Discover, explore and savour the best of Sussex

Inspire, Explore, Enjoy!

How often do you venture off your usual beaten track and really explore what is all around? How often do you search out new, local produce and places and absorb the wonders of Sussex like a tourist here for the first time? And how often do you delve into the folklore and history which is so threaded into the Sussex landscape and people, and makes Sussex what is today?

Sussex Exclusive

Born and bred in Sussex, we believe in supporting local. Our mission is to help you discover all that is interesting, unusual and exclusive in our beautiful county

Exclusively Sussex

Sussex is a stunning county with a rich history and its own unique personality. From Camber in the east, the Witterings in the west and the vast South Downs and Weald in between, there are hundreds of little adventures to be had and delights to be sampled right here on our doorstep.

And our mission is to provide you with all the information and inspiration you need to do just that! 

From vineyards you’ve never heard of, and gins brewed within a stone’s throw, to the best dog friendly walks and pubs. From quirky festivals, local dishes, ancient traditions and forgotten dialects, to innovative new chefs, talented artisans and beautiful country homes.

Our team is scouring the county to bring you fresh ideas and insights and to help you rediscover the very essence of Sussex and all the great people, places and produce it has to offer.

“Oh Sussex, Sussex by the Sea!
Good old Sussex by the Sea!
You may tell them all we stand or fall,
For Sussex by the Sea.

The team

We’re a small but perfectly formed team who  share a love of adventure and life’s simple pleasures: the great outdoors, fine food and drink, local history and great craftsmanship. With connections across the county, we also have a nose for sniffing out both the best and the quirky and our experienced writing team like nothing better than sharing the discoveries they make while they’re exploring the county! 

Above all else, we want to leave Sussex at the end of our time on this earth in better shape than we found it and Sussex Exclusive is part of that legacy.
