The Sussex town has not only maintained its local farmers' market and its array of quintessential British pubs, it has also started to incorporate popular high street shops and restaurants into the town centre. The result means there is plenty to do in and around the area.

Hailsham's history is based around a communal market. Such a gathering creates a great place to socialise as well as a vibrant, friendly atmosphere. Residents can also get a wide range of local produce from the market, helping them to stay healthy with naturally-sourced goods.

Taking place on the second Saturday of every month, the market still provides a focal point for the whole town to gather around.
