Itinerary

Day 1

Join your coach this morning, and head towards the wonderful East Sussex coast and our lovely resort of Eastbourne with convenient coffee/lunch stops along the way. On arrival at the Burlington Hotel there is time to settle in and perhaps take a stroll along the prom before enjoying our first delicious dinner in the evening.

Day 2-3

Eastbourne has earned the title of ‘Sunniest Place in Britain’. Whilst we cannot guarantee the weather, it remains a popular holiday destination at any time of the year and has always had a reputation for being a place to come for quiet relaxation. Situated on the South Coast of England, its old-fashioned sweet shops and prominent Victorian buildings will leave you with a nostalgic feeling, whilst its serene coastal views are simply beautiful. Experience all this charming seaside resort has to offer and enjoy its stunning beaches, delightful seafront cafés and pretty gardens plus the iconic 150-year-old pier can’t be missed! 

Enjoy time at leisure to explore Eastbourne or join us on our included trip to the fabulous regency resort of Brighton. Take a stroll through ‘The Lanes’, the famous twisting alleyways full of jewellers, antiques and designer boutiques. Brighton Pier brings back days of yesteryear or take a flight 135 metres above the ground on the British Airways i360.

We also include a half day excursion to the lovely historic county town of Lewes. Although surrounded by chalk cliffs, the townscape is dominated by the remains of a Norman castle and is also home to the handsome townhouse of Anne of Cleves. Lewes has many bookshops, art galleries, boutiques and antique centres, and the restaurants, cafés and pubs offer delicious choices all year round with real emphasis on local produce.

Day 4

After breakfast, it is time to say farewell to the Burlington Hotel. After stopping for a coffee/lunch break, relax as you continue homewards.

Eastbourne

INCLUDED Visitor DestinationOften described as the ‘suntrap of the south’, Eastbourne is an elegant resort situated on the Sussex coast. The pleasant long, tree-lined promenade, colourful gardens and Victorian seafront with its 19th century pier befits a town famous for its charm and dignity. The Towner Art Gallery contains world-class exhibitions of modern and contemporary art or browse the shops on the quaint Victorian streets of Little Chelsea. Alternatively simply take it easy, watching the world go by on the prom or in one of the many tea rooms.

Brighton

INCLUDED 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!

Lewes

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.
