    Something a little different: Lewes Bonfire Celebrations, East Sussex

    If you’re going big for Bonfire Night, head to East Sussex for Britain’s biggest and best Bonfire Night in Lewes. The magnificent bonfire and firework display on the hills around the town are the culmination of a huge carnival organised by seven local bonfire ‘societies’ and nearly 30 visiting groups and marching bands, each with their own parades, traditions and costumes, so there’s something for all the family. There’s no need to book tickets, but using public transport is highly advised as all roads surrounding Lewes will be closed on the day.
