High Street Heroes: Rottingdean
PUBLISHED: 01:16 27 April 2011 | UPDATED: 19:16 20 February 2013
This lovely village is next to the bustle of Brighton and is known for its landmark windmill. Originally a farming settlement, today it is a fabulous place to shop!
Rottingdean apparently means the valley of Rotas people. When we visited, it was certainly the village for retailers people. If you are looking for something special to wear or for your home, you will find it here among the wonderful independent shops.
And its not just shopping there are also some great schools in the locality with St Aubyns and Rodean to name but two of them.
If you have any time left over after looking for that special sometime then why not visit some of the historical sights.
- Rottingdean Windmill which opens on every third Sunday.
- The Elms and Kipling Gardens, the former home of Rudyard Kipling where he wrote some of his most popular books including Kim, the Just So stories and Stallky & Co.
- St Margarets Church. With windows by Sir Edward Burne-Jones.
So, why not go there today?!
