Day Trip to Brighton, organised by the Peloponnesian Association of Great Britain

The Peloponnesian Association of Great Britain has the pleasure of inviting you on a day trip organised for the 31st 2015 to Brighton.
Arundel Castle is one of the longest inhabited country houses in England. Many of the original features such as the crenelated Norman keep, gatehouse and barbican and the lower part of Bevis Tower survive. Between the 1870s and 1890s the house was almost completely rebuilt and the magnificent architecture in Gothic style is considered to be one of the great works of Victorian England. Enjoy the grandeur of the finely preserved interior with its fascinating furniture, tapestries and rare collection of paintings by renowned artists including Van Dyck, Gainsborough and Canaletto.

There are attractive water fountains, rills depicting the local river Arun and a small water grotto under Oberon’s Palace. This amazing garden features stunning green oak Pagodas and Oberon’s palace with its unique floating crown. David Williams (Daily Telegraph, 28 June 2013) wrote: ‘Your mood soars in the spectacular gardens. Most exhilarating of all? The crown dancing magically on a splashing jet of water in the Italianate, Collector Earl’s Garden…’
After a well-deserved, relaxing lunch at the sea front, end your day at the Royal Pavilion, an exotic palace in the centre of Brighton. Built as a seaside pleasure palace for George IV, this historic house mixes Regency grandeur with the visual style of India and China.
