South East England
South East England is a neighbour to the ever-bustling centre of London and is one of the nine official regions of the country. These nine regions were established in 1994 in order to make the administration and statistical management of England easier and under better control. Although informal definitions can vary quite significantly, the South East officially comprises:

South East England has also been a major spot for royals over the past few centuries. As a result, the countryside is littered with magnificent castles, majestic homes, extensive battlefields and ancient cathedrals, which all work together to tell the complex tale of England’s history. Some of the most popular of the 30 castles in the South East region include Arundel Castle in Sussex, Leeds Castle in Kent, Guildford Castle in Surrey, Windsor Castle in Windsor, Herstmonceux Castle in East Sussex, Hever Castle in Kent and Dover Castle in Kent. Windsor Castle is still inhabited by royals to this day, which has attracted visitors from all over the world to the town of the same name.
Due to its close proximity to London, the South East of England is both convenient and accessible. This makes for the ideal retreat for locals as well as for tourists and visitors. Its cultural, historical and natural abundance further enhances the area to create a holistic destination and home.
