Welcome to East Grinstead, a town in West Sussex, England. The area is situated near the East Sussex, Surrey and Kent borders. In fact, until 1974, the town was part of East Sussex rather than West Sussex!

Nearby places of interest include Crawley, Tunbridge Wells and Redhill. However, you don’t have to venture that far to enjoy an Afternoon Tea in East Grinstead!

This bustling town boasts one of the longest continuous runs of 14th century timber-framed buildings in England. It is also known for Sackville College, where the Christmas carol “Good King Wenceslas” was written by John Mason Neale.

On the outskirts of East Grinstead is Standen, a country house belonging to the National Trust. A fun day out here is guaranteed, with plenty to keep visitors content for hours on end.

On your next trip, why not start the day with a wander through nearby Ashdown Forest? Retrace the footsteps of A.A. Milne’s Winnie the Pooh while working up an appetite.

When lunchtime comes around, be sure to find an Afternoon Tea East Grinstead establishment for a nice brew and cake. You won’t be disappointed!
