Great British Seaside: Hastings
Enjoy a day excursion to the historical seaside town of Hastings. Arrive in style on the luxurious vintage carriages.
Board the beautiful vintage train at London Victoria Station and settle into your plush armchair, admiring the authentic Art Deco touches of your carriage. As the journey begins, your steward serves you a sparkling Bellini, followed by a delicious brunch. Relax and absorb the scenery through your picture window as the train winds its way south-eastwards towards Hastings. Arriving in Hastings, enjoy free time to explore this fascinating town. You may wish to wander the shops in the quaint Old Town or take a stroll along the renovated pier. Alternatively, why not take a journey on the Cliff Railway up to either East or West Hill to enjoy panoramic views of Hastings. Also located on West Hill is the remains of Hastings Castle, which William I had built after his victory over King Harold II. You are welcomed back on board with a glass of chilled champagne. Linger over a delectable three-course dinner with half a bottle of wine as you travel back to London.
