Our Great British Bucket List - South East
Posted on August 26, 2016 by Sabina
Much of the South East is in very close proximity to the capital of the UK, however, the area basks in gorgeous countryside and enjoys stunning beaches. The closest point to the continent, the area revels in a rich history (although, hasn’t enjoyed the invasions too much!) Check out these fascinating counties for a fusion of rural and urban societies and cultures.
The whole of Brighton was built up around the Victorian age, and the world-famous pier still retains a somewhat Victorian air. There’s a nationally famous fish and chip restaurant and various bars, arcade games and funfair rides to enjoy; this is proper British seaside fun!
One of the oldest Christian structures of England, the cathedral at Canterbury has always had national significance. This and lots of other historical information at the cathedral means that here, you can learn about centuries of fascinating British history which has moulded the country into how it is today.
White Cliffs of Dover
The iconic white cliffs are located at the UK’s closest point to France; and have been an symbol of liberty and prosperity for centuries. The unique cliffs can be enjoyed with a coastal walk – where you can see all the way to France on a clear day!
