BrightonINCLUDED Visitor DestinationAlso known as ‘Doctor Brighton’ and ‘London by the Sea’, the unique blend of outrageous architecture and quaint streets has made Brighton England’s most fashionable resort for over 200 years. Wander ‘The Lanes’, the oldest quarter filled with unique shopping opportunities, lined with 17th century fishermen’s cottages. Take a stroll along the famous pier for some traditional fun. Brighton's famous pebble beach is a great place to enjoy your fish & chips, and for the more adventurous try a ride on the newest attraction, Brighton i360 which takes you on a gentle journey 162 metres above the town for a stunning birds eye view for miles. If history and architecture are your thing the lovely Royal Pavilion is a must see - the Prince Regent's original pleasure palace made for entertaining. Brighton has something for everyone, and the fun never stops!
HastingsSet between hills that reach to the sea, Hastings is an oyster that comes with its own grit, where the smooth bustle of modern life rubs along with the rough edges of tradition. Look up and you’ll see the castle ruins watching over the town, as they have in one guise or another for nearly a thousand years. The three-mile seafront stretches from the fishing fleet at the eastern end through the hustle and bustle of the arcades and funfair rides, to the pier and unique double-decker promenade bottle alley, arriving finally at peaceful Grosvenor Gardens.
RyeA medieval citadel huddled against invaders and the sea, Rye reveals its history gently. Today it’s home to a myriad of art, curiosities and cosy pubs, as well as contemporary restaurants serving the best Sussex has to offer, from land and sea. Built on smuggled secrets and timeless tales, Rye has nooks and crannies to explore and distant views across Romney Marsh to ponder.
With its medieval streets, old English churches and tiny twittens (a Sussex word for alleyway) visitors are allowed a glimpse into the true essence of bygone Lewes. Although surrounded by chalk cliffs, the townscape is dominated by the remains of a Norman castle. Lewes also claims host to numerous contemporary art galleries and historic & special interest sites including the once mighty Priory of St. Pancras - a casualty of the dissolution of the monasteries.
Lewes is a market town of small, specialist, independent retailers and on certain days, the subtle aromas wafting from Harvey’s Brewery will attract any visitor to Cliffe High Street. Bookshops, boutiques and antique centres sit alongside individual craft workshops, and the restaurants, cafes, and pubs offer delicious choices all year round with real emphasis on local produce.
