Days out in South East

See how the other half live (and shop like them), at Berkshire’s Windsor Castle or London’s Knightsbridge. Oxfordshire has a certain uni city worth checking out and the Duke of Marlborough’s Blenheim Palace is pretty eye-popping.

For a laid-back afternoon, chill out by the river at Kingston-upon-Thames. Or for something livelier, head to East Sussex for a day (and night) by Brighton beach. Tell Fatboy Slim we said hi.

You’ll also find hills, gardens and vineyards (honest) in Surrey - with vintage shops and nice views in Epsom, Guildford and Farnham.

Want something to keep the kids busy too? Try Legoland or the London Dungeon.

With so much cool stuff to do from London to the coast, you’re sorted.

For super easy parking in the South East try JustPark to find available spots (or even reserve the spot in advance!).
