Samuel Johnson said that when a man is tired of London he is tired of life. We believe that if a man, woman or child is bored in East Grinstead then they are also tired of life.
The diversity of things to do in East Grinstead and the surrounding areas is quite remarkable. Whether it is participating in team sports or just watching, or it is outdoor pursuits such as walking, cycling, fishing or yachting; simple or gourmet eating; culture or chilling out with a glass of wine, we have it.
And when it comes to shopping we have it as well. East Grinstead is not one of the many ‘cloned British high streets’ – our shops are diverse and many privately owned.
If you are interested in history then East Grinstead has it in bucket loads! Medieval buildings, stage coaching, smuggling, munitions for Nelson’s fleet, steam railways and more recently the development of reconstructive (plastic) surgery pioneered by the world renowned surgeon Sir Archibald McIndoe during WW2.
