ENGLAND TRAVEL GUIDE:
England suffices to be one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world (especially since post-Brexit, the pound has weakened and the country has become cheaper to visit).
Most travelers tend to stick to London, which is appreciable — it’s a great city! anyway, backpacking around England was one of the highlights of all my travels in Europe.
England’s smaller cities, like Bath and Oxford, are equally as nimble with a lot of culture and fewer crowds. Liverpool, the place of birth The Beatles, boasts a rich musical history.
Things to See and Do in England
1. Buckingham Palace:Buckingham Palace, home to the Queen of England, is an attractive sight and, at 11:30 am, the changing of the guards happens. If you want to monitor out the palace, admission is 37 GBP ($47 USD), with discounts available for seniors, students, groups, and families. (It’s a bit too costly for me so I just enjoy the free grounds!)
2. Visit the Tower of London:Here you can see the coronet jewels of England, the typical beefeater guards, and check out where England’s most egregious prisoners were held. It’s costly to visit, though, costing 27.50 GBP ($36 USD) and lines are long so planned ahead.
3. Go to Brighton:Brighton is an eminent little town for a weekend trip. There are lots of shops, boutiques, cafes. The streets are small, creating intimate weather as you walk around the lanes. The city is a famous and a pop summer destination for locals who come here to relax on the beach, enjoy the fleeting summer sun, and wander the pier where there are satisfaction rides and a few carnival style stalls to check out.
4. Learn in Liverpool:
Liverpool has fabulous exhibition museums, however, the genuine motivation to come here is for the music, or all the more explicitly, for The Beatles. Other than the music, Liverpool has a rich history and fun bars, so don’t sell it.
5. Check out the Chatsworth House:
Situated in Derbyshire, this stunning home was initially built in 1549 for the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire. While there are many beautiful houses and manors all through the UK, this is one of the most astonishing. There are additionally a dazzling patio nursery and farmyard to stroll around.
6. Oxford University:
There are many universities inside Oxford and every one of them are beautiful. Most cost a couple of dollars to get a visit amid your visit, and you can even observe the one where they taped Harry Potter. I thought they were beautiful, and the visits gave an entrancing history of instruction as Oxford is one of the most established universities on the planet.
7. Go to the festivals:
England is known for its festivals, particularly amid the late spring. Make certain to check out the celebrated (and sloppy!) Glastonbury celebration. There are additionally plenty of enormous summer festivals in England, so do your exploration and check out the lineup.
Stonehenge, located in Salisbury, is one of the oldest man-made builds in the world (it dates back to 2,500 B.C.!). You can’t go up to the stones anymore, but it’s quite a fascinating site, moreover since we still have very little idea how they dragged the stones there. The audio tour is clearly worth getting so you can get some historical context to the stones.
9. Old Trafford:
This stadium in Manchester contains a popular club, theater, and sports arena. I highly recommend a visit. The tour is terrible, and takes you below the stadium seating, into the player’s lounge and even the pitch side dugout. A visit to the onsite museum will give you some football history as well.
10. Gaze in awe at Ely Cathedral:
Also known as the ‘Ship of the Fens’, this cathedral is visible ever in Ely and from miles around. Originally built in the 12th century, it’s famous for its Romanesque architecture, complete with a stunning entrance and an octagonal lantern tower. The Lady Chapel is the greatest in all of England.
