The lovely village of Rottingdean lies a couple of miles to the east of central Brighton and can easily be accessed by bus, bike, car or on foot along the undercliff walk. It is a large village which has plenty of attractions for visitors looking for a day out with its beaches, cliff top walks and sea views. There is the iconic windmill at the top of Beacon Hill which leads on to the Nature Reserve. The newly created Terraces Stage on the seafront offers a programme of music and theatrical events from June through to September - most of which are free admission.
Rottingdean High Street has plenty to offer in the way of refreshments with five pubs all serving food and a whole array of independent cafes, tea rooms and restaurants. The High Street has various different retail shops ranging from antique and charity shops, to bespoke dress and alterations shops, bakery, hair and beauty salons, supermarkets, two banks and an excellent greengrocer/delicatessen.
Rottingdean has a rich history and was developed in the Saxon Age around the pond opposite the church. After the battle of Hastings, Rottingdean was given to William de Warenne, the Lord of Lewes as a reward for his support of William the Conqueror.
