We've been here several times and well worth a visit. Leave time to explore the rest of historic Lewes though.
Great Places to Visit in the Winter Months!

Anne of Cleve's House in Lewes near Brighton

This house was given to Anne of Cleves by Henry the Eighth as part of their divorce settlement. You can explore how the Tudors and Elizabethans lived, worked and relaxed at home. It's a fascinating place - I love it ..

Note: 11.00am opening on Sundays, Mondays and Bank Holidays.

The Merchant Adventurers Hall, York
Built in the 14th century, it is described as one of the finest medieval guild halls in the world. The building, a scheduled ancient monument and Listed Grade I, was commissioned by a number of important trading men and (surprisingly for the time) women.

Note the 'belt and braces' double crossed over wind-braces in the gables. Technical note, curved timbers were split in half and used as opposing pairs, for symmetry.

One for our 'must visit list'
Definitely.
Nothing comes close to the experience of walking around the ancient town of Bruges, this city that feels suspended in time. Check out 27 photos that show the beauty of the medieval architecture, the cafes, the canals, and more, and get inspired to visit Bruges for yourself!

The ruins of Wilmington Priory
"Hiding Behind" the old flint wall boundary and shrubbery of the adjacent churchyard. For today's #joinindaily theme, by +Johnny Wills
If you're so inclined, there's more information and lots more photos, in my blog on the village of Wilmington (one of our furniture ranges is named after it), right here:

Bateman's, Burwash, Sussex
The 17th century home of author Rudyard Kipling, who lived here from 1902, to his death in 1936, and bequeathed to the National Trust three years later by his wife, on her death. Inside, it’s virtually like they’ve just popped out for an hour or two.
