Since my last post I have had a bit of a rethink and would appreciate your comments on the feasibility of this new plan. We arrive in Heathrow and take the train to Lewes on the Sunday and spend the afternoon/evening looking around Lewes. Day 2, we catch the train to Brighton to have a look around. We then have 3 days to have a a look around and will hire a car in Lewes to get
around. Day 3 From Lewes we will travel to Arundel, Midhurst and Petworth and if it is possible to Hever Castle in the same day and then back to Lewes. Days 4 & 5 Some of the places we would like to see are Battle, Rye, maybe Bodiam Castle and Sissinghurst Gardens. ( Have I missed anything?). I'm not sure if we are trying to fit too much in. As we are in our late 60s we would prefer not to rush around too much and I realise that travelling by road takes much longer than it does for same distance here in Australia. On the Friday we will take the train from Lewes to Gatwick in time to catch our flight to Barcelona which leaves around 1.00pm. If we left Lewes
around 8am would this get us there in with time to spare? Any recommendations for a reasonably priced B&B and car rental company in Lewes would be appreciated.
