Pre-Christmas Cheer On the South Coast - Turkey & Tinsel

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas, so why not celebrate twice this year? Treat yourself to a fun-filled festive break before anyone else. 

Who cares about the weather when there's good company, mulled wine, a traditional Christmas dinner, live entertainment, a Gala dinner and a visit from Santa on the agenda? Staying in a lovely seaview hotel in one of the UK's favourite coastal towns, come and blow the cobwebs away in beautiful Bognor Regis and make the magic of Christmas come early.

What The Price Includes
  • 4 nights just outside Bognor Regis with festive style dinner & breakfast
  • Tea / coffee after dinner
  • Porterage and welcome mulled wine
  • Excursions as stated
  • Glass of wine with Christmas Dinner on Day 2
  • Glass of sparkling wine at the New Year's Eve Gala dinner
  • Entertainment on two evenings 
  • Prosecco miniature and £10 holiday voucher for each passenger on the coach


Day One :

After joining your holiday coach, travel south with a stop at the impressive Guildford Cathedral. Built only in 1936 and prominently situated on Stag Hill, the brick exterior belies the stunning nave and various chapels inside.

There is also a café and shop. Enjoy a little sparkling Christmas cheer on board and a festive thank you from all of us at Crusader!  Continue to the coast to check into 3* Best Western Beachcroft Hotel just outside Bognor Regis for 4 nights. 

Welcome mulled wine on arrival to galvanise the Christmas Spirit. Candlelit dinner this evening with Christmas carol music to set the mood. DBB

Day Two - Four:

DAY 2 Morning in Arundel - A quaint old town on the River Arun which captures the essence of heritage, urban chic and country pursuits, combining one thousand years of history with independent shops, contemporary art galleries and a thriving foodie scene. 

Please note that Arundel Castle & Gardens, set high on a hill above the town, is closed in Novermber. Head back to the hotel in plenty of time to enjoy a quiz and bingo session. A traditional Christmas turkey dinner with a glass of wine this evening is included.  

DAY 3 Charming Chichester - Just a short drive to the lively Georgian market town of Chichester, the county town of West Sussex, located at the foot of the South Downs, is almost entirely encircled by its medieval walls. 

There will be time at leisure this morning to explore the streets of elegant 18th century town houses as well as the magnificent cathedral. Remember Wednesday is market day! Live entertainment this evening after dinner.

DAY 4 South Downs Scenic Drive and Worthing - Enjoy a morning drive through the rolling hills of the South Downs National Park's landscapes, full of breath-taking views, hidden gems and quintessentially English scenery. A rich tapestry of wildlife, landscapes and tranquillity weave together a story of people and place in harmony. 

Make a stop in the traditional seaside town of Worthing with its famous pier (winner of 2019 Pier of the Year Award). Return to the hotel to glam up for this evening's New Year's Eve Gala dinner with live entertainment and a glass of fizz! 

Day Five  :

After a leisurely breakfast, it's homeward bound with a stop en-route. Then it's onto interchange and your home towns this evening.
