Following on from last month’s driving holidays part 1, we’re we’re back with another exciting article: driving holidays part 2!

We’ll be taking a look at the South of England and exploring some of the best holiday destinations, so you can enjoy some great days out with the family over the summer holidays.

The beauty of driving around is that you can move on from place to place at your own leisure. We’ve written a 7 day holiday but if you absolutely love it in one place, there’s no stopping you from staying there longer, or similarly, if you aren’t that keen then cut it short and move on to the next place!

Days 1, 2 and 3: London

Start off in the country’s bustling capital city: London. Bursting with activity, London is an exciting place with plenty to do and see, keeping you busy for the duration of your stay.

With a whole variety of tourist attractions to see, some of the most popular include:

  • Buckingham Palace
  • Tower of London
  • Westminster Abbey
  • St Paul’s Cathedral
  • London Eye
  • British Museum, the Natural History Museum and the Tate Modern.
  • West End

So, have your map and camera at the ready, and you’re all set!city-731219_1280

Days 4 and 5: Kent  

The warm climate and rich coastline of Kent make it an excellent stop off for any welcome visitors.

A visit to Canterbury is well worth it, famous for Canterbury Cathedral, you can wander down the alleyways and go on a leisurely riverwalk (perfect if the weather is nice!), not to mention the delicious food and drink. Why not sample some of the finest seafood, fresh straight from the sea and visit Britain’s oldest brewery.

And for those of you historians out there, you can visit the historical city walls and even see Anne Boleyn’s childhood home.hever-castle-532952_1280

Days 6 and 7: Sussex

Moving on to Sussex, Beachy Head is the place to be, displaying breathtaking chalk cliffs making for some excellent cliff top walking.

Following the stunning coastline, Brighton is a place that offers something for everyone.  From traditional seaside attractions (fish and chips and slot machines!) to quaint narrow lanes with unique boutiques, not to mention the beautiful Royal Pavilion and the energetic nightlife on offer.

If you want something a bit quieter and more relaxed, Sussex has plenty of picturesque, rural spots to enjoy. Rye in East Sussex is a beautifully quaint town with preserved medieval timber frames buildings – we recommend a visit!Engeland_Rye_Landgate_achterzijde_12-10-2011_12-45-24


If a driving holiday is something that takes your fancy but you either don’t have a vehicle, or perhaps don’t have one big enough for all the family to fit in comfortably, then it might be worth considering hiring a car for the duration of the week, two weeks or however long your trip is.
