Travel in England


You’d be forgiven for thinking you’ve seen England once you’ve seen London.

One of the iconic western cities, London can easily fill an entire week of non-stop tourism. Read over any 48-hour guide and you’ll find glaring omissions, even after you’ve spent 2 days romping through Trafalgar Square, Buckingham Palace, Big Ben and the British Museum. Almost always overlooked are the day-to-day pleasures of palaces, parks, pubs, pints and pies.

But stick within city limits and you’ll miss the famous English countryside. Add to your trip the natural beauty of the white cliffs of Dover, the Cotswolds, the Peak District, Lake District and the beachfront in Brighton. Then add Britain’s historic little towns, from home of the world-famous Oxford University or Cambridge University to the home of The Beatles in Liverpool and Manchester.
