Luscious landscapes, lively cities and quaint villages with country cottages and stately homes illustrate the vast cultural variety that characterises the different regions of England.
Areas in the South-East of England such as Kent are home to lovely blooming green gardens, as well as historical manners, palaces and castles; most notable is the famous Leeds Castle. In contrast, the South-West is lined with immense rugged coastlines, beautiful countryside and picturesque fishing villages, serving some of the freshest seafood in the UK. There is no better place to enjoy a Cream Tea than Cornwall, which produces deliciously rich clotted cream to pair with a scone.
Famous university cities Oxford and Cambridge are situated in the centre of England, and mix the traditional with the modern. Grand colleges, punting on the river and cream teas are mixed with a lively bar and club scene. Located nearby is the Cotswolds, an area renowned for its dreamy nature and idyllic villages that are perfect for a quiet weekend filled with leisurely strolls down narrow streets and afternoon tea in divine cafes.
The North of England has many vibrant cultural metropolises such as York, an ancient walled city with bustling shopping streets, and Liverpool, which in 2008 was named the City of Culture. From its days as the main docking station, to its major role in the Swinging Sixties, this city contains a great mix of history and culture, and continues to be an important destination for music fans.
Moving away from urban environments, the mountainous Lake District and Peak District are two of the most famous National Parks in England. They offer breath-taking views which can be admired either on foot or from one of England’s famous heritage railways that throwback to yesteryear. The varied green landscape holds many hidden gems making it the perfect location for nature lovers and avid walkers.
