If you are arriving from Europe via the EuroTunnel, you’ll immediately find yourself on the Southern England Route. We recommend following the coastal roads West in the first place, travelling through some of the towns and cities which played an extraordinarily important role in Britain’s History. Reaching the most South-Westerly tip, known as Land’s End, you’ll begin heading North and East again, following the Bristol Channel towards the magnificent Georgian City of Bath.
Heading inland through the Cotswolds, and across to Windsor, you’ll pass through some of Southern England’s most beautiful inland areas, before skirting around the Southern periphery of London to the Kent Coast and return to the train terminal in Folkestone.
The roads of Southern England hug a spectacular coastline with dramatic white cliffs in the East and endless golden beaches in the West. With several major airports and ferry ports on the route, as well as the Eurotunnel rail crossing from France, it couldn’t be easier to enjoy a fantastic driving holiday in the country that poet William Blake called the Green and Pleasant Land.
Quaint villages, windswept seaside towns, historic cities and over a thousand miles of engaging roads make this an unforgettable road-trip with plenty to see and do along the way.
Go off-route and make your own adventure through one of the many specially designated Areas of Outstanding natural Beauty in this captivating region, or stick to the route and visit some of the recommended sights, venues and attractions along the way.
The enchanting New Forest, Land’s End, Royal Windsor and Kent – also known as the Garden of England – each add a unique layer to this journey which we recommend taking at least six days to fully enjoy.
