A fashionable seaside resort since the 19th century, Brighton remains a firm favourite today with a famous pier and stunning Royal Pavilion. The colourful network of shopping streets, known locally as the Lanes, provides a fantastic mix of vintage shops, antique stores and quaint cafes.
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.

Time to say goodbye today; we depart after breakfast and make our way to the interchange before returning home. (B)

Full Day: Worthing and Arundel Castle

Half Day: Eastbourne and Beachy Head
We enjoy a jaunt to nearby Eastbourne, where the elegant seafront and attractive promenade draws in the crowds. We continue on to Beachy Head, rising more than 500 feet above the sea below, which is the highest chalk sea cliff in Britain and boasts magnificent views.
