Out and about in the south of England

This page of the iHi directory covers southeast and central southern England, from Kent in the east fo Hampshire, Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire in the west. It includes some very attractive rural areas, many of which have good rail links to London, for tourists and visitors who want to be within striking distance of the big city, or those who are looking for easily accessible rural breaks from the city.
  The area includes the South Downs national park and the New Forest national park, as well as some beautiful rural areas in Kent - known as "the garden of England" - the Chiltern hills to the west of London, and the eastern side of the Cotswolds. It is crosssed from west to east by the valley of the river Thames, and contains many historic towns and cities including Canterbury, Rye, Chichester, Southampton Winchester and Oxford, all of which are worth a visit in their own right.
  The area is well served in rambling and hiking trails, including the South Downs Way national trail, which runs from Eastbourne to Winchester, and the south-east coast path, which runs most of the way alont the coast from Kent to Southampton. It is also popular with cyclists, and there are plenty of cycling trails, including dedicated cycleways and waymarked cycle itineraries.
