Sussex & The Prairie Garden: Wednesday 30th June.

Sussex & The Prairie Garden: Wednesday 30th June. Visit the Upper Adur Valley in West Sussex – dotted with pretty villages and beautiful views. In the afternoon we visit one of England’s most glorious gardens and round off a memorable day out with tea and home made cake. We meet our guide near Horsham, at 10.30am to buy morning coffee. The River Adur flows from Henfield to the sea at Shoreham. The river was once busy with sea-going ships mooring at the inland ports of Bramber and Steyning. Our entertaining and scenic coach tour including Jonathan Creek’s windmill ends with free time for lunch in lovely Steyning. In the afternoon we’re off to the unique Sussex Prairie Garden – a joyful kingdom cradled by the rolling South Downs. Huge, dazzling beds are choc full with romantic clouds of boldly coloured perennials and tall plants form great swathes of colour. This joyful kingdom sits in an eight acre grassy field cradled by the rolling South Downs. Look up from inside this natural bowl and, above a ring of mature oaks, you can see an Iron Age Fort known as the Chanctonbury Ring. After an introduction with the owner you can wander through this wonderland. There’s local art on show in the cosy barn and a nursery full of tempting things. Tea and delicious home-made cake is included and you’ll be ready to head home at 4.45pm. Price £53.00 per person Coach departs Stevenage at 08.00
