Persimmon Homes

South East

Discover what living in one of our new homes in the South East of England is like. Use our guide to the key cities, famous landmarks, special landscapes and things to do as your starting point.

The South East lines the English Channel with its iconic white cliffs and then stretches all the way inland to the Thames and across to the famous spires of Oxford. It’s the third largest of England’s regions and so our new builds take on board a wide range of locations, giving you plenty of choices for your new home.

International connections put this part of England ahead of the game for travel, whether it’s for work or play. With the commercial ports of Southampton and Portsmouth, the passenger ferries of Dover and Folkestone, the Eurostar, Gatwick airport and a motorway network that includes the M25 to the south of Greater London, it’s no wonder that this is a great area to set up home.

The South East’s counties

This region stretches all the way from Oxfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Berkshire and Surrey, to Hampshire, East and West Sussex, the Isle of Wight and Kent.

Cities in the South East

From university cities to port cities to cathedral cities, the South East celebrates its diversity in Brighton, Oxford, Portsmouth, Southampton, Winchester, Chichester and Canterbury.

Landmarks in the South East

As well as the coastline, the beautiful rolling landscapes of the South East include the North and South Downs, the Chilterns, the New Forest, the Cotswolds and the Surrey Hills.
