FULL DAY: We start today’s excursion by visiting medieval Rye, with its quaint cobbled streets and historic half-timbered buildings. In the afternoon we travel along the coast to Hastings, overlooked by William the Conqueror’s castle. The castle is accessible by cliff lift and the ‘Story of 1066’ is featured in the grounds.

FULL DAY: Today we head for one of the highlights of the week deep into the heart of the Sussex countryside to board the Bluebell Line Railway. Re-opened in 1960, with immaculately restored  stations, vintage steam locomotives and antiquated carriages, this is regarded as one of our best preserved railways. On our way back we take time to visit the picturesque village of Alfriston and admire the views at Beachy Head.

FREE DAY TO EXPLORE: Enjoy a day at leisure to explore Eastbourne at your own pace, from its bustling town centre, to the beautiful seafront and carpet gardens.
