Tom Cruise spends a lot of time in the UK and owned a property in Sussex for many years

He may be a star of Hollywood, but Tom Cruise has spent a lot of time in the UK over the years.

The actor bought a £3million mansion in East Grinstead, Sussex in 2006.

The property came in at 11,000 square feet. It had six bedrooms, a cinema room, gym, outdoor swimming pool and tennis court.

East Grinstead is a quiet, picturesque town around one hour from London.

It has a local town with shops and amenities and had a population of just 26,372 in 2021.

There is plenty to do in the area, including the historical site Standen where visitors can take in history or enjoy a nice stroll around the gardens.

After spending much time in the area, Tom sold the home in 2016.

However, the Top Gun star has not veered too far from the UK.

Tom was reportedly shopping for a home in Kensington, London, last year.

While filming Mission Impossible, he stayed at the Corinthia Residences in central London.

He reportedly rented out a penthouse which had four bedrooms and an indoor pool.

Tom isn't the only famous actor to swap the glamour of Los Angeles for a British home.

George Clooney owns a mansion in a "beautiful" English village.

He is the owner of a huge property in Sonning, near Reading.

There are lots of stunning parts of the UK to visit for a staycation or beach day.

The UK's most popular beach was named and described as "surreal in beauty".
