I love this place! Thought Seaford was nice but Lewes is just lovely! Looking forward for spending August by the Pells and in Bills. Have a great summer!

It's full of moaners, whingers, nimbys and backstabbers. Apart from that it's great.

Must agree with the topic. Where is there so much history, music, scenery, food, good people, beer, creativity etc. Yes there are some negatives but let us be positive on here and spread the good around those we come across. You know it makes sense..........

Lots of good things and really good people in Lewes, but I'm moving back to Brighton. More diversity, and down-to-earth people. Lewes feels too much like a village, and everything that's vaguely interesting closes at 5pm. I don't like the difference here between the very wealthy and the not so wealthy. Multiple, and weekend homeowners, and food banks. I'm not saying Brighton is perfect by any means, but this town can feel a bit feudal,

John the only negative about living in Lewes is people like you. Lewes is what it is now, not what it was 20 years ago. If you don't like it then move elsewhere. I doubt you'd actually be any happier but Lewes would!

I have to admit to being a bit puzzled at the idea that Brighton has less of a gap between the wealthy and poor. Perhaps because it's much larger you are less aware of it on a day to day basis, but I think it's there even more than Lewes. The price of the recency housing is jaw dropping and it's got one of the highest numbers of street homeless in the country. And as for the number of 4x4s - incredible.

That's another factor in Brighton . Pink DINKys are worth a fortune.

Celine - there's also the deprivation in places like Whitehawk and Moulescoomb, as bad as anything elsewhere in England. The people living in these massive estates are a significant % of the Brighton population, but are completely ignored by those who swallow the idea of Brighton as some sort of cosmopolitan bohemian paradise.

If I was homeless, then Brighton would be top of my list of places to 'live'. Therein lies the reason it has more than average homeless population. Sun, sea, tolerant people, plenty going on. It's no coincidence that you don't find any homeless in the sh•those towns of the North.
