Do you like to be beside the seaside? Do you like to be by the sea? Do you like to walk along the prom prom prom where the brass band plays tiddley om pom pom.
We do, and on behalf of Chairman Jonathan, Sarah and I are delighted to invite you to the Eastbourne Senate weekend “by the seaside” in Eastbourne.
It’s a beautiful part of the world boasting some great attractions and some outstanding scenery. Our base for the weekend is The View Hotel right on the seafront promenade.
Our Friday evening will be an informal relaxed evening acknowledging that as a south coast town, it will be a bit of a trek for some. The main hotel restaurant will be open for Senators and their partners to dine at their convenience, meet up with friends old and new and simply relax together. The iconic Bandstand is a short walk from the hotel and there may be a tribute act on.
Saturday day time
On the Saturday, our coach tour will take in a number of key Eastbourne visitor attractions including a visit to Herstmonceux Castle Estate with its beautiful Elizabethan Gardens and Castle for a tour round. We’re planning a stop in Alfriston, a quintessentially English Village in the heart of East Sussex, with it’s National Trust Clergy House. We will also take in the Birling Gap, a fabulous National Trust site with lovely walks across the cliff tops. The views are outstanding and remind us of the tremendous heritage and iconic nature of the White Cliffs that straddle the South East Coast. We’ll be stopping off for lunch (and doubtless a few bubbles) during the day.
Saturday evening will be a Black tie gala dinner with pre-dinner drinks and a chance to glam up for the evening.
We do have thoughts as to what we might do on the Sunday for those that wish to extend their stay which could involve a visit to the marina in Eastbourne and lunch at one of the water side restaurants before delegates start their journey home. (Note this would not be included in the costs)
Costs for the weekend will be in the order of £225/£240 per person (tbc) for the weekend (with the exception of Sunday) for dinner, bed and breakfast for 2 nights in the hotel along with Saturday day time activities and coach travel.
