What are Sussex and the South East’s Sunday secrets?

New research has revealed how we spend our Sundays in Sussex and the South East.


Having a lie in, watching TV, going for a walk, catching up on things we didn’t do during the week and of course the Sunday roast is still the cornerstone of the British Sunday, according to the survey by Weber® barbecues.

A total of 45 per cent of the South East claim there is nothing they don’t like about a Sunday, although almost one in four experience ‘Sunday night fear’.

Unlike days gone by, only one in five in the South East manages to sit down to a traditional Sunday dinner every week.

People in Northern Ireland are the most traditional with a third enjoying a roast every Sunday with extended family and friends.

The Sunday dinner remains a family affair with more than two thirds (69 per cent) of those from the South East sharing their Sunday with their immediate family.

Topping the South East’s poll of Sunday best is roast beef, with more than a quarter of people preferring this meat choice, followed by roast lamb and roast chicken.

The survey was conducted with 2,009 adults by OnePoll on behalf of Weber® barbecues.
