Alfriston and the Cuckmere Valley
Alfriston is a village community surrounded by the Wealden South Downs. We sit near the eastern end of the South Downs Way where this national path splits three ways, going east, west and south, from the very centre of our historic village.
Around the village, visitors can enjoy our famous church St Andrew's church (the "Cathedral of the South Downs"), the clergy house (the National Trust's first property) and our wide range of galleries, cafés, pubs and shops.
Alfriston hosts many events throughout the year including music festivals, traditional fetes, boot fares ... the list seems endless. Keep an eye on our What's On page and the Village Diary on this page for information.
Take a trip to Alfriston for a relaxing break exploring the historic heritage of the village and the natural beauty of the surrounding countryside. Stroll north or south along the Cuckmere river or hike east or west up onto the Downs to soak up the natural peace and tranquility of the area.
