Crowborough is a town in East Sussex near the border with Kent, in the South East of England.


Crowborough is a small town on the edge of Ashdown Forest that has grown up on and around Beacon Hill, so named for the flaming beacon used in past times to warn London of attacks on England's southern coast. The beacon can still be seen today, beside the running track at Goldsmith's Leisure Centre.

Crowborough is best known for being home to Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.
