Where the fertile landscapes of Kent & Sussex meet the sea, delightful seaside resorts or ancient historic towns provide a perfect base for exploration, join us as we visit some of the best known visitor attractions that these two counties offer.

 

 

DAY ONE

We depart from your home with our exclusive home pick-up service, join your tour coach and travel south to Kent with comfort stops enroute.  Arriving at your hotel late afternoon, tea/coffee & biscuits will be served whilst your luggage is taken to your room, time to relax before dinner.

 

DAY TWO

Today’s excursion takes us first via the charming village of Pluckley, setting for TV’s ‘Darling Buds of May’ and from here we continue south to the coast and the small resort of Hythe.  Here we join the world’s smallest public railway – the ‘Romney, Hythe & Dymchurch Railway’ for the journey to New Romney, it has an impressive Norman church in the centre of the town and was once one of the original Cinque Ports of England.

 

DAY THREE

This morning we visit the spa town of Royal Tunbridge Wells, with its elegant streets and Georgian buildings and famous Pantiles, a colonnaded shopping area in the town centre.  We enjoy a guided tour of this historic town and discover something of its 400-year history.

 

DAY FOUR

Today we take a leisurely journey to Sheffield Park and the famous ‘Bluebell Railway’; we will enjoy a ride along the 11-mile route to East Grinstead.  The medieval town of East Grinstead has one of the longest runs of timber framed buildings in the country and the High Street is well worth exploring with its independent and select shops, bars and restaurant.  We spend the afternoon here before returning later to our hotel.

 

DAY FIVE

After a leisurely breakfast we depart our hotel for the homeward journey with comfort stops enroute.
