It may have been cold the last few months and you may still be waking up to frost on your motorhome window, but summer will soon be here, so it’s a good time to look ahead, get out the road maps and plan your next trip in your motorhome.
South East England
If you plan to spend your holiday in the south east of England, you won’t be disappointed. Famous for its magnificent parks and gardens there’s something for every horticulturalist out there.
The south east also played a huge role in our military history and you can experience this for yourself by taking a tour around Dover Castle and the Secret Wartime Tunnels where Churchill and Vice Admiral Ramsey masterminded the Dunkirk evacuation.

The central part of England can often feel like just a network of roads and motorways, however, there are some great places to stop with your motorhome and take in some culture.
There’s Stratford-upon-Avon, with it’s busy market town, and, of course, the home of William Shakespeare. There’s also the stunning scenery of the Cotswolds, not to mention the Black Country with its modern architecture right alongside the old Victorian villages.
