Sussex Bygone Years Description
Sussex is a joy to behold with the county seamlessly linking coast and countryside together. Here we combine Roman heritage with the region’s industrial past, a fairytale castle and time to explore our favourite aspects independently.
Sussex Bygone Years Itinerary
Monday We depart Cornwall in the morning and travel to our coastal hotel on Hayling Island. We will take a leisurely lunch break en route.
Tuesday Our first stop today is the Weald and Downland Living Museum, location of the ‘The Repair Shop’. A hidden gem conserving the past for the future, you will see what life was really like for people living in years gone by. We then take a short hop into Surrey to the pretty town of Guildford which boasts a stunning high street with historic setts and beautiful architecture.
Wednesday Wednesday is market day in the Roman cathedral city of Chichester and we have time to enjoy the delightful town, Cathedral or the Novium Museum. In the afternoon we visit Fishbourne Roman Palace and the recreated gardens. Known to be the largest Roman home and the earliest gardens found anywhere in the country.
Thursday Today we head to Arundel Castle, a finely preserved home with fascinating furniture, tapestries and rare collection of paintings. It is situated in magnificent grounds overlooking the River Arun and boasts beautiful award winning tropical gardens with quirky stumpery, kitchen garden, glasshouses and fragrant rose garden. There will be time to stroll to the charming market town of Arundel which overlooks the river and combines history with urban chic.
