A small and bizarrely overlooked area of the south coast of England offers a concentration of world class attractions to suite every taste. Great walking, lovely coastal views, rolling down land and some of the finest museums in the country make superb ingredients for a truly engaging holiday.

Straddling the border between Hampshire and West Sussex where the harbours reach inland to the foot of the South Downs, the area makes for an intriguing holiday base. From our hotel on the edge of the pleasant village of Emsworth we are perfectly located to explore the naval history at Portsmouth, spend two days immersing in the coastal delights of Chichester Harbour on foot and time on the higher ground of the South Downs.

All entrances are included on the holiday. The National Museum of the Royal Naval in Portsmouth has so much to see we include an entrance ticket valid for a year so you can come back again and again to enjoy. When exploring the South Downs, we include entrance to the Weald & Downland Museum, home of the BBC’s ‘The Repair Shop’ series. 

Each day of the holiday brings new delights be they cultural, historical or physical and often all three.
