What to see in Southern England

Carisbrooke Castle

Rural Southern England comprises green, rolling hills and scenic wooded valleys, with numerous walking and bridle paths passing through picturesque villages with quintessential English pubs. The New Forest, well known for its wild roaming ponies, is a distinctive, peaceful retreat. Across the water is the Isle of Wight, easily reached via a short ferry trip across the Solent. It has always been a popular destination for those seeking a traditional beach holiday in one of the bucket-and-spade resorts. The long stretches of sand at Shanklin and Sandown are family favourites and have plenty of other attractions.

Don’t miss historic Carisbrooke Castle and Osborne House, the favourite retreat of Queen Victoria. The River Thames weaves its way through the Thames basin and Chilterns area, passing charming riverside villages, castles, stately homes and beautiful countryside, including that around Oxford. This ‘city of dreaming spires’ has lovely scenic walks, old university buildings to explore, plus a huge selection of restaurants, pubs and shops. Along the river, you can go punting, hire a rowing boat, or take one of the many river-boat trips available.

The south coast is a popular holiday destination for those looking for a beach holiday. Seaside resorts include Swanage, and Bournemouth, with seven miles of golden sand. Also along this coastal stretch is Durdle Door, a natural arch that has been cut by the sea, and Europe’s largest natural harbour at Poole Bay. Nearby, the Isle of Purbeck is not actually an island but a promontory of low hills and heathland that juts out below Poole Harbour.
