This interesting tour has Eastbourne as its base and visits the beautiful gardens of Sissinghurst and the castle at Bodiam. We enjoy two rail journeys, one between Bodiam and Tenterden and the other on the wonderful Bluebell Line with a lunch included.
Day 1 After the usual taxi pick ups, we travel via Alfriston and Beachy Head to Eastbourne to arrive early afternoon. The rest of the day is free.
Day 2 We travel to Sheffield Park Station and board the Bluebell Railway for a 1½ hour round trip through beautiful countryside while enjoying a ploughmans lunch. Our afternoon is spent in the pretty town of Tunbridge Wells.
Day 3 Today we visit Sissinghurst Castle Gardens, a remarkable garden created in the old ruins as a series of ‘outdoor rooms’. We return by coach via Rye, with its cobbled streets and beautifully preserved Tudor and Georgian houses.
Day 4 A wonderful day with a visit to Bodiam Castle followed by a return journey aboard a steam hauled train on the Kent and East Sussex Railway.
Day 5 A free day to enjoy the delights of Eastbourne.
Day 6 We depart from Eastbourne after a leisurely breakfast and make our way back to the local area, arriving home early afternoon.
