Although the beating heart of the capital lays just above, Southern England is an altogether more relaxed affair. With everything from open heathland and rolling chalk farms to open woodland and beautiful coastline, this part of the country is the perfect place to experience its beautiful landscapes, while never being that far from the hustle and bustle of London.

Berkshire is home to Windsor Castle, an official residence of Her Majesty the Queen. The incredible architecture doesn’t end there, however, with plenty of other castles and grand country houses to explore. The White Cliffs of Dover are one of the UK’s most iconic sights, their magnificent white façade looking out across the Strait of Dover towards France. Head further inland and you’ll discover a burgeoning wine industry and some world-class sparkling whites.
