England at a glance
If you’ve come in search of the patchwork fields and elegant country gardens you’ve seen on screen – in Pride and Prejudice or Downton Abbey – you’ll find them and more. As you travel through villages and towns, listen for the country’s rich tapestry of dialects, which seem to change in the space of a few miles! Bursting with history, England prides itself on landmarks that stand the test of time including the Tower of London and the Eden Project.
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.
