About South East of England

The South East of England provides a gentle landscape of chalk downland ridges that stretch far  to the west. Here you can drive through quaint villages of thatched cottages that nestle around lush village greens. Towering white cliffs form a spectacular backdrop along wide stretches of the southern coastline, the most stunning of which can be seen in Dover. Large areas of oak, ash and beech woods shelter herds of timid roe deer and wild ponies. The New Forest, one of England's newest national parks, is a wildlife conservation area of outstanding natural beauty, ideal for walkers and cyclists.

Counties of the South East: Bedfordshire, Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Hampshire, Isle of Wight, Hertfordshire, Kent, Oxfordshire, Surrey, Sussex

Principal towns:  Reading, Portsmouth, Southampton, Winchester, Oxford, Guildford, Brighton, Chichester
