The landscape of the South East of England is one of the most beautiful and diverse in the country. One third of the region is designated as being an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, a tapestry of fields and woodlands, interspersed by quiet country lanes which offer some of the best possible walking opportunities available. The geography of the region also means it has one of the warmest and driest climates in the UK.
Walks along dramatic white cliffs with coastal views, through deep green ancient woodlands and across high chalk downland contrast with walking across classic English farmland on paths that link small villages, iron age hillforts, ancient parish churches and historic castles.
With much of the area characterised by the gently rolling hills of the North and South Downs, the walk to the top of the highest points can be challenging! Many less demanding shorter routes have been developed, including routes suitable for the less able visitor and those with prams and pushchairs.
Ramsgate Maritime Museum to reopen after four years
IT WAS lucky Friday the 13th for Ramsgate Maritime Museum – after four years of closure it is to reopen thanks to Thanet District Council and the Steam Museum Trust finally signing a new 25-year lease.
As well as enjoying the fabulous walking in the region, one of the delights of a visit is to experience the local gastronomy. Visitors buying from local food producers help conserve our countryside by keeping more money in the local economy, safeguarding local business and reducing the need for excessive food miles.
The region is easily accessed from the rest of the country, and boasts excellent national and international transport links. As well as the good road system, the South East is easily accessed by rail, with initiatives such as Surreys Rail to Ramble and Kents Rail to Trail initiatives taking visitors straight out into the countryside.
