COACH HOLIDAY ITINERARY
DAY 1 Travel to the south coast today stopping at Teapot Island, near Yalding along the River Medway in Kent. The cafeteria offers a wide range of different food and cream teas and we also have the opportunity to visit the Teapot Expedition boasting approx. 6,700 teapots from extraordinary to exquisite (price not included, approx. £2pp). We arrive at our seafront hotel this afternoon which is situated along the Royal Parade offering spectacular views across the bay. We have time to relax before our evening meal.
DAY 2 After breakfast visit the impressive town of Lewes, nestled amongst the beautiful South Downs. The town is steeped in history and heritage. Time to purchase lunch here before continuing to Firle Place, which has been part of English History for over 500 years and boasts a celebrated collection of old master’s paintings, porcelain and furniture. Take a stroll around the formal gardens with the parterre at the front entrance to the north borders. These form part of the 19th century garden which is planted with mixed borders of shrubs and herbaceous perennials. The centre piece of the lawns is the majestic Victorian fountain, a ‘must see’! Return to hotel with time to freshen up before our evening meal.
DAY 3 Today we have a day at leisure in Eastbourne. The hotel is located right opposite the sea with a bus stop just outside. Today we can explore the town, visit the pier or take a stroll along the beach. Relax in the hotel bar with a drink or sit outside on the terrace and watch the world go by.
