Corey and Nicki’s Travel Diary

Saturday, 07 Nov 2009

Location: Wilmington, England

MapThursday we went on a day trip down to the Sussex coast.

We stopped first at Rye - a small town with cute cobbled streets the set off for Hastings.

We had hoped to see the castle ruins in Hastings but the leaflet had the wrong opening time printed and so that messed up our plans. In the end we had some lunch there then carried on to Battle Abbey.

Battle is where the Battle of Hastings took place in 1066.

Our final stop for the day was Bodiam Castle and then we headed home.

Yesterday we were back in London and visited the Horse Guards, Banqueting House, St James Park and saw Buckingham Palace before heading to the theatre for an enjoyable performance of the musical "Avenue Q".

Today is a bit quieter. Corey just walked into town and later will go to see a football (soccer) match with my parents, while I meet a friend for coffee in town. Then this evening we will go the the firework display in Dartford Park.
