If you are planning a trip to England, you will definitely want to make a list of places you want to visit. England is a very diverse country, but fortunately, it is not geographically significant which means that you can be located in one place for the duration of your visit and a trip to different regions of the country.
For most people, the southeast is the place to start visiting England, at least because this is where the country’s major airports and ports are located. Of course, the South East is also located where the world-famous capital, London, is undoubtedly # 1 among many visitor paths. However, southeast England, as well as the eastern regions, offer many other attractions, including medieval castles, beautiful gardens, and attractive cities. One of the particularly charming cities in the southeast is Canterbury, whose famous cathedral has attracted visitors for more than 500 years.
The southeast also includes some wonderful coastal regions and towns. Rye is one such example, where visitors can stroll along winding old cobbled streets and imagine themselves in a period drama film set a hundred or more ago. Rye also has some excellent restaurants and traditional English pubs where travelers can stop to relax and perhaps taste good English beer. Town locations and high-quality accommodations make it a good location for a southern base, from which visitors can travel up or down the south coast of England.
To West and North London, the cities of Oxford and Cambridge are worth a visit.
West and Central England
West of England, as it is known, is synonymous with the pace of backyard life in which outdoor activities such as surfing in Cornwall or walking in Dartmoor are a popular pastime.
Of course, one of the most popular attractions in West England is Stonehenge, an imposing ancient monument surrounded by mystery and intrigue that attracts visitors from all over the world who are wondering how and why. The beautiful city of Hammamet Bath is located less than an hour’s drive west of Stonehenge and provides visitors with an opportunity to explore the Roman Baths that have evolved around the city.
Another popular city, Stratford-upon-Avon, known as William Shakespeare’s birthplace attracts tourists from miles around, which is another addition worthy of any trip.
Northern England is where the most rugged landscapes in the country are located, along with medieval cities and villages like York. York is home to the best example of the Gothic cathedral anywhere in Europe and is a popular destination that offers a lot despite its small size. The Peak District, Yorkshire Dales, North York Moors, and Lake District in northern England are all found offering stunning landscapes in their English essence where visitors can enjoy the quieter surroundings, clean air, and good walks followed by the hearts of a meal at an old English inn.
