Things to do
If you’re an opera lover, Glyndebourne is just a short journey away. The resident company puts on six productions each year at its 1200-seat opera house. Make sure to dress smartly – many visitors bring a picnic to enjoy on the beautiful lawns, too.
From its expansive ornamental gardens to its beautiful nature reserve, nearby Wakehurst House is a fascinating day out. This is the place where Kew Gardens’ Millennium Seed Bank is kept – a vital conservation project for the future.
The British are known for their country pursuits and there’s plenty on offer in the surrounding countryside. Try your hand at fishing or shooting, or even falconry. There are golf courses and archery centres within easy reach too.
