Autumn is fantastic time to visit South East England.  It is often less crowded than the summer, with more availability, and with two national parks and acres of natural beauty there are plenty of places to enjoy the changing of the seasons.  Home to a hundreds of all-year-round indoor and outdoor attractions also means you can find something to do whatever the weather. If you’ve still got a holiday to use, or are you planning an autumn staycation or short break away, take a look and discover why you should include South East England. 

Love South East England

The South East is so diverse and with great transport links it makes for an ideal destination for a day trip, short break or holiday.  Stretching from Kent in the east to Dorset in the west and up to Oxfordshire & Buckinghamshire in the north, South East England wraps around and includes London.

Love the Sea

With 400 miles of stunning coastline and its blue flag award winning beaches, there are plenty of coastal towns and cities making for a great Autumn escape by the sea.  Whether you choose to walk along the white cliffs, visit the many all weather, all year round attractions, skim stones along the shore, or enjoy the breath-taking panorama and evening sunsets, South East England is sure to delight.

South East England is blessed with over 1900 hours of sunshine a year, making it the sunniest destination in the UK.  The South East tourism businesses provide the sunniest welcome too, from home from home family friendly cottages, award-winning hotels and luxury spa resorts offering an escape from the everyday. Your sure to find the accommodation that is right for your budget and style.

Love the countryside

With its 3 million acres of natural beauty South East England is a walker’s paradise.  Choose to explore its two National Parks or nine areas of outstanding natural beauty.  Walk along one of its many National trails or paths, discover one of its many nature reserves, country parks or gardens.  Find windmills, ancient forests and follies, experience the changing leaves, misty mornings and beautiful outdoor spaces, on your very own South East outdoor adventure.

South East England is famous for its history and heritage, home to UNESCO World Heritage sites, Cathedrals, churches, Palaces, castles and more.  The South East is the weekend home of the British Royal Family at Windsor, the gateway to the world-famous Jurassic coastline, the infamous Battle of Hastings which changed the course of English history in 1066.   With 185 million years of history to discover, what to do first is the hardest decision.

Love Local Produce

South East England is the wine capital of the UK, producing award-winning English sparkling wines by the barrel full. With over 140 vineyards, and with new one’s popping up all of the time, a visit to the South East is not complete without taking time to visit to one.  Enjoy a tour, sample tasty English wine, enjoy lunch with stunning views over the vines or even stay for the night.  Now is a great time to get involved as many vineyards bring in the grapes between late August and October at harvest time. Get those taste buds tingling and discover why the chalk that whitens our cliffs, and the sun that brightens our day, makes the South East the top producers of English wines in the UK.

Whether you try Oysters from Whitstable or scallops from Rye, locally brewed beer in Oxfordshire or internationally renowned gin in Winchester, you will find a host of tasty foods and drinks made in the South East to experience. Along with great cookery schools, creative workshops, pick your own, farm shops, local produce markets, award-winning dining, afternoon tea experiences and more..... your sure to find something to tickly your taste buds or enrich your experience whilst here in South East England.
