East Sussex has become a very popular spot for glamping in the UK. If you’re new to the concept of glamping, think of camping but with an extra dose of glam.

East Sussex is not only popular for its beautiful scenery but also its close proximity to many tourist attractions. If you’re interested in UK history, be sure to visit Bodiam Castle. Nature enthusiasts will love the white cliffs of the seven sisters and sunbathers will be grateful for Camber Sands.
