Visit South West England

The South West of England is a region of contrast; from long sandy beaches to windswept moorland, buzzing cities to traditional fishing villages. Bristol and Bath, Bournemouth and Poole, Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly, Cotswolds and the Forest of Dean, Devon, Dorset, Somerset and Wiltshire- each part of the region has its own individual character.

What makes the South West a green destination?

14 Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (which together cover over a third of the region), 4 World Heritage Sites, 2 National Parks and a UNESCO Biosphere reserve give South West England a very special and inspiring environment, which makes it all the more important that tourism works in harmony with its surroundings.

Tourism businesses are proving their commitment to keep the South West special by joining the Green Tourism Business Scheme. With hundreds of accredited businesses, the South West of England now has higher coverage with the Green Tourism than anywhere else in England.
