I have lived in East Grinstead now for 5 years. Although the town has one of the oldest high streets in the country, it does not take away from the fact that it’s a nasty horrible place.
The town itself is filled with *****, nutters, nasty middle-class idiots and Scientologists (the national Scientology headquarters is at is Saint Hill Manor in between EG and Haywards Heath).
The roads are always busy due to its ridiculous one way system and extreme lack of parking. I always find the roads dangerous and aggressive. You can also be sure to spot high numbers of boy racers speeding thorough the town and surrounding residential roads, shouting abuse at the innocent residents as they cruise by.
Train station is small and ugly, always packed, the 7:19 to London is the UK’s busiest train!
All in all I find the town one of the most hostile, nothingness, strangest places ive ever been in my life. I cannot wait to move away from this sh*thole!
