The 8 best places to live in Sussex

The results are in! See where you voted as the best place to live in Sussex.

From quaint country villages to vibrant coastal cities, Sussex is bursting with charm and has its own, very quirky, sense of humour. Rolling hills and fertile farmland provide ample locally-sourced fare for fine dining and its vineyards are up there with the best the world has to offer. Culture vultures and activists alike can congregate in Brighton for a slice of city life secure in the knowledge a sleepy rural hamlet is only a stone’s throw away, and London less than an hour by train.

Steyning

Chocolate box cottages, a High Street stashed with quirky and classy indies, and the rolling South Downs, quality of life abounds in Steyning.

Cuckfield

Looking for an upmarket mid Sussex village with a quirky sense of humour? Cuckfield's the place, and it's got a price ticket to match.

6

Midhurst

Consistently voted one of the best places to live in the entire UK by the Sunday Times, Midhurst has character, a Royal heritage, and more indies than anywhere else in Sussex.

Brighton

Brighton doesn't need to be voted the no1 place to live outside London any more, it's just enshrined in lore that if you're escaping the big city, the first place you look is the city beneath the rolling hills by the sea.

Ditchling

Just north of Brighton, although a stately climb over the imposing Ditchling Beacon, this South Downs village is a hub of creativity, indy spirit and the best of the good life.

Chichester

Bright lights, cathedral city. The administrative capital of West Sussex is pastoral and quaint with fine dining galore and indie HQ Draper's Yard.

Wadhurst

Live the cottage dream in this affluent market town on the borders of Kent and East Sussex. It's not cheap, but you get what you pay for.

Worthing

Like to be beside the seaside? With a sizzling foodie scene, indie arts and culture hotspots and an Art Deco pier, Worthing's a small, chic and let's face it, less megabucks Sussex coastal choice.
