Anyone who lives in or has visited England knows what a beautiful country this is; a treasure trove of sights to see, brimming with history and architectural wonders, beautiful countryside and beaches, castles and more. You can’t miss this country in your travels and if you live here – why leave?
Here are some of the amazing destinations worth visiting:
For a bit of culture, beauty and history, Bath, regarded as one of the most beautiful cities in the world, can’t be missed. There is the Royal Crescent and Georgian architecture everywhere you go, as well as the historic Roman baths that have some of the most mineral rich healing waters in the world. Why not visit the Thermae Spa for the best bath of your life!
The Isles of Scilly
For a laid back experience on perfectly white beaches, or exploring the walls of ancient castles, the wonderful islands of Isles of Scilly will sneak up on you and surprise you with all of their charm. No two isles are the same so exploring them could be an adventure like no other. Each one offers its own special experience, with specialty restaurants and unique activities. Some are laidback, others offer grandeur, but getting there is half the fun.
Even the name is unique, but everyone should see, at least once, where William Shakespeare was born. The home he lived in is still standing and available to view but since it’s such a popular attraction, it can get quite crowded. However, the rural countryside of Warwickshire can be a great escape, and a beautiful one at that.
This town is heralded as a fascinating place to visit not only because it consists of six separate towns all rolled up into one but for many other wonderful reasons. If you love museums, pottery cafés, towers and unique forests you will love it here. Monkey Forest is worth seeing. Hidden away amongst the 800-acre Trentham Estate is the only place in Britain where you can walk amongst over 140 Barbary macaque monkeys freely roaming around on 60 acres.
Canterbury is known as a place with a little city, coast and country all blended in together. Whether you’re a history buff, are a religious scholar or have a love of the arts and culture, you can find it all here. Canterbury has the shrine of St. Thomas Becket, St. Augustine’s Abbey and Herne Bay for seaside fun,. Not to mention the operas and some outstanding plays at the New Marlowe Theatre. Or just walk along the cobbled streets, such as Kings Mile, for shopping and some fantastic food. Remember Canterbury Tales? Don’t miss this trip back to medieval England!
