Eastbourne has clean inviting beaches predominantly of shingle leading to sand at low tide and offering excellent bathing. There's plenty to see and do with first class shops, museums, carnivals, shows, concerts, dancing in the Winter Gardens and cinemas. There is also a large variety of sporting facilities, whether you want to play or spectate, such as boating, bowls, golf, putting, and walking on the South Downs.
PLEASE NOTE: Price is per person and based on two people sharing a twin/double room. Single room supplements and upgrades are not included.
FIVE DAY (FOUR NIGHT) TOUR
Full Day Excursion to Bateman's
Preserved as it was decorated and furnished at the time to Kipling's death in 1936, including his writing desk, pipe and paperweight, this relatively modest Jacobean mansion and its surroundings inspired many works of poetry and prose (entrance included in the tour cost). On our return we make a brief visit to Bexhill.
Full Day Excursion to Michelham Priory
Dating back almost 800 years, this former Augustine monastery (entrance included in the tour cost) was converted to a Tudor manor house following the dissolution, and later served as a WW2 evacuation centre. This varied history and the extensive moat feeding a restored water mill, make for a fascinating day out. On our return we make a brief stop at Alfriston.
