Breathe in the fresh sea air as you approach the beautiful coastal town of Eastbourne, famous for its lush rolling landscapes, stunning beaches and iconic chalk sea cliffs.
We depart local areas and head south, arriving in Eastbourne mid to late afternoon.
Today we make for the large seaside town of Worthing. Worthing Pier, runner up in the 2016 & 2017 Pier of the Year Award, was built in 1862 and has had a chequered history but remains at the heart of Worthing life.
A day at leisure to enjoy Eastbourne; its seafront is over four miles long with a lovely promenade, and nearby there are the sights of Beachy Head which can be seen from the open topped Sightseeing Bus.
Our destination today is Royal Tunbridge Wells, a large affluent town in western Kent, close to the border of East Sussex. When Queen Victoria made the town part of her regular holiday sojourns it became ‘Royal’ Tunbridge Wells.
After breakfast we retrace our journey home to Yorkshire.
