Friday Christmas Eve

After your home pick up we head to the south and make good progress along the motorways, making our way eastbound. We depart Somerset and head east to Sussex. Our first stop is in Chichester where you have some time at leisure and the chance to explore the world-renowned Cathedral and its Bishop’s Palace Gardens, picturesque Cathedral Close and the Novium Museum. You can enjoy lunch in the Cloisters Cafe or The Exclusive Cake Shop & Tea rooms. We then proceed along the south coast and to the Hadleigh Hotel in in Eastbourne, our base for 4 nights. Relax into the festive mood with pre dinner drinks in the lounge bar. Dinner is served - a taste of things to come! Tonight’s competition is a ‘Table Quiz’ with a chance to win a bottle of wine with Boxing Day Dinner. Eyes down for bingo followed by music, dancing and laughter.

Sat Christmas Day

Today we have a half day visit to Battle. Named for The Battle of Hastings, the most famous conflict on English soil, this compact market town grew up alongside the battleground, tranquil medieval abbey and surrounding ancient woodlands – largely unchanged to this day. Celebratory bonfires and battle re-enactments, a year-round programme of lively, friendly events, plus an annual festival of contemporary arts, theatre and music, are all features of its enduring heritage. In the afternoon there is Fun Bingo with your host. In the evening a sumptuous Christmas Dinner awaits - with crackers, trimmings and if you have been good you may get a visit from the man in red himself! After dinner there is another chance to win big at bingo followed by music and dancing.

Sunday Boxing Day

Today we spend the day at leisure in our home resort of Eastbourne. Perhaps you can get some of your Christmas shopping done? Discover a wide range of shops in Eastbourne from high street shopping at The Beacon to the quaint Victorian shopping streets of Little Chelsea. For those staying in, there are afternoon games with your host at 3pm in the lounge. The theme for tonight is ‘Wild West, yeehaa. Happy Hour from 5.30 – 6.30pm £2.50 House Bar. Followed by our entertainers for bingo, music, dancing and laughter in the Ballroom.

Monday Day 4

After breakfast it's time to load the coach and to start our journey home, but before we leave Sussex, we make our way to Worthing for a coffee stop and time to explore this delightful seaside town with its World Famous Pier. We then continue to Bognor Regis, affectionately known as England’s Sunshine Capital with its promenade, long beach, friendly town and cosy cafes. We then make our early afternoon departure for the West Country to meet up with the feeder coaches who will conclude your journey back home.
