If you're seeking mystery, relaxation or picturesque villages, you'll scarcely find better opportunities than in Southwest England, which offers world-famous attractions.
It's been two millennia since the Romans built the town of Bath on the country's only natural hot springs. The entire city is a UNESCO World Heritage site due to the springs and the Georgian architecture. You can relax in the steam of the city's thermal springs or enjoy a float down the Avon. The romantic feel of Bath makes it a wonderful place for couples.
Some of the country's top seaside resorts can be found at Cornwall and Devon as well as prime areas for examining prehistoric remains further inland. And for a touch of mystery, travel to the Salisbury Plain to visit Stonehenge, the pagan construction of stone monoliths dating earlier than 2500 B.C. This great arrangement is synonymous with the unexplained and still draws the curious from all around to view its tall structures.
Move forward in time a bit to check out some of the country's stately residences in Wiltshire. Every style and flourish is featured here, including the Elizabethan-style Longleat. For a return to modern luxury, visit Hampshire for the latest in shopping, leisure and nightlife or visit the New Forest, where equestrian, bovine and other less domestic species roam freely on more than 100 square miles of gentle hills and greenery.
Southwest England offers a powerful mix of adventure, enigma and beauty. It's little wonder that this region is one of the most popular in all of Europe.
