We start with a local departure for our journey south. Accommodation has been reserved for 4 nights on a dinner, bed and breakfast basis at the Glastonbury Hotel which is prominently situated on the Royal Parade. It is close to the pier and promenade, town centre, Devonshire Park and the theatre. Features include a bar and restaurant.
During your stay we have included these great excursions:
- A journey into 1066 country. We call at the picturesque abbey town of Battle, site of the Battle of Hastings. We go on to the ancient Cinque Port of Rye – the delightful town with enchanting cobbled streets and a mediaeval church. Return via Hastings - location for the TV series "Foyles War".
- A journey along the coast to Brighton - famous for its Regency Palace and the labyrinth of Antique shops in The Lanes. There will be plenty of time to discover Brighton before we travel on in the afternoon to historic Lewes. Dominated by its Norman castle the history of Lewes can be discovered in its Mediaeval streets. We return via the magnificent South Downs.
As well there will be a full day at leisure in Eastbourne - don't miss the excellent shopping centre or perhaps just relax on a deck chair. In the summer you may even catch a band concert.
