A trip through England is a trip through world history, and few places in the world offer such a diverse variety of places to visit, activities, and experiences. The sprawling urban areas surrounding the capital city offer countless sightseeing opportunities, such as museums and historical sites, as well as some of the best shopping, nightlife, and culinary options in the world. To truly experience this country steeped in centuries of history, try to make time to explore the sweeping countryside, where you can enjoy the warm hospitality of small villages and explore the ancient remains of once-powerful societies. England boasts an outstanding transportation system, and many visitors find that even a short train ride through the country’s landscape of rolling hills and plains can be a highlight of their entire vacation. However you choose to move about, remember that in this compact country you’re never very far from a bustling town, where modern pubs, shops, and restaurants await to be explored.

Cumbria travel guide

4.2
Specialty Museums · Bodies of Water · Castles
Most people speed through Cumbria in a mad rush to get to the region’s most popular tourist attractions, the Lake District National Park and Hadrian’s Wall. Despite this unfortunate oversight, for centuries this county of outstanding natural beauty, bustling market towns, and picturesque villages has inspired musicians and writers, including William Wordsworth and Samuel Taylor Coleridge. Much of Cumbria is mountainous, and it notably contains Scafell Pike, England’s highest point. The region’s history was long characterized by invasions, mass migrations, and repeated bloody land disputes between the English and Scottish. Today, Cumbria stands poised to be invaded by tourists, but for the moment visitors here can enjoy quiet tours of the unspoiled land, dramatic mountain walks, sparkling lakes, and scenic hillside trails.
