Discover England

Sleepy villages nestled in rolling countryside, picturesque medieval market towns, and cosmopolitan cities; mile upon mile of dramatic coastline, towering mountain peaks in protected National Parks, leafy forests and ancient woodlands… Oh, to be in England!  And what better than a spot of afternoon tea in an English seaside town? Buckets and spades and sticks of rock are what English summers are all about!

Rich in heritage, the list of England’s historical treasures is almost never-ending; evoke the far-flung past amid mystical stone circles, ascend the stone towers of lordly castles or gaze in wonder at glittering treasure hoards.

The country boasts 15 national parks and 33 Areas of Natural Beauty for you to explore. Reconnect with the great outdoors in the most stunning natural surroundings imaginable.
