|Travel by Coach|
|2 Included Excursions|
Today we will travel to Eastbourne via the interchange, following check-in to The Majestic Hotel we will enjoy a tasty evening meal.
Days Two to Four:
Over the next three days we have included two excursions. We will go to the town of Lewes, a quaint market town nestled amongst the South Downs. There are sights to see, the castle and Anne of Cleaves house are highlights, however, simply wandering round the many independent shops in town certainly makes for a nice afternoon. We’ll also take a trip out to Royal Tunbridge Wells, traditionally a spa town; Queen Victoria regularly made the trip here from London to take to the town’s waters. The other day is free for you to spend at your leisure. An Eastbourne highlight is the South Downs Way which starts to the west of the town and carries on past the impressive cliffs at Beachy Head and beyond
After breakfast we depart and make our way home.

Majestic Eastbourne Hotel
At the Majestic Hotel you will stay right on the main street along Eastbourne’s Royal Parade, close to Redoubt Fort, the world famous Carpet Gardens and the Victorian pier.
Eastbourne has been a favourite destination on the south coast for many years and the town has recently seen a revival in some of its most famous attractions. The hotel is within a short walk of Eastbourne Pier, which was recently renovated after a devastating fire in 2014. The pier has been home to Victorian Tea Rooms and the Camera Obscura for more than 100 years.
Venturing further afield you can enjoy fantastic landscapes with rolling green hills and chalk cliffs in the dramatic South Downs which begin just to the west of the town. Eastbourne train station is around 15 minutes’ walk away from the hotel and from here Lewes and bohemian Brighton are just a short train ride away.
In the hotel you can enjoy fantastic breakfast and evening meals with snacks available from the bar throughout the day. As well as the relaxing lounge and open fronted bar area giving great views of the seafront, the hotel also has a beautiful sun terrace - the perfect place to sit and watch the world go by.
Excursion to Royal Tunbridge Wells
Today we'll enjoy a trip to Royal Tunbridge Wells, set at the heart of the unspoilt beauty of the Weald countryside and retaining much of its Georgian elegance and charm. Take a walk along the High Rocks crossing a number of bridges as you enjoy the view across High Weald. Or for a more leisurely stroll wander down the Pantiles in the centre of the town, a shopper’s paradise with many independent shops and a number of cafes and pubs for when you fancy a break! Hall’s Bookshop is worth a look as much for its charm as its eclectic collection of publications.
Jaunt to Lewes
We venture inland to the pretty town of Lewes. The town has some interesting sights, including the Castle, which gives great views across the local area, and Anne of Cleaves house which is a fantastic reproduction of how people worked and lived in Tudor times. Otherwise, the town is fairly unique in that it has a large number of small, independent businesses which make up the shopping options and has largely rejected the ubiquitous big brand shops that make up many high streets. This opportunity to explore different shops is certainly not to be missed.
