Lewes is about a half hour bus ride on the 28 or 29 from the university, which is itself about 20 minutes from Brighton.
The Fifteenth Century Bookshop on High Street. Yes, the building really has been around for centuries and it's been a secondhand bookstore since 1986.
Check out those bookshelves! I wonder what happens when it rains.
We wandered down Keere Street, which is a steep cobblestoned street lined with cute little houses with tiny doors.
Not far from Keere Street is the Southover Grange Gardens, with some gorgeous colours to brighten up this otherwise washed out day.
And then I was all packed and ready for a week driving around England.
