|Travel by Coach||Days|
Join us in Eastbourne for a wonderful getaway. Explore vibrant Brighton with its beautiful coastal scenery and Regency heritage on our superb included excursion by day, and enjoy fantastic entertainment with your fellow holiday-makers in the evening.
Day One - Home to Eastbourne
Travelling from the interchange, we’ll make our way to the Hotel for a delicious evening meal. (D)
Days Two to Three - Eastbourne
We spend two days in Eastbourne enjoying the very best the resort has to offer. One of the days here will be used for an included excursion to Brighton. The major attractions are of course the beach, pier and Royal Pavillion. The Lanes are a charming collection of backstreets, mostly composed of small shops which made up what was once the small fishing village here. North Laine is the area of the city famous for its alternative nature and is the place to find the city’s wilder side.
The other day is free for you to spend at your leisure in and around Eastbourne and beyond. A highlight is the South Downs Way which starts to the west of the town and carries on past the impressive cliffs at Beachy Head. (B,D)
Day Four - Eastbourne to Home
Time to return home today, as we make our way back to the interchange and then continue home. (B)
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.
We enjoy time in bustling Brighton today, a popular seaside resort offering a wonderful mix of Regency Heritage and specialist shops, followed by a trip to medieval Lewes.
