BRIGHTON & WORTHING (FULL DAY): We travel via Beachy Head, famous for its spectacular white cliffs and dramatic coastline created by the Seven Sisters landmark. After a photo opportunity we head to Brighton, from the exotic Royal Pavilion to the British Airways i360 observation tower, Brighton has a wealth of attractions and no seaside day out would be complete without a visit to Brighton Palace Pier or the Sea Life Centre, the World's Oldest Aquarium.


(FULL DAY): Located on the seafront overlooking the famous flower decked promenade bandstand and beautiful Victorian pier, our hotel is situated perfectly to help you get the most out of your free day. The Eastbourne Lifeboat Museum and the Winter Gardens are a leisurely walk away or perhaps you would prefer to take a ride on Eastbourne's Miniature Steam Railway.


CASTLE & HASTINGS (FULL DAY): We visit Herstmonceux Castle, Gardens & Grounds (with admission included). Set within 300?acres of carefully managed woodland with themed formal gardens, this 15th century moated castle embodies the history of medieval England and the romance of renaissance Europe. We also visit Hastings, home to the largest beach?launched fishing fleet in Europe and where the remains of the first castle in England to be built by William the Conqueror is preserved.


RAILWAY & BORDE HILL GARDENS (FULL DAY): All aboard! Re?visit the romantic age of the Steam Engine with a return journey on the Bluebell Line Railway, one of the first preserved heritage lines in the country and home to one of the finest collections of vintage steam locomotives from British Railways. We also visit Borde Hill Gardens, where you can enjoy a little free time exploring this stunningly beautiful and botanically rich heritage garden situated in the heart of Sussex.
