South Coast & Cinque Ports
5 Days Half Board by Coach
Location for the popular TV series, Foyles War, Hastings lies between the eastern edge of the Sussex Weald and the English Channel. The famous Battle of Hastings took place a few miles north of the town and in ancient times it was one of the important Cinque Ports that defended the South Coast with local men and ships providing fleets in pre-navy times. Our holiday is based in neighbouring St Leonards-on-Sea, and features some lovely sightseeing excursions, including the glorious Sussex Downs, and visits to some fascinating inland former ports and the lovely seaside resort of Eastbourne.
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: A full day excursion along the Kent Coast today as we discover three ancient Cinque Ports, dubbed the cradle of the Royal Navy in pre-Tudor times. This morning to medieval Rye, considered one of the best-preserved of the ancient Cinque Ports with its quaint cobbled streets and smuggler’s inns, before we reach New Romney, originally a sea port but now over a mile inland! We continue to Hythe, the central Cinque Port, where fine medieval buildings and a Victorian promenade help retain a nostalgic feel.
Full Day: Today we tour the Sussex Coast and Downs as we make our way to the popular resort of Eastbourne with its elegant seafront and pier. We ascend the vast chalk promontory of Beachy Head where the Downs meet the sea before heading inland to reach the picturesque village of Alfriston.
Half Day: A morning visit to the landmark town of Battle, situated on one of the most famous battlegrounds in Britain, before returning to enjoy the afternoon at leisure.
