Three cheers for the beautiful south of England.
Surfing beaches, clotted cream, the sunniest spot in the UK, and English sparkling wine… just a few of the things we love about the south of England.
So, in our infinite appreciation of our beautiful UK, we decided to create a list. It’s a MUST DO list of special places, beautiful locations, scrummy food and family events that we hope to travel to. Everything on the list can be found ‘down south’.
Curious Campers bucket list
We live on the border of Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire, and South Yorkshire; three beautiful counties, in the centre of the UK. We’re in the perfect spot to venture far and wide and we spend a lot of weekends and holidays travelling in our caravan. The plan is to enjoy as many special days out as we can, and tick these places off out list.
Our list is far from complete. It’s in no particular order. It’s growing all the time.
There is so much to do down south… watch this space.
We’re on it!
