From the Bard's birthplace via Roman ruins to the rugged beauty of the Cornish coast
The rolling hills of Southern England are beautiful no matter the weather. They have inspired artists and architects for hundreds of years: peaceful, serene, and quintessentially British. Cotswold villages take you back to a simpler time; Stonehenge invokes fabled mystery; Shakespeare’s Stratford-upon-Avon celebrates creativity; Cornwall captivates with smugglers' coves, a piratical past, and the other-worldly, glorious Eden Project.
With such variety down south, from the accents to the food, it’s unlikely anyone has experienced it all. The famous pasty shop and Rick Stein’s fish restaurant – these delicacies will sustain and delight as you journey from shore to forest, from sand to earth, from country to town. The ancient Roman city of Bath and the small fishing villages of Devon – these landscapes interchange with only a short journey between them. Blink, and you’ll miss it.
So much in one area, there are activities for the whole family in stunning Southern England.
