A journey through England is a journey through history. But not history that’s dull and dusty – history you can feel and re-live. You can lay your hands on the ancient megaliths of a 5000-year-old stone circle, or walk the battlements of a medieval fortress – just as they were patrolled by chain-mail-clad defenders many centuries ago. Visit the sites of the legend of King Arthur, the sonnets of Shakespeare and the palaces of monarchs – past and present. Then fast forward to the future and you’re admiring 21st-century architecture in Manchester, or exploring the space-age domes of Cornwall’s Eden Project. Travel here is a breeze.
Granted, it may not be totally effortless, but it’s easy compared with many parts of the world. The public transport is very good, and a train ride through the English landscape can be a highlight in itself. But whichever way you get around, in this compact country you’re never far from the next town, the next pub, the next restaurant, the next national park or the next impressive castle on your hit list of highlights. The choice is endless. Discover the eye-opening diversity that makes modern Britain – from global cuisine to urban culture. And at the heart of it all, find London. This cutting-edge city is as into its new trends as its old traditions. You could spend weeks seeking out its hidden treasures, but to experience England in all its glory, you’ll want to venture further afield.
