The Best Places to Stay in the UK


The small villages of the Sussex countryside offer some unique independent stores, as well as good food shops selling locally farmed produce. The growing quality of British wine is reflected in the rising number of vineyards in the area and Sussex is a good place to find specialist wine shops with bottles from around the world as well as down road. But the real centre for shopping in Sussex is undoubtedly Brighton, home to a pleasing mix of vintage cool, boutique fashion and tacky seaside kitsch. The antique shops and jewelers of Brighton’s famously beguiling Lanes are brimming with one-of-a-kind treasures. It may also surprise you to find high end specialists like Warren Evans and Apple. As befitting its Mod heritage, Brighton has some excellent retro furniture and clothes stores with the excellent Nanadobbie down the North Laine selling everything from Warhol prints to chrome light fixtures straight out of Blow Up. If art is your thing, we recommend a visit in September to the Brighton Art fair where shoppers can indulge their inner Saatchi in any of the city’s many independent galleries selling unique and affordable pieces.
