Sussex: The Queen And Prince Philip Visit

The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh have been visiting four sites in East Sussex.

Her Majesty and Prince Philip started off their tour with a visit to West Quay Fisheries at Newhaven Fish Market meeting staff and taking a tour of the facilities talking to local fishermen and customers.  

The Royal party then headed to the YHA South Downs where they toured the newly refurbished facilities viewing the new 'Glamping pods.'

The Royal couple met staff and Duke of Edinburgh Award students staying at the centre before unveiling a plaque to mark the opening of the new facility.

The afternoon saw them travel to Harvey's Brewery, the oldest independent brewery in Sussex, to visit the factory and see the bottling plant in action before having lunch there.

The Keep in Moulscoomb is the last stop if the day - it's the new local archive centre opening to the public towards the end of 2013 housing over six miles of archives and resources dating back 900 years.

Hundreds of people turned out at each location for to see the Queen for Her Majesty's first visit to the county in six years.
