England Travel Guide

by our United Kingdom expert Terry Emery
 
Terry EmeryEngland is ‘a small country’ which makes it one of the easiest to pack in an array of journeys across history and modern civilisation. London is a world focal point with the new-rich skyscrapers of ‘The City’ cheek-by-jowl with William the Conqueror’s Tower and Wren’s St Pauls. Classic attractions like the Zoo and Madame Tussauds, are now rivalled by the London Eye and the new South Bank. The capital is also a great jumping-off point. Take a 50 mile trip with the Prince Regent to Brighton – just 50 miles away and with a new bohemian atmosphere he’d have loved. Go to the brilliantly recreated Shakespeare’s Globe … and then retrace the footsteps of the greatest-ever writer to his birthplace of Stratford. March with the Romans to Chester for the remains of their British outpost or to York, where medieval and Roman legacies are pre-dated by the Viking museum, all in the shadow of the magnificent Minster. Relax in the gentle Cotswolds, enjoy an agricultural show, or try the more rigorous Yorkshire moors of the Brontes and Heathcliffe. And for a trip off the standard itinerary, seek out one of the canals that criss-cross the country; industrial or rural – it’s a unique viewpoint.
