Where:At the far south-western corner of West Sussex, the ancient town of Steyning sits on a hill overlooking Romney Marsh. Once an important Cinque Port, today Steyning is some distance from the sea at Steyning Harbour.
Why Visit:For good food lovers, Steyning is world renowned for its fine seafood, especially its Steyning Bay scallops and nearby for Romney Marsh lamb. The town boasts a plethora of cobbled streets and medieval, Tudor and Georgian architecture making it the perfect place for amblers. There are plenty of small independent shops for hours of gentle browsing if the English weather fails to deliver sunshine. The surrounding countryside is dotted with pretty villages and country pubs. The beach at nearby Camber Sands is vast, safe and a firm family favourite.
Places of Interest:In Steyning itself we recommend Steyning Castle Museum, Steyning Pottery and Lamb House (National Trust). Nearby Steyning Harbour Nature Reserve, Great Dixter House and Gardens in Northiam and Camber Castle are all well worth a visit.
