Things to see and do in East Grinstead

The pleasant, busy Sussex market town of East Grinstead features some truly magnificent historic timber-framed buildings, shoulder-to-shoulder with more modern shops in the High Street.

There is a varied selection of familiar stores, and more independent, individual shops like the well-stocked bookshop in Tudor House, which dates back to 1555, and is very near the War Memorial bus stop. It’s got a café too, so why not pop in for a browse and a coffee?

Just behind the impressive, medieval-style, sandstone church of St. Swithun with its beautiful stained glass, is the Chequer Mead Arts & Theatre complex with a 318-seat theatre, art gallery, café and giant mural illustrating 1000 years of the town’s history.

East Grinstead Museum is a light and airy modern building housing the towns’ social history, just off the High Street in Cantelupe Road. The displays are anything but dusty, and admission is FREE! Show your Metrobus bus ticket at the Museum shop, and get a free postcard (one use only).

The Atrium in King Street - with its distinctive glass façade - incorporates a cinema, The Crow’s Nest bar, and a Wetherspoons pub, but there are plenty of cafés, restaurants and tea rooms to chose from in a town catering for all tastes.
