Sussex preserves some of England’s most enchantingly traditional scenes;
the steep chalky slopes of the South Downs, the White Cliffs, Bronze age
barrows rising above a mysterious yew forest. Walking paths lead to imposing country
houses and gardens including Petworth House, Uppark and Wakehurst Place. Lewes
and fairy-tale Arundel are historic towns while Fishbourne Roman Palace features
magnificent Roman mosaics.
