There are plenty of places to get around London and discover new places when you already have a city going through a cross or just want to take a break from the hustle and bustle. Within a driving distance of about 2 hours by train or bus you can reach both the sea to the south or east, but also to Cambridge University City in the north. Here are some tips for day trips around London.

Mayfield Lavender Farm

In south London, not far from Croydon, you'll find a lavender farm cut out of French Provence. Admission is 2.5 pounds and you can enjoy walks among the purple lines, the intoxicating scent, the buzz of bees and endless opportunities to photograph this scenery. During the summer season and on the nice weekend weather, there are really a lot of people, so I recommend a weekday.

Southend-on-Sea

On the east coast of London you will find the town of Southend-on-Sea, which lies almost at the end of the train line. The British character of seaside towns and thus the promenade along the beaches, the pier of the fairground attraction, must not be missing here either. This is a really big amusement park of all kinds of attractions. But there are also quieter places, just take a train to the town of Shoeburyness and you won't be bothered by an animal. You will also find places to swim or walk along the sea and, as a matter of interest, several war bunkers, which were supposed to protect London from possible air raids.

Bournemouth

A little further afield on a trip from London, but still accessible within 2 hours by car, is the seaside large city of Bournemouth. It is located on the outskirts of Dorset on the coast. The city also has its own large beach, which, however, during the weekend summer sunny days it becomes an anthill. The city center can be easily bypassed, you will find a traditional pedestrian zone with shops, churches and quiet oases of greenery in the parks.

Beaulieu

A small town with a French-sounding name hidden in the middle of the New Forest National Park is a magical place where time stood still. Winding streets, houses with thatched roofs and a pond with swans in the middle is like a fairy tale. An unconventional aspect is brought here by free-moving horses grazing on the lawn in front of the abbey. Not only tourists with their own transport, but also whole buses come to the town. They go to visit the museum of motor machines, the abbey, the castle, or a small circuit with a train.
