South East
The sunny South East promises a fantastic holiday in the countryside; even more so when you stay in one of our fantastic YHA hostels across the region. Whether you're seeking a rural holiday or a city break by the sea, you're bound to find the right accommodation for you and your family. For a seaside holiday this year, there's nowhere better to head to than the beautiful south coast of England, promising fantastic beaches and a wealth of culture and heritage to discover. Explore the New Forest and the rolling South Downs, or head to the bustling city of Brighton for the chance to dine out on the promenade and hit the tiles in the evening. You could even head up to Margate, one of the UK's top family destinations, where you'll find seaside attractions and even a jazz festival each summer.
