Holiday in South England

Location and orientation

Holiday region in the south of the United Kingdom of Great Britain

South of Central England and the estuaries The Wash and Severn, the region stretches south of England. The borders of the region are not clearly defined. In general, the region includes the counties along the English Channel coast. They include South East England, South West England, East of England and Greater London. The most important cities are Dover, Brighton, Southampton and Plymouth.

Travelers and Activities

Adventure for big and small guests

Theme parks, museums suitable for children, bathing areas and playgrounds enrich every family holiday. Southern England offers an abundance of attractive excursion destinations. The Eden Project in St Austell is exciting. Together with the visitors, the educational exhibition researches how the future can be made more environmentally conscious. The Bourton-on-the-water model village, on the other hand, is a bit small. Children love the detailed museum in miniature format. The Marvel Wildlife Zoo or the Longleat Safari and Leisure Park are animal parks. The complex inspires with merry-go-rounds, mazes and tours through the monkey jungle. Pure adrenalin awaits you at the Crealy Adventure Park in Exeter. The colourful limestone caves Wookey Hole Caves or the excellent sandy beaches Bantham South Hams, Ness Cove and Blackpool Sands provide variety.

Diverse round trips

Southern England offers individual travellers a wealth of unforgettable cultural and scenic impressions. In order to experience as much as possible, road trips along the coast are worthwhile. Starting from the gigantic chalk cliffs of Dover, you can visit Whitstable, the country's largest oyster farming area. Further southwest, the lighthouses of Dungeness invite you to climb up. Parties at the Palace Pier await you in Brighton and the Portsmouth Naval Base provides insight into the British military. Hiking trails, nesting sites and wildlife can be found in the New Forest National Park before entering medieval alleys in Plymouth.

Numerous locations for the love films of Rosamunde Pilcher are located in southern England and triggered a tourism boom.

Top 5 travel tips

1st Prehistoric Monument

To the west of the municipality of Amesbury is the famous early historical Stonehenge building. About 3,100 years before Christ, the stone circle, which consists of a tomb and megaliths, was erected in the Neolithic Age and probably used as a place of worship until the Bronze Age. Together with the Neolithic sites Avebury and Associated Sites, Stonehenge is a UNSECO World Heritage Site.

2nd Masterpiece of Gothic Art

As early as 597, the Benedictine monk and missionary Augustine ordered the construction of today's Canterbury Cathedral. The gigantic place of pilgrimage is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the archbishop crowns the English kings in the church. Outstanding are the 75 metre high Bell Harry, the medieval stained glass windows and the tombs of past archbishops.

3. Unique natural landscape

Between the headland Orcombe Point and the chalk columns Old Harry Rocks runs the 150 kilometres wide Jurassic Coast, which is translated as Jura Coast. The stunning coastline shows abstract rock formations created during the Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous periods. In 2001, the Jurassic Coast was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. The Jura coast is famous for its spectacular fossil finds, which can be admired in the numerous museums along the way.

4. Count's splendid building

The magnificent Arundel Castle is situated on a hill in West Sussex and offers a fantastic view over the Arun River and the South Downs. As an original stone castle, the estate was built as a fortress in the 11th century and later expanded into a castle. Today the palace is a symbol of Victorian England and can be visited during a guided tour. Regular events take place in the gardens of the castle, which bring the exciting history to life. The programme includes Norman knight fights, literary performances in open-air theatre or medieval activities for families.

5. On the traces of industrialization

West Devon and Cornwall are epitomes of the impressive economic growth of the late 18th and early 19th centuries. Large areas of copper and tin mining were carried out in numerous mine pits in the region. Entire complexes were characterized by winding towers and machine halls, which were responsible for the development of the cities. The last European tin mine was closed here in 1998. Since 2006, the mining landscape with ten spatially separated mining areas has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The best known cliff mining area is on the outskirts of the town of St Just.
