SUSSEX COASTAL CURIOS
On this ever popular tour we take you off the beaten track in an attractive part of England to discover some quirky English curios. The day is both entertaining and easy on the feet with the added attraction of sitting together as a group for morning coffee and a chicken lunch included in the tour fee.
We meet today at 10.30am in Bramber (near Steyning on the A283) for morning refreshments included in your tour fee. Many of the old cottages in Bramber were built with flint pilfered from the ruins of the Norman Castle. This is one of the prettiest villages in West Sussex, a frequent winner of the South East in Bloom competition, so we know that your folk will be delighted to know that they’ll be coming back here for lunch.
We begin our day by visiting an architectural masterpiece of national importance – the soaring and many buttressed Gothic chapel of Lancing College -
We return to beautiful Bramber for lunch which today is seasonal chicken with potatoes and vegetables or a vegetarian alternative. Individuals can choose and pay for any bar drinks or desserts that they fancy on the day.
A real treat this afternoon is the quite astonishing ceiling of an otherwise architecturally plain Catholic church at genteel Goring. Here a local artist and parishioner has created a unique reproduction of Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel. It was a labour of love and faith that took five years of neck ache. This must be one of the most unusual churches you’ll ever visit.
Last but not least we drive to the seaside at Worthing. Whilst the decadent Prince Regent established his seaside court at racy Brighton his delicate younger sister came to peaceful Worthing with her mother and aunts to enjoy the sheltered climate afforded by the South Downs. Here Oscar Wilde also came for holidays during one of which he wrote one of his most popular plays -
Worthing is a super place to stop to buy tea to round off our day out before making tracks for home at 4.45pm.
