Sussex is known for its strong tradition of bonfire celebrations and its proud musical heritage. The county is home to England’s largest arts festival, the Brighton Festival. Brighton Pride is one of the UK’s largest and oldest gay pride parades.

West is disparagingly labelled the “ posh bit” by East Sussex , which likes to boast Rag ‘n’ Bone man among its grittier alumni. More begrudgingly, it also lays claim to Johnny Depp in the cobbled town of Rye, with its chintzy tea rooms and old pubs with tales of smugglers and seafarers.
