England Travel Guide
King's College, Cambridge ©
The lifeblood of the British Empire, Great Britain, the United Kingdom (or whatever you choose to call it), has always been England. A tiny country in comparison to the United States or even France, it's nevertheless had a huge impact on the history of the world.
All the regions of England are easily accessible from the invigorating capital city of London, famous for its history, culture and pageantry. In England's North Country, lakes, mountains, castles and craggy coastlines create a scenic splendour; while further south, the medieval city of York contrasts with lively Liverpool and Manchester, both famous for their football teams, live music scenes and exhausting nightlife.
Visitors travelling south of London will discover a quieter England, where a tranquil air blows through country lanes or across shimmering fens, while the gleaming spires of Oxford stand proudly above a university town that's changed little over the centuries. South of London, the 'Garden of England' stretches out with bountiful farmlands to the coast, where visitors will find charming seaside resorts and fishing villages. From the Cotswolds to the craggy coast of Cornwall, the West Country offers an idyllic pastoral experience, with charming thatched cottages and winding roads through lush, green fields.
With its pomp and pageantry, wonderful idiosyncrasies and vibrant diversity, today's England is friendly, welcoming, fascinating and fun.
