Lewes takes Top 10 place on The Great British Bucket List 2018

DK Eyewitness Travel has put Lewes on its ‘Great British bucket list 2018’.

Dorling Kindersley’s DK Eyewitness Travel publishing business has put the East Sussex town of Lewes on its ‘Great British bucket list 2018‘, which contains ten recommended places to visit this year.

DK Travel Editor Lucy Richards says the town’s appearance as “an affluent country town” belies its “anarchic undercurrent”, describing the “notoriously raucous” Bonfire celebrations and reminding visitors that the Lewes Arms was at the centre of a boycott in 2006 when the pub’s new owners stopped selling locally-brewed Harvey’s beer.

Lewes is the only town in south-east England on the DK Top Ten list.
