Itinerary

Day 1 - Outward Travel

Day 2 - Lewes & "Getting to know you"

  • Its medieval streets, old English churches and tiny twittens (a Sussex word for alleyway) allow visitors a glimpse into the true essence of bygone Lewes.
  • Surrounded by chalk cliffs, the townscape is dominated by the remains of a Norman castle and is home to the townhouse of Anne of Cleves (closed through much of Dec/Jan).
  • Lewes also claims host to numerous contemporary art galleries and historic & special interest sites including the once mighty Priory of St. Pancras (entry fees may apply).
  • Enjoy a relaxed chat with your fellow guests over a cuppa and cake.

Day 3 - Day at Leisure

  • Today is left free to allow for relaxing in the hotel or exploring the local area.
  • Don't hesitate to enquire with the hotel reception regarding local attractions and travel options.

Day 4 - Rye & Hastings

  • Rye is an archetypal medieval town, entered through a powerful stone gateway. The narrow streets, many of them cobbled, rise to a fine old church.
  • Many of the houses on Mermaid Street have interconnecting attics through which smugglers could avoid the excise men.
  • Rye also features a selection of independent boutique shops selling antiques, curios and unique items of furniture.
  • Hastings has undergone extensive regeneration in recent years, the centrepiece of which is the new £15m pier.
  • Attractions include the Shipwreck Museum, Castle and Jerwood Gallery. The Old Town features an array of delightful independent shops and a cliff railway.
  • Hastings also has a miniature steam railway (seasonal variations to opening) which has been open since 1948!
