Itinerary

Description

Join us for a Turkey & Tinsel themed break, staying right near the beach in Eastbourne, where we celebrate the start of the festive season with lots of food and entertainment at the hotel. We also explore the surrounding area with plenty of excursions to enjoy. First a day trip to Brighton, where we have free time to wander the magnificent Regency squares, independent shops and traditional seaside promenades. Next, a visit to the idyllic village of Alfriston via Beachy Head, where we stop for a great photo opportunity of the awe-inspiring seven sisters chalk cliffs – without the usual summer crowds!

Coach Itinerary

Day 1

After joining the coach, we make our way to our hotel and check in. Tonight we enjoy a welcome sherry reception before dinner.

Day 2 – Brighton

We depart after breakfast for our excursion to Brighton, in search of fun and fresh air by the seaside. Well known for its stunning beachfront and iconic Palace Pier, Brighton offers visitors a warm welcome with its blend of modern culture, exotic architecture and seaside pavilions.  Later, we return to the hotel to celebrate our ‘Christmas Day’ with a traditional Christmas dinner and musical entertainment.

 

Day 3 – Optional excursion to Rye & Hastings (£12pp)

On our optional half-day excursion, we have the chance to visit the charming town of Rye, with time to explore the cobbled lanes and soak up the atmosphere provided by the medieval, half-timbered houses. Then we continue our journey through England’s Southeast with a stop at Hastings, made famous by the iconic  Battle of Hastings in 1066.  Soak up the history, wander the preserved Old Town’s winding streets and see the tiny Tudor houses.  In the evening, we enjoy dinner, followed by a Christmas quiz and bingo.


Day 4 – Alfriston

After breakfast, we head to the village of Alfriston, which lies in the valley of the River Cuckmere. The river meanders through the South Downs National Park – where we have a stop at Beachy Head for a photo opportunity of the seven sisters chalk cliffs. Then onward to Alfriston, home to the first ever property bought by the National Trust, the 14th-century Alfriston Clery House, known as a classic example of a Wealden hall house, complete with thatched roof and timber-framed walls. Afterwards, we return to our hotel where we enjoy dinner and evening entertainment.

 

Day 5

After breakfast, we check out of our hotel and head for home.
