The South and those who live there are seen as a bit soft by the rest of Britain. The weather is a few degrees warmer, the landscapes are softer, and the beaches in the summer are filled with holidaymakers. You can go hunting for fossils along the Jurassic Coast in Dorset, work out how they built Stonehenge, and wander around the Palladian architecture of Bath. There is much to see from the castles at Windsor, Leeds, Hever, and Bodium to hundreds of miles of coastline filled with superb beaches.
