The South East is the most populated region in the UK, and for good reason. Easy access to London is the major draw, but it’s also famous for its countryside, with Kent known as ‘the Garden of England’.
Meanwhile, you have great connections with France via ferry, Eurotunnel and Eurostar, and some of the best seaside towns and cities in the UK, such as Brighton. It’s comparatively expensive, but pay is typically higher in the region.
