The South East counties of Buckinghamshire, Kent, Surrey and Berkshire surround Greater London, making days out in England's capital popular among our guests. But miles and acres of delightful coastline and countryside, historic Oxford and Winchester, cosmopolitan Brighton, sandy beaches of Bournemouth, the naval centres of  Portsmouth and Southampton, mean that London is just one of many options and if you're flying into or out of Gatwick Airport there is plenty to see and do nearby.

Once you've decided on the ideal location, why not plan your visit with our extensive Travel Information pages offering plenty of choice and convenience for getting around South East England including road, rail, ferry and air.
