A former Augustine Priory, established in the 13th century, Michelham Priory contains a number of historic buildings all of which are Grade I or Grade II listed. The condition of the buildings is of particular note, being between 400 and 800 years old, many with original features to a large extent. The mill was restored to full working order in the 1990s and is a fascinating example of how these watermills worked. There are a number of other attractions at the priory that showcase how the sight has functioned through its history.
With its cobbled streets and timber framed houses the town of Rye has a beautiful centre, great for wandering around for a couple of hours. Walking up to the castle allows for great views across out to Dungeoness and the English Channel. We’ll then carry onto Battle, which grew up around an Abbey built on the exact spot where Harold, King of England died during the Battle of Hastings. The ruins of the Abbey and Battlefield give an interesting history of the battle and its effect on more than 950 years of British history.
The stylish Burlington Hotel, with its Grade II listed façade and elegant interior, enjoys beautiful views overlooking the famous Carpet Gardens and Pier. This Eastbourne hotel’s location is approximately half a mile’s level walk from the resort’s shopping centre. Eastbourne is one of our best loved holiday destinations. The elegant sea front, lined with the Carpet Gardens, is great for a leisurely stroll. The resort offers a variety of first class entertainment. Eastbourne breaks also offer the opportunity to explore the local area with popular days out including visits to Battle, Hastings, Bluebell Railway, Leeds Castle, Chartwell House and Brighton to name just a few.
