Today we travel to the Bluebell train line to board the steam train.

We then visit Sheffield Park Gardens which are an internationally renowned landscape garden with water features. We return back to the hotel in time for our evening meal.

Time at leisure today to explore Brighton. Either take a walk along the prom, a stroll to the pier, or visit the quirky antique shops and boutiques of “The Lanes”. Or why not visit the Royal Pavilion, it is a former royal residence located in Brighton. It was built in three stages, beginning in 1787, as a seaside retreat for George, Prince of Wales.

After breakfast we travel to the market town of Arundel where we have a short stay; here there are independent shops, contemporary art galleries, restaurants, and not forgetting the famous Arundel Castle. We then continue our journey to Chichester where time is given for you to explore and have some lunch (not included).
