Animal lovers will delight at its farms, wildlife parks, and dolphin and puffin spotting opportunities. Whilst those in search of culture and history will be spoilt for choice too.


3. Kent

In the southeast of England, you’ll find the stunning county of Kent. The area is well known for its magnificent coastlines, spectacular castles, and thriving food and drink scene. Affectionately nicknamed the ‘Garden of England’, Kent is the perfect place to explore the great outdoors in all its glory.


4. Durham

Another location known for its captivating coastlines and culture is Durham. It offers the road less travelled for keen adventurers and nature lovers, with the Durham Dales supplying miles of amazing sights, not to mention one of England’s most remarkable waterfalls, High Force.

Durham’s harbour towns are also must-visits, and provide unexpected havens for foodies thanks to their delicious local produce and many award-winning eateries.
