This fascinating and fun tour begins in The Gun Room in Alfriston. The Gun Room is said to have been the gun store for the Duke of Wellington, and is primly situated on The Tye in the historic and picturesque village of Alfriston. Beautifully restored, it is now the retail outlet for Rathfinny Wine Estate, as well as being the Heritage Centre for Alfriston and the Cuckmere Valley. Specialising in locally sourced wine related products, it will ultimately be ‘The Cellar Door’ for the Estate. Here, you’ll enjoy some fine Italian coffee as your guide talks about the long and fascinating history of this delightful and quintessential English village. You’ll then take a stroll up through the High Street, hearing the humorous stories of pirates and smuggling in 18th century England. The tour then finishes at Rathfinny Wine Estate, or another local vineyard, where you’ll be treated to a Sparkling wine tasting. Lunch can also be arranged.
Couples £115 per person. For groups of 7 or more £97 per person.
