Brighton 5 Days - Britannia Royal Albion Hotel
Brighton was one of the first seaside resorts to attain popularity due to its patronage by the Prince Regent, whose eccentric Royal Pavilion is still its best known building. Today the air of raffishness remains, along with a rich mixture of old and new. At the centre of the resort is the Victorian Brighton Pier which has now been restored to its full glory and nearby is the enchanting area of small shops known as 'The Lanes'. To the east, Volks electric railway runs along the front to the Marina whilst Brighton's twin resort of Hove lies to the West; both share the miles of shingle beach. Brighton is a real city by the sea with extensive shopping and a wealth of entertainment, including the Brighton Centre, host to rock shows and ice spectaculars, and the Theatre Royal, where West End productions are often premiered.
PLEASE NOTE: Price is per person and based on two people sharing a twin/double room. Single room supplements and upgrades are not included.

Full Day Excursion to Worthing and Littlehampton
We visit the large seaside town of Worthing, where Oscar Wilde wrote 'The Importance of Being Earnest' whilst on a visit in the 1890s. It is a vibrant place with an attractive town centre. Nearby Littlehampton on the estuary of the River Arun is simply delightful with an award-winning beach, bustling marina and attractive harbour.
Full Day Excursion to the Bluebell Railway and Sheffield Park Gardens
We revisit the Halcyon days of steam to travel the Bluebell Railway through the gentle Sussex Weald before exploring the extensive splendour of Sheffield Park Gardens, a magnificent landscape garden surrounding four lakes, laid out in the 18th century by 'Capability' Brown.
