Lewes: Lovely market town life

Lewes: Lovely market town life

There are many reasons Brits might choose to move house and relocate to a new town or city elsewhere in the country - the raising of a family, the chance to find a new job or retirement for example - but for others, the chance to experience something new will be enough.

This is leading to a greater number of people heading to more rural settlements and away from cities, giving them a more peaceful and quirky way of life - the sort of thing that can be found when looking for property for sale in Lewes.

The East Sussex market town is the perfect example of this sort of settlement, with a very community-focused outlook and a range of events that make it a great place to live and meet new people.

Examples of this include the annual Bonfire Night celebrations, which are taken very seriously in Lewes. The event is the largest and most famous celebration of its type in the whole of England, sure to bring many locals out to see something exciting and spectacular.

Other happenings that make Lewes what it is include the monthly farmer's market. This takes place on the first Saturday of every month, and is the ideal place for locals to come out and meet their neighbours, while also picking up goods sourced and grown in surrounding areas.

This is complemented by the smaller weekly food market, which will occasionally even see visiting traders from various twinned towns in France.

There are are also a range of different landmarks in the area that make it a great place for people who enjoy the chance to learn all about the history of their new settlement. These include the likes of Lewes Castle, the remains of Lewes Priory, Bull House. Lewes also retains a brilliant aura of the past from the way many of the cobbled streets and shop fronts have survived from days gone by, making it an amazingly quirky and exciting place to live with a difference.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801634288-ADNFCR
