3 Days in Southeast England

Based on my 4 day London itinerary (find them here: Day 1, Day 2, Day 3, Day 4) you can see I have a sweet spot for England. So I will share a 3 day itinerary for a road trip through some of the most beautiful sceneries in Southeast England, which I did 10 years ago.


Day 1

From London, drive about 1 hour and 45 minutes to the amazing site of Stonehenge and take in the powerful energy from the place.

Once you have visited the site (some people say you can do it in 5 minutes, other stays for hours), head to the amazing Arundel Castle (about 1 hour and 40 minutes drive). You can either marvel at it from the outside (like I did) or go inside and explore.

From Arundel you will drive about 40 minutes to Brighton, one of my favorite beaches in the world!


Day 2

In Brighton you have the choice to spend the day at the beach (full of pebbles!) or visiting the Royal Pavilion or just strolling around town and talking to the locals – I don’t think I ever met so many lovely locals in a place like I did in Brighton!

Day 3

Today is the day you will see what is in my opinion a magical place: the Beachy Head lighthouse and the Seven Sisters Country Park.

To wrap up the road trip, drive to catch the sunset at the beautiful Reculver Abbey. It’s really beautiful and a great finale to this 3 day road trip!

Are you ready to explore Great Britain? I hope so!
