The Eastgate precinct is considered the very heart of Lewes town centre and as you step out from the gated communal courtyard, you see the attractive humpback Cliffe Bridge over the River Ouse leading into Cliffe High Street. The main precinct with numerous shops including Boots and Waitrose just around the corner, not to mention the many cafes, bars and restaurants including the original ‘Bills', are right on your doorstep. Lewes High Street and the historical core is just to the west, with a vast array of independent shops and period buildings and the buzzing pedestrianised Cliffe High Street to the east, with access to riverside and downland walks just a few hundred yards away. An easy level 5-10 minute walk brings you to the excellent Depot Cinema and Lewes Railway Station with connections to Brighton (20 mins), London Victoria (65 mins) and London Bridge (90 mins).
