Days 2-3

Enjoy hearty breakfasts every day, enjoy the facilities and fabulous setting of your hotel. You can, of course, spend all of your time relaxing or enjoying the facilities in and around the hotel.

With its fabulous medieval Cathedral, the charming butter cross in the centre of its Roman street plan and buildings from every era, Chichester lives and breathes its history whilst also being home to a host of fabulous independent shops, pubs, restaurants, pavement cafés and a number of galleries. Be sure to spend time exploring all that this ancient city has to offer. In addition we will also enjoy a visit to the lovely, unspoilt market town of Arundel dominated by its castle and cathedral.

We include a visit to Portsmouth, one of the UK's premier waterfront destinations with miles of sea views and centuries of history. You can discover the city's modern attractions or explore the area's maritime heritage. The fantastic Historic Dockyard has many superb attractions including HMS Victory, Nelson’s famous flagship from the Battle of Trafalgar and the Mary Rose Museum, which displays the remains and recovered objects of the flagship of Henry VIII.

Day 4

After our final breakfast today we board our comfortable coach for the last time and head for home with suitable stops on the way, full of memories with our newly made friends.


Chichester is a Roman cathedral city and the only city in West Sussex. There is history on every corner, from the Tudor Market Cross to the dominant Norman Cathedral. The city is mostly pedestrianised with lots of spaces to enjoy lunch outside and the Cathedral and museum are right in the heart of the city.


The beautiful market town of Arundel is rich in history and culture, and dominated by its Gothic cathedral and Norman castle, straight out of a medieval picture book, home to the Dukes of Norfolk for over a thousand years. You will discover more than you’d expect in the town that combines a thousand years of history with independent shops, contemporary galleries, places to eat and drink and great attractions. Arundel really is one of the gems of Sussex.
