Southern England

Climb the dizzy heights of Beachy Head, or walk the chalk South Downs with their rich displays of wild flowers. Go inland to Dorchester, the setting for Thomas Hardy’s Casterbridge. Explore Stonehenge the iconic world heritage Neolithic stone circle and join the debate on why it was built. Don’t neglect the fine cathedral cities of Salisbury, Winchester – the ancient capital of England and Canterbury, site of the martyrdom of Thomas a Becket.

The roll call of grand country houses and castles cannot be bettered anywhere –don’t miss Hampton Court, Windsor Castle, Beaulieu, or follow in Anne Boleyn’s footsteps at Hever Castle, and soak up the scents in Vita Sackville West’s garden at Sissinghurst. North lies the Royal River Thames, cruise into Britain’s capital city and enjoy London's culture, heritage and entertainment.

"From the white cliffs of Dover head to Brighton and the Solent, then turn inland to the great stones of Stonehenge and royal palaces on the Thames. Finish in London, our great capital city and enjoy all the sights Southern England has to offer."
