East Sussex

Look at this…

…it’s the most perfect fairytale castle ever, don’t you think? This is Bodiam Castle in East Sussex – it’s one of the places we visited earlier in the week during a (much needed) mini-break. Do I sound a bit ‘Bridget Jones’y calling it a mini-break? It’s what we call them!

East Sussex isn’t really all that far from where I live – any of you who live in vast countries – even medium-sized countries – will probably think it’s rather amusing that I consider somewhere 120 miles away to be worthy of needing overnight accommodation and military planning! That’s what happened though – it was great!

On this little island you only need to travel a handful of miles to be in a completely different sort of place, and this is very apparent when you’re in East Sussex – so one day it was all fairytale castles and medieval architecture, the next it was Dungeness.


Oh, Dungeness! There needs to be a whole post on you, yes, definitely. I can’t sum the place up here really, suffice to say it should be called Weirdsville.

Then a few miles more and you’re at Beachy Head – again, jaw-dropping.

We took in lots of other spots in the area too and obviously I took lots of cameras with me, so expect quite a few views of East Sussex coming up in the next few days – it was very photogenic and I took over a million photos!

    Oh Angie! That last picture… It is just magnificent! I grew up in Sussex and yet I feel like I know so little of it (I was only there until I was 9 but still). You’re making me want to go back. And I know Amélie would just love the fairytale castle. Can’t wait to see the rest of your million pics!

      Beachy Head was amazing – and the that castle would be perfect for any budding princess! I live right next door to Sussex and yet have never been to these places before in my life!
