Living in Lewes also provides a very unique insight into the town's mystique, which is epitomised in the annual Lewes Bonfires, during which celebrations grip the entire area and attract visitors from nearby cities and villages.

On November 5th, parades inspired by ancient folk affiliations feature locals adorned in colourful costumes, often carrying flaming torches and letting off fireworks.

All roads in the town are closed for the day, while the evening sees a host of impressive bonfires taking place in and around the ancient town.

This change of pace once a year only adds to Lewes' charm, which for the rest of the time is every bit the quaint country village.
