Winchelsea is a small, serene town brimming with character. You can spend days here and it is well worth exploring. The town’s got some delightful views and is right on the coast. The views are breathtaking and there a soft breeze that blows through all day. It’s got a pub and a motel and they both provide accommodation and two meals a day. There’s even a coffee shop to sit at and a curl up with your book for a couple of hours while you sip a warm cuppa. The town gates are a relic of that past but add so much character to the architecture of Winchelsea. The church of St Thomas is a medieval gem and is another stop of your tour of town and there’s a well-curated museum attached to it. The grave of the much-loved comedian Spike Lee is housed in the churchyard and has visitors all year. The town mainly runs on tourism with hotels, restaurants, and travel and leisure services being responsible for the majority of employment in the town. This being said, the economy of Winchelsea is quite healthy and growing with a variety of organisations that have propped up over the years.
