Nevertheless, a raincoat should be quickly at hand – just remember to pack it when stowing it in the vehicle and not at the bottom. If you travel to the south of England, you may even experience Mediterranean climate conditions.

Attractions in the North of England

This area is characterized by a rich history and is very scenic.

The former industrial centers have left these hard times behind and enchant with top-class galleries, lively neighborhoods and cultural highlights. Manchester's pride, besides its music scene and of course its soccer team, is its famous nightlife and individual stores. Nature lovers appreciate the city as a great starting point for hikes through the Pennines, a rugged mountain range known as the "backbone" of England.

The north of England is also home to 5 of England's 10 national parks, such as the Peak District National Park, a spectacular natural experience with high moorland and dramatic rock formations, as well as impressive chalk cliffs and picturesque fishing villages. Other highlights of this region include Alnwick Castle, the second largest castle in England, and Chatsworth House, one of England's most popular stately homes. It encompasses 40 acres of parkland and gardens and is home to the Duke of Devonshire's private art collection, including works by Rubens, Rembrandt and Leonardo da Vinci.

The enchanting southwest

Highlights of the Southeast

This region of England, famous for its manicured gardens and charming seaside towns, is also known as the "Garden of England".
There are two national parks: the New Forest National Park and the South Downs National Park. Most of the South Downs National Park consists of the characteristic rolling chalk landscape of England's south coast. The contrast of the brilliant white rocks to the lush green of the meadows and the dense forests, some of them ancient, offers a unique sight. The region is easy to reach from London or Dover. The cool seaside resort of Brighton, for example, is located only ca. two to three hours drive by motorhome from London.

Another attraction in the area is Windsor Castle, since its 80th birthday. Queen Elizabeth II's permanent residence on her 50th birthday.
One of the most popular and famous gardens in the world is probably that of Sissinghurst Castle. In addition to the gardens, which have been designed as adventure spaces, Sissinghurst is home to the oldest herb garden in England, with over a hundred different herbs.
