Heritage, History & Tradition
Known for its picture perfect scenery, remarkable history and tradition, England’s green and pleasant land offers an amazingly diverse range of travel experiences.
Being the largest country in the United Kingdom, the landscapes and climate are hugely varied from the prettily rolling farmlands and quaint villages of the Cotswolds to the rugged mountains and pristine shores of the Lake District. Travelling here will take you on a journey through places which inspired countless authors and poets like J.R.R. Tolkien, William Shakespeare, Jane Austen, the Brontë sisters, Lewis Carroll, William Wordsworth and Beatrix Potter.
Northern England is hilly, characterised by high moorlands, limestone and glacial valleys. The area is home to 4 national parks, containing some of England’s most impressive natural areas. Take in the imposing limestone cliffs that the Yorkshire Dales are famed for, or fall in love with the unspoilt beauty of Northumberland. The North York Moors is a place full of heather and dark skies whereas the Lake District is known for its dramatic fells and expansive lakes.
Further south, the Cotswolds encapsulate quintessential English countryside. From stately manors and orderly gardens to the gentle rolling green hills and the unspoilt villages that feel like a step back in time, the Cotswolds are drawn together as a single region by the lovely Cotswolds Way.
England has a rich cultural heritage and fascinating history. Castles and great manor houses dot the countryside and there are countless fascinating ruins of various ages to explore. Visit relics from the industrial revolution, imagine the sieges that once took place against Medieval castle walls, admire the stunningly complex architecture of the many great abbeys and monasteries, or trace the footsteps of Roman soldiers while exploring the cultural wonders of England.
