East Sussex [ ˌiːstˈsʌsɪks ] is a county in south east England . It borders Kent , Surrey , West Sussex and the English Channel to the south . The county’s administrative seat is in the city of Lewes .

The county of Sussex had been divided into two administrative areas with their own main towns since 1888. Nevertheless, Sussex remained an independent county until 1974. Then it was split into the new counties of East Sussex and West Sussex. In 1997, Brighton and Hove became a separate Unitary Authority .
