Holiday Itinerary


MONDAY We travel south, with suitable stops en route.

TUESDAY A day at leisure to explore St Leonards and Hastings. Enjoy the classical elegance of St Leonards, and historic Hastings Old Town, home to the largest beach-launched fishing fleet in Europe, and where you'll find the remains of the first castle in England to be built by William the Conqueror. Explore the pretty streets, with their interesting quirky shops and Tudor buildings, and perhaps visit the Shipwreck Museum or the award winning Jerwood Gallery for modern and contemporary art.

WEDNESDAY This morning we visit Rye. Once surrounded by the sea, this fortified hilltop town no longer harbours warships, and is instead home to the local fishing fleet. Here you will have time to explore the
cobbled lanes lined with fine medieval houses, and enjoy views of Romney Marsh from this vibrant market town. On in the afternoon to Great Dixter House and Garden, one of the most famous and provocative gardens of the 20th century and home to the late Christopher Lloyd, a much loved eccentric plantsman and writer.

THURSDAY Today we visit Eastbourne, a fabulous resort with a distinct cosmopolitan atmosphere. The superb level promenades bordered by banks of informal floral displays, and with plenty of seating, are perfect for a stroll by the sea.There are delightful seafront cafes & bars where you can pause for a drink in idyllic surroundings, then there's the popular Victorian Pier, the beautifully preserved 1930's Bandstand, and fabulous shopping in the large airy shopping mall, outdoor markets, and specialist & antique shops.

FRIDAY We commence our return journey with suitable stops en route.
