Sheltered by Beachy Head, sunny Eastbourne boasts all the fun of the seaside with award winning beaches, a traditional bandstand, level promenade, seafront land train, pleasure pier and the famous Carpet Gardens. We stay at the resort’s Strand Hotel, ideally situated on the seafront just a ten minute stroll from the town centre, this great value hotel boasts a comfy bar lounge and sun terrace. We make the most of our time with outings to the historic market town of Lewes followed by a visit to bubbly Brighton where you’ll find a landmark pier and Grade I listed Royal Pavilion. On another day we visit Rye, a storybook town suspended in time. Explore its beautifully preserved dwellings from Medieval, Tudor and Georgian times before we move on to sleepy Bexhill-on-Sea. Our final day out takes us to Worthing with its palm-fringed promenade before continuing to the must-see village of Alfriston on the banks of the Cuckmere River.
