1. The coastline is beautifully beautiful

From the majestic wild and unspoilt coastline of Northumberland to the breathtaking beauty of the beaches of Cornwall , England has the most incredible coastlines you will ever see. It is also home to many nice and cozy coastal towns. You can visit Brighton in the south of England or the traditional Whitby in the north.

2. It is nowhere as peaceful as in the English countryside

To call England ‘green and pleasant’ is an understatement. With idyllic rolling hills as far as the eye can see, you are guaranteed to fall in love with the lush green landscape. From the north to the south of the country you will find a beautiful landscape that you should definitely explore.

3. The lakes are breathtaking

The Lake District , a national park in the northwest of the country, is the definition of rugged beauty. With glistening lakes surrounded by craggy hilltops and mountains, it’s impossible not to fall for this region. Put on your hiking boots and explore some of the best vistas in the world.


4. The weather is lovely no matter the season

England has a bit of a bad reputation when it comes to the weather, but one of the benefits of the weather here is that it does the seasons right. Spring is full of new life, with daffodils blooming and trees full of blossom. Summer is all about eating ice cream on the beach and picnicking in the countryside. Autumn dazzles when the trees turn bright red and orange and winter brings snow, sledding and cozy nights in front of a roaring fire. That doesn’t sound so bad does it?

5. You can find history everywhere

Another reason to visit England is its world famous history. Whether it’s visiting the awe-inspiring Tower of London, strolling around the atmospheric ruins of ancient castles, exploring prehistoric Stonehenge or visiting the Victorian village of Saltaire, you’ll feel like you’ve stepped set back in time.

6. Art lovers are in the right place here

With a thriving arts scene, England is one of the ultimate destinations for culture vultures. Tate Modern has one of the best collections of contemporary art in the world, while The National Gallery is the place to be for the classic work of the old masters. The country is home to some of the coolest street art, as well as some amazing outdoor sculptures by Henry Moore and Antony Gormley, including the beautiful Angel of the North.

7. The people are great

What makes England so special are the people who live there. The country is a melting pot of different cultures, religion and class, and it is hard to find a friendlier country. The English pride themselves on having a wicked sense of humor, as well as being ridiculously polite. Everywhere you go people are helpful, so feel free to ask for tips from the locals. Who knows what you will find out!

8. You will want to eat everything

England has some of the best restaurants in the world, but not only Michelin star meals are on the menu here. No visit would be complete without a full English breakfast (the ultimate breakfast to set you up for the day), afternoon tea (delicate trays of small sandwiches, cakes, scones and a pot of tea) and the nation’s ultimate food – fish and chips.

9. The villages are beautiful

Stone houses, cobbled streets, thatched roofs; England’s villages really are as picturesque as they appear on television. Whether it’s the sweet cottages of the Cotswolds , the quiet coastal villages of Norfolk or the quintessentially English villages of North Yorkshire, no visit to the country would be complete without experiencing the beauty of these small villages.

10. And the cities are buzzing

While visiting England you can visit some of the best cities in the world. There’s Manchester, with its cool music scene, historic Oxford, Georgian Bath and lively Newcastle, but it’s England’s capital, London, that shouldn’t be missed. Historic, cultural and beautiful, London has it all.
