Day One: Home to Brighton
We’ll make our way from the interchange to Brighton, where we’ll check in to the Mercure Brighton Seafront and will enjoy an evening meal. (D)

Days Two to Four: Brighton  
We spend the next three days in Brighton, during which time we will be enjoying two included excursions to attractions and locations across Sussex.

We journey along the coast to the resort of Worthing which is famous for its long promenade and its attractive pier and pavilion. We then continue inland to the town of Arundel where we visit its imposing castle. 

We also visit Eastbourne, one of the most popular and traditional seaside resorts in England which is famous for the famous seafront Carpet Gardens and the Redoubt Fortress. On our way back along the coast we will call at the famous beauty spot of Beachy Head where we will take in fabulous views of the English Channel.

You will of course have plenty of time to discover fashionable Brighton during free time. The town of course has famous sights including the magnificent Royal Pavilion, the Victorian Pier  and Brighton Beach, but those venturing a little further will find places like The Lanes and North Laine which have fabulous independent shops.
