What's not to like: East Sussex's town has it all. There is history, the present, the future, good food, good people, plentiful culture and a great community spirit. Quirks abound from the architecture (and those mathematical tiles) to the locals. It is the largest town in the country within a national park (ah, to be nestled by the South Downs) with a vibrant arts scene (from screen prints, web businesses to Glyndebourne). Bonfire is often the heart of the town and it is of little surprise that it inspired such men of might like Tom Paine (of whose writings in turn inspired Barack Obama's inaugural speech). And it even has its own currency!
