Keere Street is a delightful cobbled street off Lewes High Street, where it is said that the Prince Regent drove a carriage of four horses down as a wager. At the bottom of Keere Street are the beautiful Grange Gardens and manor house, and it is just a five minute walk to the mainline Railway Station (London Victoria 65 mins & London Bridge 90 mins).
