Shearings reports that Eastbourne is one of its most sought-after destinations, due to its award-winning sandy beaches, Victorian pier and its proximity to the South Downs.

The operator’s best selling ‘Gardens of Sussex’ break gives customers the chance to explore the gardens at Great Dixter, visit Sheffield Park and see Michelham Priory.

Based at the Burlington Hotel, a Grade 2 listed building, customers can take a seven-night half-board stay from £439 per person including coach travel.

The operator’s five-day ‘Scenic South Coast and Downs’ break, based in the same hotel, is also a best seller. It includes excursions to the South Downs and Nymans Gardens, as well as four nights’ half-board accommodation and coach travel.

Prices lead in at £289, with departures available this month and throughout next year.

Meanwhile, the company’s best selling Great Highlands Railway break gives customers the chance to enjoy journeys on the North Highland Line, Kyle Line and Strathspey Steam Railway.

Based at the Bay Highland Hotel in Strathpeffer, the holiday gives guests the opportunity to explore the unspoilt village, which was a spa-town in Victorian times. The holiday includes seven nights’ half-board accommodation, three full day excursions and coach travel, with departures available throughout next year.
