A road trip through South England’s most beautiful villages
by Shannon Hammond
This scenic drive through the English counties of Hampshire and West Sussex will fill you with more charm than you might know what to do with (and quite possibly more antiques, too). Hampshire, also know as Jane Austen country, and its neighbor West Sussex are home to some of the most beautiful villages that England has to offer. We'll stop in a few towns, too, along the way, for a brief relief from all those thatched roofs and timber frames, and, if the timing works in your favor, you just might be able to step back in time for some vintage fun at Goodwood Racecourse.
Whether you are on a grand tour of the UK and looking to explore the South, or you just need a break from the hustle and bustle of London, this path is for you. Take it all in over the course of a few days, or group two or three together for individual day trips; however you approach it, the charm of the English countryside awaits.
