Weald Area of Natural Beauty. More than enough green spaces for all.
No doubt about it, there is absolutely no chance of finding yourself with nothing to do when you live in wonderful Lewes.
Lewes ticks all the property boxes and then some.
The town’s Victorian terraces are a particular attraction for buyers as they offer plenty of internal space and large gardens, ideal for ex-Londoners who have started having children.
In fact, there is a huge contingency of ex London residents already comfortably settled in Lewes.
Due to its popularity, the town’s housing prices are way above the East Sussex average of £428,726.
The average price paid for a home in Lewes stands at £ 594,531. The good news for those who have a little less budget to spend is that there are plenty of much more reasonably priced homes available right now too.
For £210,00 you can purchase a conveniently located one bedroom apartment which sits in the heart of the town centre.
Or if it’s a larger home which suits your requirements, Brand Vaughan Estate Agents are advertising a 3-bed townhouse recently renovated within a 19th Century building. It sits close to Lewes train station and good schools, for sale at £450,000.
