Our favourite destinations are in southern England, therefore I will just describe this area in more detail on these pages. 

Southern England is divided into twelve counties:-

County Main Town
Avon Bristol
Berkshire Reading
Cornwall Truro
Devon Exeter
Dorset Dorchester
Hampshire Winchester
Kent Maidstone
Somerset Taunton
Surrey Guildford
East Sussex Lewes
West Sussex Chichester
Wiltshire Salisbury
 

Southern England has several large towns some of them seaside towns, the latter having beautiful cliffs, wonderful coastlines, conservation areas, delightful gardens, splendid country estates and castles.

 

It is nearly every Englishman’s dream to own a country cottage with a rambling rose around the door and a true country garden!

Flowers mean a lot to the English, as we can see by this picture of the Public Pleasure Gardens in Bournemouth.

The following are southern English seaside towns that we discovered:

Plymouth "The Hoe" stands as a monument of triumpf and tragedy for the seafaring folk of England. In "Plymouth Dome" visitors can exerience a multivisual which despicts a journey through time.

 

Weymouth A relatively small seaside town with 50.000 inhabitants.

 

Swanage This town is worth visiting. When the tide is out, Studland Bay has a wide expanse of sand, and here it is possible to take a long walk along the beach.

Poole Next to Sydney, Poole has the second largest natural harbour in the world.
Bournemouth The beach at Bournemouth is covered with a fine white sand for over 10 km. As the cliffs, which separate the promenade from the town are quite high, in places the beach may be reached either by winding steps, known as Zig Zag steps or by 2 rack and pinion lifts. The town is proud of its many green parks and flower gardens.

 

Portsmouth This town is a gem for all seafaring visitors. Amongst other places of nautical interest there is the Royal Marines Museum, the historic ships - Lord Nelson's Victory, the Warrior and the remains of the Mary Rose, which was salvaged in recent years after remaining for many a century on the ocean bed.

 

Brighton Brighton was a favourite seaside town for the rich and noble in the 18th Century. The Royal Pavilion was built to capture the fantasy of these visitors which is impressive, even today.

 

Dover Approaching England by sea the white cliffs of Dover catch the eyes as they rise steeply in their chalky splendour. To the east Dover-Castle is perched high on the cliff and is next to be Tower of London the largest and best-kept gaol in Europe.

 

Now we come to another attraction in southern England, namely the " New Forest".

 

This conservation area is about 350 square km. Here there are magnificent walks through woodland and heather covered moor-land. It is still possible to observe wild ponies, cows, sheep, and in autumn, pigs. These animals are the true inhabitants of the New Forest and therefore have the right of way on the roads which criss cross the forest.

Those who would like to know more concerning the history and development of the New Forest and wish to spend a little more time there should pay a visit to the New Forest Museum in the well known town of Lyndhurst.
