Take the East Hill up to Hastings Country Park or the West Hill Lift to the ruins of Hastings Castle.

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.

After a photo opportunity we head to Alfriston & Lewes. Alfriston is a must-visit village said to be one of the most visited destinations in the country. The beautiful country town of Lewes. Although surrounded by chalk cliffs, the townscape of medieval streets and tiny 'twittens' is dominated by the remains of a Normal castle and is also home to the handsome townhouse of Anne of Cleves (fourth wife of King Henry VII).
