Things to Do
Go and explore Ashdown Forest (where the Winnie-the-Pooh stories are set) and a preserved heritage line with steam locomotives called the Bluebell Railway. There is an impressive town museum which documents the famed actions of plastic surgeon Archibald McIndoe who treated burns victims during World War II and the bombing raids when the town was targeted during the same war. There is a modern purpose-built theatre called The Chequer Mead Community Arts Centre which stages amateur plays, opera, ballet, music and talks.
Sites of Interest
The High Street contains a 14th century timber-framed run of buildings which is one of the longest in England.
There are numerous notable buildings that were built in 1609. The perpendicular Gothic 18th century St Swithun’s Church has an imposing history. You should certainly check out the 1769 East Court mansion and explore the country house belonging to the National Trust on the towns outskirts called Standen.
