The long Easter weekend is the perfect time of year to enjoy a relaxing getaway. Departing on Good Friday and returning on Easter Monday, on our Easter Breaks you can take in the scenic splendours of springtime as you enjoy everything that’s great about a Shearings weekend break. We’ll even treat you to a free Easter gift on Easter Sunday!
On this trip we will be staying in Eastbourne and enjoying all the good times the resort has to offer. On our included excursions we will visit the seaside town of Worthing, famed for its sunny and mild microclimate. We will then head inland to Arundel, on the edge of the South Downs; the town has a well preserved centre with a number of listed buildings, an impressive Roman Catholic Cathedral and an imposing castle.
Day One - Home to Eastbourne
We’ll make our way from the interchange to Eastbourne, and after check in at the Burlington Hotel we will enjoy a sumptuous evening meal. (D)
Days Two and Three - Eastbourne
One day will be devoted to our included excursion which will take us along the coast to Worthing and then inland to Arundel. Worthing is a grand Victorian seaside resort and a stroll down the prom will help you understand how the place inspired so many writers of the 19th century when it was a hub for literary types. Arundel is a hugely historical town with tales contained in every building and street in town. The other day is free for you to spend at your leisure. 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 and beyond. (B,D)
Day Four - Eastbourne to Home
Time to say goodbye today; we depart after breakfast and make our way to the interchange before returning home. (B)
Little beats relaxing in in a modern coffee bar and lounge with unbeatable views across the sea front as you watch the world go by. At the Burlington Hotel you can enjoy all this in a central location close to all of Eastbourne’s finest attractions.
The world-famous Carpet Gardens, Redoubt Fortress and Eastbourne Pier are all just a stone’s throw away and the town centre with an array of shops and restaurants are just a 10 minute walk away.
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. For even greater space and comfort why not upgrade to a standard plus, superior or premier room during your stay?
