Pre-Christmas Cheer On The South Coast
It's beginning to look at lot like Christmas, so why not celebrate twice this year? Treat yourself to a fun-filled festive weekend before anyone else. Who cares about the weather when there's good company, mulled wine, a traditional Christmas dinner, live entertainment, a Gala dinner and a visit from Santa on the agenda? Staying in a lovely seaview hotel in one of the UK's favourite coastal towns, come and blow the cobwebs away in beautiful Bognor Regis and make the magic of Christmas come early.
PLEASE NOTE: Price is per person and based on two people sharing a twin/double room. Single room supplements and upgrades are not included.
DAY 1 - Travel south with a stop at the impressive Guildford Cathedral. Built only in 1936 and prominently situated on Stag Hill, the brick exterior belies the stunning nave and various chapels inside. There is also a café and shop. Enjoy a little sparkling Christmas cheer on board and a festive thank you from all of us at Crusader!
Continue to the coast to check into 3* Best Western Beachcroft Hotel just outside Bognor Regis. Welcome mulled wine on arrival to galvanise the Christmas Spirit. Enjoy a traditional turkey dinner this evening with a glass of wine, quiz, bingo and an appearance from a very special visitor. 3 nights DBB
DAY 2 - Charming Chichester - Just a short drive to the lively Georgian market town of Chichester, the county town of West Sussex, located at the foot of the South Downs, is almost entirely encircled by its medieval walls. There will be time at leisure this morning to explore the streets of elegant 18th century town houses as well as the magnificent cathedral. Don't forget that Saturday is market day. Head back to the hotel in plenty of time to enjoy afternoon tea and biscuits with a special Crusader cash bingo session. Dinner and live entertainment this evening.
DAY 3 - South Downs Scenic Drive and Worthing - Enjoy a morning drive through the rolling hills of the South Downs National Park's landscapes, full of breath-taking views, hidden gems and quintessentially English scenery. A rich tapestry of wildlife, landscapes and tranquillity weave together a story of people and place in harmony. Make a stop in the traditional seaside town of Worthing with its famous pier (winner of 2019 Pier of the Year Award). Afternoon tea, biscuits and Crusader bingo this afternoon before a New Year's Eve Gala dinner with live entertainment and a glass of fizz!
DAY 4 - After a leisurely breakfast, it's homeward bound with a stop en-route at Polhill Garden Centre (for some Christmas shopping?). Then it's onto interchange and your home towns this evening.
