Brilliant Britain – What To Do In South East England

2012 is the year of Britain.  Number one on the agenda- the 2012 Olympics are in London! We wanted to encourage everyone in Britain to make this the year of adventure and fun. Give your sofa a rest and lay off the TV for the new year.
At GO Activities we don’t want you to sign up to the gym, to lose any weight or even to stop those bad habits. We just want you to get out and about near your home town and enjoy England. With so much to do, from bushcraft days, to quad biking, archery as well as walks and days out for the family, to celebrate Brilliant Britain- here’s some of the best things in all the regions, starting with the South East Of England’s Highlights.

Why Visit the South East of England?

Quaint villages, winding rivers and an unspoilt coastline, East Anglia is perfect for visitors who want to be close to London- but not too close!

From walking (try the Broads National park, all 300 square kilometers of it!) , boating (cruise, boat or kayak along  the River Yare) fishing, riding (try a horse ride in Hook) or just relaxing- South East England is ideal.

For a real British day out in any weather, head to the seaside towns of Wells-Next-The-Sea, Cromer or Lowestoft- known as the Sunrise Coast. You can even try Kitesurfing in Hunstanton or take an aerobatic flight by Shoreham on Sea – followed by salty chips under the threat of peckish seagulls and time in the arcades afterwards.
See the university town of Cambridge, punt on the river or take a trip to Norwich Castle, Oxford’s streets or the largest area, Brighton and Hove.

Take a 1 Day Bushcraft Course in South Walsham or go Otter Spotting on a Canoe Trail in Barton. A swallows and Amazons adventure day is also a great way to spend some time!

For adrenaline and fun for all ages, try dumper truck racing in Rochester, Airsoft in  Reading , or a super car experience in Chichester.

You can even do archery and quad biking back to back at an activity centre like Winchester, Redhill, Horsham, or Findon.

Explore the White Cliffs of Dover or historic settlements of Canterbury, Oxford and Windsor, which can also be traversed on bike.
Go sea cliff climbing at Harrisons and Bowles Rocks, where experienced instructors will show you the rope, or walk the treetop walkway at Salcey Forest, close to Northampton!
