England can be defined by 4 distinct zones – being:
South East England:
Made up of the The Counties of Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Berkshire and Surrey. Quaint villages, market towns, stunning natural landscapes and lovely estates are dotted across the landscape. Other counties include Essex, Kent, East and West Sussex and Hampshire which are ensconced with rounded and grass-covered hills that are typically composed of chalk, speckled with medieval villages and ancient cathedral cities.
Cornwall has many charming coastal villages, with winding cobbled streets that lead to down beautiful sandy beaches.
Somerset is famous for apple orchards and cider making that has been produced in Somerset for hundreds of years. Plymouth and the south coast of Devon are famous for seafaring heritage. There are many seaside villages to visit. People always enjoy spending several days just driving through this region.
Easily accessible from all areas of the country, it’s a great place to visit for a day, a weekend or a longer break. Take a meandering drive through the picture-book perfect hills of Cotswolds and stay in a thatched-roof cottage B+B.
Bustling Birmingham is absolutely worth a visit for a few days. The city is very compact, making it easy to get around on foot. There are many architectural gems to admire, museums and markets to wander around in, charming cafés, pubs and a multi-faceted culinary scene to tease your senses.
Check out Westminster Abbey – on the way there, walk by Big Ben. At the Abbey, take the “super tour” to see where British monarchs are crowned. You should also visit St. Paul’s Cathedral: take a tour and climb the dome. Also see the Tower of London – take a tour and line up to see the crown jewels. Take a double-decker bus tour if you are short on time.
