The Bluebell Rail
The volunteer run Bluebell Line was the UK's first preserved standard gauge passenger railway, re-opening part of the Lewes to East Grinstead line of the old London Brighton & South Coast Railway in 1960.

The National Trust
The National Trust was founded in 1895 by three Victorian philanthropists - Miss Octavia Hill, Sir Robert Hunter and Canon Hardwicke Rawnsley. Concerned about the impact of uncontrolled development and industrialisation, they set up the Trust to act as a guardian for the nation in the acquisition and protection of threatened coastline, countryside and buildings.

English Heritage
It is our job at English Heritage to make sure that the historic environment of England is properly maintained and cared for. By employing some of the country's very best architects, archaeologists and historians, we aim to help people understand and appreciate why the historic buildings and landscapes around them matter. From the first traces of civilisation, to the most significant buildings of the 20th century, we want every important historic site to get the care and attention it deserves.

The Royal Pavilion
The Royal Pavilion's lavish interiors combine Chinese-style decorations with magnificent furniture and furnishings. Adorned with gilded dragons, carved palm trees and imitation bamboo staircases, the Palace's magnificent furniture and furnishings. Adorned with gilded dragons, carved palm trees and imitation bamboo staircases, the Palace's unique style mixes Asian exoticism with English eccentricity. Daring and inventive colours feature throughout, and there are many original items on loan from HM The Queen.

Fishbourne Roman Palace
Fishbourne Roman Palace was discovered by accident during the digging of a water main trench in 1960. The discovery led to nine seasons of excavations that showed the site had developed from a military base at the time of the Roman invasion in AD43 to a sumptuous Palace by the end of the first century.

Pooh Country
Take this unique opportunity to tour Pooh Country. This beautiful part of the south east of England was the inspiration and home of the Winnie-the-Pooh Stories by A.A. Milne and E.H. Shepard.

Arundel Castle
There is nearly 1,000 years of history at this great castle, situated in magnificent grounds overlooking the River Arun in West Sussex and built at the end of the 11th century by Roger de Montgomery, Earl of Arundel.

Leonardslee Lakes and Gardens
There are about 240 acres (almost 100 hectare) of grounds to explore, seven beautiful lakes in the valley, and nearly 10 miles (16kms) of garden paths and woodland walks. Deer roam in the parks and wildfowl adorn the lakes.

Borde Hill Garden, Park and Woodland
Borde Hill is a garden of contrasts that captures the imagination and delights the senses. It is set in 200 acres of a traditional country estate in the area of outstanding natural beauty lying between the town of Haywards Heath and the village of Cuckfield in mid Sussex.

The Triangle Leisure Centre
Aztec Fun Pools: shoot the white water rapids, ride the flumes and surf the rapids. Relax in the spa; enjoy the waterfalls, geysers and gargoyles. Swim in the outdoor heated pool, set in a landscaped Mediterranean style patio. Let the kids explore Antics Soft Play, designed to stimulate and entertain. A fully supervised crèche is available - booking is essential. Other facilities include a 25-metre swimming pool, squash, and tennis courts.

Wakehurst Place
Wakehurst Place was leased by the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew in 1965 from the National Trust. Situated in an 'Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty' on the High Weald of Sussex, its higher rainfall, more moisture retentive soils and range of microclimates complement the conditions at Kew and allow the plant collections to be greatly enhanced.

Newhaven Fort
Newhaven Fort was built in the 1860's to deter invaders. Today it offers a warm welcome to anyone looking for a totally different and fascinating day out. The massive walls, ramparts and guns and many other original features all fire the imagination with other exciting glimpses into England's dramatic wartime past.

The Observatory Science Centre
The Royal Greenwich Observatory (RGO) was founded at Greenwich in London in 1675 by King Charles II but was moved just after the second world war in order to escape the lights and pollution of the city. The site at Herstmonceux was chosen as the most suitable in the UK. By the mid-fifties the observatory was fully operational.

Kent & East Sussex Steam Railway
A journey back to a bygone age. Less than an hour from the M25 lies an area of gentle hills, woods and marshland where friendly old world charm of a past age await to greet you. Our Farmers' Line joins together the jewels of the Weald, Tenterden Town and Bodiam Castle, brushing past the quiet Sussex village of Northiam on the way.
