East Sussex is a coastal county in southern England, it borders the English Channel to the south, West Sussex to the west and Kent to the east. The coast is around 50 miles from central London and is popular with tourists and day trippers because of this proximity.

The county town is Lewes which lies around  5 miles from the coast; much of the inland area of the county is rural in nature. East Sussex has two main seaside resorts; Eastbourne and Hastings, - Brighton was a part of the county until 1997 when it became a self governing authority. There are two smaller seaside towns in the county - these are Newhaven which is a port with ferry links to Dieppe in France and Bexhill which is a small resort.
