Reasons to visit South East England
The South East of England benefits from fair weather, which makes it an excellent destination for outdoor activities. With so much history and culture too, you’re sure to find something for the whole family.
Glamping holidays in South East England are a perfect way to mix the fresh air and fun of the country with the bustle and culture of cities. London is a lively, fascinating destination with countless places to learn about England’s history, sample its cuisine and experience its modern-day diversity. Whether you’re touring the museums, taking in a West End show or scouring the markets of Camden and Shoreditch, the capital is guaranteed to engage and delight you.
The city of Canterbury in Kent also attracts thousands of visitors each year. Its stunning cathedral has been a pilgrimage destination for centuries, while the Canterbury Tales attraction introduces you to Chaucer’s renowned work and is a fun way to experience his stories.
With its vast areas of unspoilt countryside, the South East of England is a haven for those who love the great outdoors. Both the North Downs Way, which partly follows the pilgrimage route to Thomas Becket’s shrine at Canterbury, and the South Downs Way are idyllic trails for walkers and cyclists. Passing through picturesque woodland and over rolling fields, they are an excellent way to see the region’s rural beauty spots, and end at the iconic chalk cliffs of the coast.
Other great family activities in the South East of England’s countryside include geocaching, high ropes courses and quad biking. All you have to do is choose how adventurous you want to be!
Pick a campsite in South East England and you’re never far from the coast. From popular resorts like Brighton and Bognor Regis to quieter beaches such as Botany Bay and Goring Beach, there are plenty of places to grab an ice-cream, settle down on the shore and let the kids splash in the surf. The majority of beaches are shingle, with stretches of sand appearing at low tide. They’re perfect for strolls and skimming pebbles, but if it’s sandcastles you want, beaches such as Camber Sands or Folkestone are great options.
A number of water sports centres dot the South East’s coastline, where you can learn to paddle board, water ski, kitesurf and more. Lessons with qualified instructors are available for all ages and abilities, so the whole family can try something new together.
