South East England
The South East is an economically prosperous region and almost every part of it is within commuting distance of London. As such, much of its economy and infrastructure is focused on serving the capital.
Because of the population’s transitory nature, there is a much weaker regional identity here than is apparent in other regions such as the West Midlands or Yorkshire, with people identifying more closely with their home town or county than being “from the South East”.
Travellers are likely to find people in the South East among the easiest to understand, as accents are much more heavily standardised than other parts of the country. Received Pronunciation, and its arguably more common working class equivalent Estuary English, have largely replaced the traditional accents and dialects of the region.
Overall its a fantastic place to visit and explore. What better way to do this than with one of our stunning South East England Escorts ( companions).
About South East England
Many local traditions and folklore continue to survive here in the South East England. Various cities and counties remain strongly attached to their local industries, for example Kent is associated with fruit production, while Southampton continues to act as a centre for container and cruise shipping.
The region’s affluence has caused a huge surge in the popularity of farmers’ markets and now many counties have an annual calendar of markets touring various towns throughout the year.
Folk traditions particular to an area include the ‘apple wassail’ (the midwinter blessing of apple trees for a good cider crop) in Lewes and ‘hop hoodening’ (a parade celebrating the hop harvest) in Canterbury.
There are also many myths and legends surrounding various locations in the region. The Rollright Stones in Oxfordshire, where a legendary king and his soldiers were apparently transformed by a witch into the stone circle that stands today, supposedly come alive at midnight.
In Berkshire, you can try to spot Herne the Hunter, an antlered huntsman who is believed to haunt the forests around Windsor. And the Devil’s Punch Bowl in Surrey has numerous origin tales attached to it, including that the Devil left a massive crater after jumping from neighbouring Sussex and that the bowl was created by two giants fighting.
Most of the region’s counties host a county show in the summer and there are numerous other cultural events throughout the year.

The quality of his cooking together with the front-of-house service will set Restaurant 27 apart as the finest in Portsmouth, Southsea and surrounding area.’
Friendly food, tasty people’ – the Murphys’ clever slogan neatly sums up their charming restaurant housed in a 17th-century fisherman’s cottage hard by the town’s harbour.
It’s a pleasingly decorated little place that makes an unassuming backdrop for highly polished, modern food. Imaginative combos have included starters of baked bream with fennel broth, lime & chilli oil, or duck egg, black pudding & serrano ham salad, but the strength of the kitchen is its reliance on local produce, as seen in mains of rabbit pie with roasted loin & grain mustard sauce, or sea bass – plucked from the Solent – with brown shrimp, caper & lemon risotto.
Fig & almond terrine with ginger ice cream may follow. The wine list is a judiciously chosen slate.
A family run small independent bistro. Serving home made food using fresh, local and seasonal produce. The modern European a la carte menu changes frequently, with a set menu available Tuesday to Friday evenings, and Thursday to Saturday lunch.
The restaurant also has a monthly themed event, offering a range of exciting flavours to explore all for a set price. Truffles has recently been refurbished offering a warm, cosy, informal environment to enjoy as a couple or a night out with friends.
