| The South East covers
nine counties stretching in an arc around London, from Thanet
in the south-east to the New Forest in the south-west and
to Aylesbury Vale and Milton Keynes in the north-west. It
is a region that is steeped in history, but whose towns and
cities buzz with life. Beautiful coastline and breathtaking
landscapes form the backdrop to peaceful villages and magnificent
stately homes and castles.
What makes the SE a green destination?
The South East has some of the most attractive scenery in Europe, with
over 30% of the region being protected landscape – designated as
National Park or Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). 40% of the
region’s area is under some form of protective designation, such
as National Park, AONB, Green Belt or Site of Special Scientific Interest
The region offers unique countryside, coastline and attractive
historic cities and towns. It is also working closely with
the GTBS to bring a large number and wide variety of tourism
businesses under the ‘green accreditation’ banner.
The south east has a mild and temperate climate, giving
rise to distinct landscapes as well as flora and fauna.
