Places to Visit


From iconic tourist attractions to beach front cool, Brighton is a treasure trove of things to do and places to go in Sussex. Vibrant, colourful, fun and free, Brighton offers the energy of the city and freedom of the sea. It really is a unique place.


From the stunning heritage of the Royal Pavilion, Regency architecture and Victorian aquariums to the traditional seaside fun of the famous Brighton Pier and pebble beach, Brighton offers something for every walk of life and is a 20 minute drive from Hickstead.

The Bolney Stage

Located in the pretty village of Bolney, this centuries-old English pub just oozes character, with huge inglenook fireplaces, ancient flagstones, crooked beams and comfortable old furniture. You’ll find a warm welcome, good honest food, and an unpretentious, chatty atmosphere. Sponsors of Friends of Dressage at Hickstead. Click here for more info.
