One of the countries it seems that everyone wants to explore these days is England. England is a wonderful country, rich in history and beautiful scenery, with rolling green hills dotted with unique villages and towns just waiting to be explored. If you’re looking for a country that honestly has something for everyone, this is the place, with a whole host of amazing experiences to be had throughout the country, the only issue you will have is picking the ones you most want to try during your holiday in England. Here are a few you should consider.
London, the capital of the UK, is a huge, bustling city awash with a deep history and unique way about it. Like many cities, it has hundreds, if not thousands of restaurants, bars and entertainment venues but it also has dozens of historic spots of interest as well as museums. The British Museum is probably one of the most famous, home to many different artefacts from around the world that tell various stories of the development and growth of mankind and civilization as a whole. London is also home to such attractions like the Tower of London, formerly both a royal palace and a jail, as well as Buckingham Palace, the London Eye, London Dungeon and Westminster Abbey. Shopping in London is perfect for that person who loves a bit of retail therapy, with prominent shopping strips like Piccadilly Circus and Oxford street being two main places you’ll want to check out.
One of the most unique getaway ideas in England is to hire a canal boat, or longboat, and sail it up and down the canal systems that are so popular in the UK. One of the most beautiful areas to go canal boating is the Avon and Kennet Canal, which can be found in Somerset and Wiltshire and takes visitors down its extensive system through rolling hills and past beautiful, stone villages where you can moor up and explore. Don’t miss this area, it’s stunning to say the least, and with great weather in the summer, it makes for the perfect place to get away to.
If there’s one thing the UK has in spades, it’s beaches. From coast to coast to coast, there are plenty of beaches to be found throughout the country. England itself has an eastern coast, home to such delights as the somewhat gothic Whitby with the ruins of an old church on the hillside overlooking the bay. In the south, there’s the popular beach town of Brighton, known for its LGBTQ+ scene and crazy nightlife. The best spot to head to though if you want a family friendly beach getaway is the county of Cornwall. Home to not just beautiful stretches of sand, it’s also got great hiking with its rolling green hills and a rich, colourful history and culture. Come see for yourself.
So if you’ve been looking for a great getaway option, consider England. With so many things to see and do, this is just scratching the surface. Why not come and see what the fuss is for yourself? We promise you won’t regret it.
