Shopping at Gunwharf Quays, Portsmouth, Hampshire

Shopping at Gunwharf Quays, Portsmouth, Hampshire

Inspire Me!

We all need time out – whether it’s standing on a cliff-top, gazing at a beautiful garden or delving into the past lives of our literary and military heroes. This area of rich contrasts and exciting history, aptly named the Beautiful South, is sure to supply you with enough ideas to last a life time.

For a start, the constantly changing seasonal gardens of South East England offer a welcome escape from the hustle and bustle of daily life, as do our iconic natural landscapes such as the South Downs or the New Forest, location of some of the most popular days out in the UK.

The region is a cultural magnet too. Some of the English language’s most celebrated authors, comedians, musicians and actors have called South East England home as some point in their lives. The houses and towns connected with the likes of Charles DickensJane Austen and Kenneth Grahame collectively provide pages and pages of good day out ideas.

For other unique ideas for days out in South East England, explore the region’s connections with the Royal Family or its key role in Britain’s military history.
