Brede is a village and civil parish in the Rother District of East Sussex, England. It is located eight miles (13 km) north of Hastings and four miles (6 km) west of Rye. It takes its name from the River Brede.
The ecclesiastical parish is teamed with Udimore; the two parish churches are St George, Brede and St Mary Udimore.
The Village has a primary school, Methodist church and recreation ground. There are also two pubs. A bus service connects the village to Northiam, Hastings and Rye.
The parish contains a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) — Brede Pit and Cutting. A cutting into the landscape has revealed a sequence of all known geological layers in the area. Fossilised remains in these sections provide key information for the study of palaeogeography, sedimentology and palaeoecology.
Avant-garde singer-songwriter Patrick Wolf recorded parts of his 2009 album The Bachelor using the church organ at St George's, Brede.
