New issue: Issue 240 is here

    This issue, our travel special takes you to the beautiful south east of England

    As a Londoner, I often make the mistake of overlooking the fantastic places to visit on my doorstep, so this issue our South East England travel special has fired me up for more weekends away.

    First up, Annabelle Thorpe takes us on a tour of the ‘hursts’ some of the prettiest villages of Kent and Sussex, which could easily be visited together on one trip.

    Next, Jeremy Flint goes behind the scenes at Hever Castle – somewhere I thankfully have managed to make it to a few times – on , to find out what it’s like to work at such an iconic attraction. I will warn you, it may make you just a teeny bit jealous.

    We also list some of the beautiful places that must be on your list for your next visit to the south east, from white cliffs to country houses, and we have an intriguing piece regarding a secret visit by JFK to a sleepy Sussex village that I had never heard about.

    Plus, you could be in with a chance of winning a luxury stay in Sussex!
