Brighton up your week on the South Coast

Based in vibrant Brighton, our fantastic new packaged tour covers some of the best places to visit along the south coast, including the recently opened Leonardslee Gardens.
Day 1 Arrival
We arrive at our hotel in time for dinner.

Day 2 Leonardslee Gardens
We spend today at the colourful Leondardslee Lakes & Gardens, described as the finest woodland gardens in England. First planted in 1801, the Grade I Listed gardens provide outstanding scenery throughout the year. Famed for impressive displays of Rhododendrons, Azaleas, Camellias, Magnolias and Bluebells, additional attractions include a renowned rock garden, a doll's house museum and a rare colony of wallabies!

Day 3 Bluebell Railway & Regency Brighton
This morning, we embark on a steam train journey from Sheffield Park to East Grinstead on the Bluebell Railway, the UK's first preserved standard gauge passenger railway. The afternoon will be spent in Brighton itself, where we have free time at leisure to enjoy the narrow “Lanes” behind the hotel. The Lanes are home to a multitude of independent shops, galleries and restaurants. Alternatively, visit the exotic Royal Pavilion, which boasts a colourful history and several unusual influences, making it a must see for any visitor.

Day 4 Canal Boat Cruise & Arundel Castle
We spend this morning on a relaxing 90 minute circular cruise on the Wey and Arun Canal. Embarking at Loxwood, we cruise along the idyllic Loxwood Link section of the canal on the Surrey/West Sussex border. We then head for the coastal town of Arundel,
where we have free time for lunch before we visit Arundel Castle, one of the longest inhabited castles in England, renowned for its beautiful gardens.
