I am sharing five places I visited in September for my very British holiday.
Its not surprising that I thoroughly enjoyed my time in Brighton ans look forward to going there again.
Please see here if you want to read more about my Brighton adventures.
Dungeness is on the south coast of Kent, England. It is well known for have a large shingle beach and is apparently wrongly reported to be 'Britain's only desert'.
I really really liked Dungeness and would like to visit it again perhaps in the spring when the colours are different and the big wide skies clearer.
We also saw Derek Jarmans Garden
Whilst on route, we decided to stop at Rye East Sussex. We arrived in Rye around 8.00am and most places were still closed, so breakfast had to wait, but it did give us the opportunity to wander the town without bumping into many other tourists at this time and take some photographs - see here.
Then it was onwards to Eastbourne, a seaside resort.
Eastbourne Bandstand - The Busiest Bandstand in the UK
Eastbourne Pier and Beach
And finally, Hastings Old Town. a town steeped in so much history.
We walked around The Stade (landing place), home to the largest beach launched fishing fleet in Europe. These are fishing nets huts.
D really wanted to go on the East Hill West Hill lift - see picture above and why not?! It is of national importance and a source of local pride. Its the United Kingdoms steepest funicular railway.a lift that goes up this steep mountain.
The East Hill Lift provides access to Hastings Country Park which overlooks the Rock a Nore and the Old Town. It also provides spectacular views of the Stade (shown earlier).
I am going to throw one more in for luck, the two pictures below are of Winchester where were stopped for a light snack whilst travelling back home to Wales.
Dramatic skies, I think we got very lucky with the weather on our very British holiday.
