Caitlin Rutkay Designs' Walk Through Sussex

C. R. Interior Designs’ Walk Through Sussex

C. R. Interior Designs has been in love with British style for years ever since their first trip to London to buy antiques for a client.

“I love the traditional grand family house look of layers, lamps, plump cushions and the likenesses of ancestors hanging on the walls. It exudes a sense of warmth and history!” Exclaims founder Caitlin Rutkay.

Enjoy this walk through Sussex and its English charm:

Hotel

A great place to stay is by the water, there’s the Grand Brighton, an opulent Victorian-Italianate dating from 1864 built by architect John Whichcord Jr.

geek battle

Aside from some place to stay, theirs lots to do! History geeks and war buffs will marvel at Battle Abbey, the 13th-century Benedictine ruins on the southern coast where the Battle of Hastings took place.

Sussex Food

And when you’re hungry, theirs millions of great dining restaurants. Restaurant Tristan delivers uncomplicated, field-to-fork British-French cuisine under the original oak beams of a 16th-century cottage in Horsham.
