I must admit that I am one of those people that rarely visits different places in England. If I have time off work, I am desperately trying to book a holiday somewhere outside of the UK (must. find. sun…).
After visiting Lewes though, I really want to try a bit harder to explore what we pretty much have on our door step!
Rob and I were only there for 2 days, but even in that short amount of time we managed to fall in love with the place.
It was packed full of history- from the castle with original stocks and the old monastery ruins, to the cobbled streets and shop buildings. Even the residential areas had kept in with the old style shingle walls and beautiful architecture.
We spent the whole day wondering the old winding streets and catching up with lost relatives.
A little early evening walk was accompanied by the most beautiful sunset. It was a perfect way to round off the day.
We retired to a Bed and Breakfast in town, set in the most decadent of town houses.
We were presented with a hearty breakfast for two the next day- I managed three whole courses before 10am! Go team!
What a spread.
Before we knew it, the time to head home was upon us. We will certainly be visiting again soon… And definitely spreading our wings a little closer to home for a weekend break in the UK.
I am trying to plan our next mini-break already -Do you have any UK gems I should look into?
