Eastbourne

Eastbourne

The popular and elegant seaside town of Eastbourne is one of England’s most appealing resorts famous for its miles of award winning, clean and sandy beaches.

Often referred to as one of the sunniest places in the UK owing to its sheltered position alongside the famous Beachy Head cliff, Eastbourne is a spectacular place to visit.

Brighton

Brighton

Brighton is a cosmopolitan seaside resort offering handsome squares, gracious terraces, fine crescents and distinguished architecture. It offers many attractions for the coach break visitor, from music festivals, arts and culture to great shopping, nightlife and the fabulous seafront.

Brighton became a popular destination with day trippers from London during the 18th Century after the arrival of the railway in 1841 and during the Victorian era saw the building of many major attractions including the Grand Hotel, along with the West and Palace Piers.

Hastings

Hastings

The coastal town of Hasting forms part of the famous 1066 Country, home to Sussex’s finest countryside and coastlines, as well as some of the most historic sites in the UK. Here we can find the remains of the first castle to be built in England by William the Conqueror and wander through the preserved Old Town with its winding narrow streets and picturesque half-timbered houses. 

Battle

Battle

1066 Country is home to Sussex’s finest countryside and coastlines, as well as some of the most historic sites in the UK. Perhaps the most well-known is Battle, a designated High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the location of William the Conqueror’s famous victory in the Battle of Hastings. As a result of the victory, the Abbey of St Martin was built between 1070 and 1094, with the altar believed to have been placed on the spot where Harold the Saxon king fell. Today, both the Abbey ruins and the famous battlefield are well worth a visit and are cared for by English Heritage. You can find out more about the town’s fascinating heritage in the Battle Museum of Local History. There is also a treasure trove of shops scattered along the High Street, as well as plenty of cafés and restaurants to enjoy.

Lewes

Lewes

Lewes is a vibrant market town surrounded by spectacular chalk cliffs. Stroll along the winding streets, discover the quirky antique shops and admire the historic buildings, including the Norman castle which looks over the town.

Alfriston

Alfriston

The lovely village of Alfriston is nestled in the valley of the River Cuckmere in the stunning South Downs National Park. There’s plenty to explore, from the famous St Andrews Church, known as the Cathedral of the South Downs, and the clergy house, the National Trust’s first property, to a wide range of charming gift shops, tearooms and galleries.

Rye

Rye

The ancient hilltop town of Rye is part of the spectacular 1066 Country and once played an important role in the defence of England’s south coast. With its historic charm and crooked Tudor buildings, it is no wonder that the town regularly attracts film crews in search of authentic settings for period productions. Stroll along the sloping, cobbled lanes dotted with cosy pubs, independent boutiques and contemporary restaurants, discover secret passages which were once the haunt of smugglers, or head to St Mary’s Church tower to enjoy the lovely views, dominated by the terracotta roofs of Rye’s many timbered houses. Rye Castle Museum is also well worth a visit, boasting a unique 18th-century fire engine and fascinating relics from the town’s past.

Tenderden

Tenderden

Located in Ashford, Kent, the lovely town of Tenterden is known for the charm of its wide High Street, lined with varied shops and old-fashioned style buildings all underneath tall, leafy trees. The busy town centre is home to the usual high street shops but also a good selection of smaller boutiques and antique shops, as well as craft and book shops. Tenterden stands on the edge of the Weald, overlooking the valley of the River Roth.
