Continue up to Beachy Head, past the Belle Tout lighthouse and on to the Birling Gap visitor centre for a coffee stop and the opportunity to view the Seven Sisters cliffs from the beach. The tour continues through the Cuckmere Valley, Seaford and Newhaven, with more great views of the South Downs National Park before returning to the hotel.  Those who wish to leave the coach on the seafront for perhaps lunch at Harry Ramsden's or a bit of shopping with the coach returning later to collect you.

Bluebell Railway & Sheffield Park Gardens

Enjoy a leisurely breakfast before heading up to Sheffield Park Gardens to join the Bluebell Railway, one of the first preserved heritage lines in the country. One of the finest collections of vintage steam locomotives and carriages many of which were preserved straight out of service from British Railways. Return fare included (Sheffield Park to East Grinstead and return)

On your return spend some time in this tranquil Grade I listed garden, Sheffield Park. A horticultural work of art formed through centuries of landscape design, with influences of 'Capability' Brown and Humphry Repton. Four lakes form the heart of the garden, with paths circulating through the glades and wooded areas surrounding them. The River Ouse runs across the bottom of the parkland and the original meanders are still visible winding across the meadow. This area has been transformed into a wildlife haven and is home to a diverse range of species including kingfishers, birds of prey, butterflies, and dragonflies. Admission included.

Day 5 - With many happy memories head back to interchange and onto your home towns.
