Itinerary
Day 1: Windsor
 
Your holiday begins when you board our private coach in the morning and travel to Windsor. Windsor is famous for its royal connections, with notable landmarks such as Eton College, Frogmore House and of course Windsor Castle, one of The Queen’s three official residences. For open spaces head to the Great Park or take a stroll beside the river. Windsor also offers a range of shops with continental style cafés and restaurants. After some free time in this attractive town we continue to our hotel for your included evening meal.
Day 2: Bluebell Railway - Lewes
 
After your included breakfast we travel to Sheffield Park Station and join the Bluebell Railway, a preserved steam railway that takes you through beautiful countryside and passes period stations. The sound and smells of this beautiful journey will bring back those not too distant memories and allow you to relive the romance of steam locomotion. We disembark at the headquarters of Sheffield Park and have some free time to take in the attractions. You can explore the loco sheds and workshops, discover usual and unusual objects in the museum, check out the model railway, visit the gift shop and enjoy a drink in the Bessemer Arms ale house. Our coach then takes us to Lewes, a county town surrounded by chalk cliffs and dominated by the Norman Castle. Walking around the ancient cobbled streets, you can enjoy the charm and character of the town which is filled with historic buildings including the remains of the Priory and Anne of Cleves House as well as many specialist shops. After some free time we return to our hotel for your included evening meal.
Day 3: Brighton
 
After your included breakfast we travel to Brighton. From a world famous Royal Palace to one of the most popular piers in the country.The best way to view the town is by hopping onto one of the sightseeing open-top buses (not included). The Lanes, the historic 17th century heart of the city, are great to explore with their maze of streets full of designer shops. The bohemian North Laine in particular boasts unusual and eccentric outlets as well as restaurants, cafes and traditional pubs or you can enjoy fish ‘n’ chips on the pier. Brighton Marina is another great place where you can admire the waterfront, browse the shops and discover a range of events and activities usually held here. Later in the day we return to our hotel for your included evening meal.
Day 4: Tunbridge Wells
 
After your included breakfast we travel to Tunbridge Wells. This historic spa town still retains much of its charm and elegance from Georgian Times, when it attracted royals and aristocratics. The colonnaded walkway know as the Pantiles is a popular area lined with boutiques and cafes, as is the unique 200 acre Common located in the town centre. After some free time we return to your local area, arriving back in the mid to late evening.
