The South Coast of England is home to some beautiful towns, cities and villages which are well worth visiting if you are heading south for a little break with the family or your partner, or even alone.
Whether you want a relaxing break, sitting around in bars and restaurants, or an adventure packed holiday that will give you plenty of memories for the future, the South Coast is a great choice. But where should you go exactly? Here are five ideas for you to consider because you head south:
Devon has more than clotted cream and scones you know. This stunning English county is full of fabulous places to visit and to stay for a fabulous holiday in the UK. Devon has chocolate box scenery and little towns and villages that are just gorgeous. It also has an array of golden beaches, so you don’t have to travel abroad to be a beach baby this summer. Check out Devon and you will probably keep going back once you realise how great it is.
Cornwall is another fantastic part of Great Britain where tourists already flock in the summer and throughout the year. Here you can sit and sip tea and eat cake. You can head out to sea on a boat and explore the ocean and do some fishing. You can also go surfing if you are the energetic type, so there should be something for everyone to keep you entertained. Of course there is shopping too, plus great food and drink – seafood if well worth a taste down here of course.
Somerset is another spot in the UK that offers stunning scenery and natural attractions. You can also visit events here in the summer, such as Glastonbury Festival, the world famous music and arts festival. There are plenty of smaller events too and always something to do – or not if you just fancy relaxing with a drink and a good book.
Dorset gets some of the best weather in the UK so it is a great choice of destination if you are planning a staycation this year. There are loads of attractions too and accommodation from cottages to brilliant campsites.
