holidays in england - southern areas & around the south coast

Whether it is a visit to Windsor Castle or Legoland! or going to Cowes week on the Isle of Wight, or further east with the beaches of Eastbourne, the excitement of London or the Isle of Sheppey in the north, we are sure that you will have fabulous holidays in England. Click on the following links to visit some of the more famous tourist attractions in the area:

Sussex in the south of England is perfect for watersports, fishing, sailing, bird-watching and walking with the rolling South Downs and plenty of National Trust homes and gardens also nearby. Shoreham Beach is popular for activities such as swimming, windsurfing and kitesurfing, and is also ideally located for walking on the Sussex Downs. There are amazing views along the coast and towns worthy of a visit whilst on holiday include Brighton in the East and Worthing to the West. Vibrant Brighton, with its excellent shopping including The Lanes, opulent Royal Pavilion, Sea Life Centre, marina, museums, theatres, galleries, bars and restaurants. Historic Arundel Castle, Glyndebourne, Newhaven with day trips to France, Chichester, Goodwood or Fontwell races, Worthing, Lewes and Gatwick are all within easy reach.
Kent on the south of England coast offers plenty of holiday ideas. The coastal town of Whitstable and the cathedral city of Canterbury are popular tourist destinations. The area of the north downs is classified as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, also known as the Garden of England and this speaks for itself. This is a perfect location for a family gathering to celebrate a special milestone or just to get together for a relaxing summer break.
Hampshire & the New Forest in the south of England provides easy access from the M3 and M25, so if you are after a short break from London this might be the ideal holiday county for you. The beautiful scenery and over a hundred acres of National Trust wood and heathland could be your ideal place to relax on holiday.
