Excursions are important because they give you the opportunity to experience aspects of British culture and the chance to hear English spoken authentically.

I will go with you at least twice a week on local excursions and outings at no extra cost, except for entrance fees. These would include local attractions in Hastings, and surrounding places such as Battle, Rye and Bodiam Castle.

At weekends you can visit locations further away, such as Brighton, Canterbury, and castles at Arundel, Lewes, Scotney and Hever, and Bateman’s, which was the home of Rudyard Kipling. You will be accompanied at all times, either by myself or by other members of my social activities team.

More information about local attractions in Sussex and Kent can be found on the following websites:
