A trip to England is an eye-opener for any tourist, no matter where they are from. Many visitors are keen to see the main attractions of cities such as London or Liverpool, but may not be aware that there is plenty to see and do beyond these large cities.
While visitors love a trip to the Globe in London, it is always worth visiting Stratford-upon-Avon in Warwickshire. This is Shakespeare’s home town and it is now home to the Royal Shakespeare Company – the theatre company dedicated not only to the work of the Bard, but the production of quality theatre.
England has many national parks and one of which is the Lake District in Cumbria. A trip to this part of the north of England will show you one of the most beautiful regions of the country. Lakes such as Windermere and Ullswater are ideal for tourists that like to walk. Just across the border in Yorkshire there are the Yorkshire Moors and the Yorkshire Dales – both great for walkers and those who love the peace and quiet of the countryside.
The heritage of England is clear in its historic houses and stately homes (if you use Groupon you may get special offers). Tourists enjoy seeing how the other half live – or used to live! Houses such as Blenheim Palace, Chatsworth House and Highclere Castle are familiar to many as they have been used and featured in numerous TV shows and films, but associations such as the National Trust run dozens of such properties, giving you the opportunity to visit the former homes of people such as Rudyard Kipling, Jane Austen and John Lennon.
England is known for its seaside towns where you can enjoy the traditional features of a seaside holiday – great beaches, fish and chips and amusement arcades are just some of the attractions of a few days at the coast. Try Margate, Brighton, Blackpool, Whitby, Great Yarmouth and Newquay, to name just a few.
