DURING YOUR STAY
Day 1 – Following door-to-door pickups, we travel to the hotel.
Day 2 – Today, we have a full day at the restored and remodelled Arundel Castle, established by Roger de Montgomery on Christmas day in 1068. The magnificent grounds are overlook the River Arun and there is a beautiful walled garden to explore at your own leisure with treats including the Rose Garden, White Garden and Organic Kitchen Garden. Inside the castle, you can admire the spectacular artwork and antiques.
Day 3 – Enjoy a free day today, to explore Eastbourne’s attractions. Take a stroll around the beautiful gardens and the bandstand, or call into the shops for something to take home.
Day 4 – The first stop today is Bexhill; if you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of the town then Egerton Park can offer you a peaceful escape. Heritage or Motor Racing fans may wish to visit the Bexhill Museum, which offers an insight into the town’s history and motoring heritage. After a little free time we travel the short distance to Hastings, home to the first castle in England which was built by William the Conqueror.
Day 5 – Today we visit Brighton, enjoy a walk out onto the pebble beach and the famous Brighton Pier, home to Punch and Judy, stalls and shops.
