Worthing is known for its temperate climate and its pier, prom and seaside parks. Moving on to Arundel you will have free time to discover this historic town with its huge Gothic cathedral and medieval castle.
We visit the site of the Battle of Hastings, the town of Battle in Kent. The town grew up around the abbey that was built here to commemorate the battle, with its altar on the spot where Harold Godwinson died, giving vistory to William the Conqueror in 1066.
Spend the rest of your time exploring Eastbourne, a highlight is the nearby South Downs Way which starts to the west of the town and carries on to the impressive cliffs at Beachy Head and beyond. (B,D)

The South Downs National Park begins just outside of town and is easily accessible and even by walking you can easily reach Beachy Head and a little further along the coast, The Seven Sisters. Fashionable Brighton is on the other end of a scenic train ride through the park and here you can see famous sights such as the fashionable Royal Pavilion or enjoy independent shops in The Lanes area of the city.
The hotel has great spaces for relaxing after a busy day in the area, the on-site bar and coffee lounge have huge windows opening out onto the seafront, great for watching the world go by. In the restaurant you can enjoy fantastic meals at breakfast and in the evening, with great and varied menus cooked by our dedicated chefs.
