Our first stop for breakfast will be on our way to Brighton. We will have lunch there and we will start our tour by visiting the Royal Pavilion.

Thereís nothing quite like a bracing walk along Brightonís Seafront and the West Pier to clear heads and revive appetites !

 

Time goes by and our host families near Portsmouth are to welcome us. Enjoy your first evening in England and do not hesitate to chat with the different members of the family to learn more about their way of life or how they see the French !

DAY 3.

After a refreshing sleep, we will visit Portsmouth. Right now, we are going to have a closer look at HMS Victory.

You will be then allowed some time to go shopping in the centre of the city.

In the afternoon, we will visit the Maritime Museum located in Southampton where the Titanic and the Mayflower can be seen. May I suggest you to have a virtual tour of the city ?

Everyone will be looking forward to going to bed then.

DAY 4.

There, we will have a picnic. Let's hope the sun will shine!
