1. Go aboard the Victory

Portsmouth Historic Dockyard is home to a number of celebrated ships including Lord Nelson’s flagship, HMS Victory, Queen Victoria’s battleship HMS Warrior and Henry Vlll’s Mary Rose.

2. Explore the New Forest by bike

In addition to the miles of country roads, there are over 100 miles of cycle routes through the ancient woodlands and across open heathlands, with stunning views of purple heather, golden flowering gorse as well as the famous New Forest ponies and their foals.

3. Get a close up view of the Needles

For a close up view of the dramatic Needles Rocks and Lighthouse, at the western end of the Isle of Wight, take the pleasure boat from the jetty for a dramatic trip around the rocks and lighthouse and panoramic views of Alum Bay sand cliffs.

4. Walk along the White Cliffs

A cliff-top walk from Dover to Deal takes in the South Foreland Lighthouse, the secluded cove and lovely seaside village St Margarets (starting point for cross-Channel swimmers) and at Kingsdown access via steps down the cliff.

5. Sail back in time at Chatham Dockyard

One of the world’s most complete dockyards from the Age of Sail and one of Britain’s leading maritime heritage destinations, Chatham Dockyard in Kent has a remarkable range of museum galleries, iconic buildings and historic warships to explore.

6. Ride the Watercress Line

Travel through ten miles of beautiful Hampshire countryside on one of the lovingly restored trains and enjoy the sounds, smells and magic of steam travel from a bygone age.

7. Taste the famous Whitstable oysters

Whitstable is famous for its oysters, which have been collected in this area of Kent since at least Roman times. There are plenty of places in the town to try them, accompanied perhaps by a glass of white wine or Guinness. Plus, a week-long oyster festival is celebrated every July.

8. Take a stroll on Brighton Pier

Brighton Pier is one of Britain’s most famous coastal landmarks. Take a stroll – for free – whatever the weather, go on the rides, play the slot machines or enjoy some traditional fish and chips.

9. Raise a glass at one of many vineyards

Sussex boasts more than ten vineyards, thanks to the chalky soil and relatively sunny climate. Many have produced award-winning wines that in blind-taste tests have been judged as good as, and even better than some of their French equivalents. Many welcome visitors and offer tours as well as tastings.

10. See Harold get shot in the eye

Visit Battle Abbey in Sussex for the annual re-enactment of the 1066 Battle of Hastings. It takes place on the very fields where one of the most famous conflicts in English history took place when William defeated King Harold.
