England is a relatively small and mostly very green island with a rich and diverse landscape that includes beautiful beaches, miles of lakes and acres of rolling countryside. The northern part of England includes the fabulous Northumberland coastline that stretches for 100 miles and is a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Along with its dramatic scenery are the historical buildings such as the Holy Island Castle, Dunstanburgh Castle and Bamburgh. Lovers of wildlife will want to visit the Farne Islands, just off the coast, to see the puffins, seals and take part in whale watching.

Further south, the historical coastline in England includes the Jurassic Coast, England’s first natural World Heritage Site. This area includes some great traditional holiday destinations such as Devon and Dorset, where if the weather is fine, the most wonderful beach holidays can be enjoyed.

The Lake District or Lakeland as it is also known is a popular choice for the many walkers that stride across its fells. The Lake District National Park is the largest in England and Wales and has the deepest and longest lakes.

England has nine official regions and as you travel further south you come across famous cities such as Oxford with its universities and museums such as the recently refurbished Ashmolean Museum which was the first public museum in the world. Windsor is the home of the world’s largest occupied castle and Eton College, founded by Henry VIII.

Further still and into the county of East Sussex is the seaside resort of Brighton with its Indian inspired Royal Pavilion built in the time of the Prince Regent George (King George IV). Brighton has a thriving nightlife, great shops and plenty of restaurants and bars.

Greater London is divided into 32 boroughs with each having its own England tourist attractions but most people travel into the centre of London to visit some of the world famous London tourist attractions such as The Natural History Museum with its display of dinosaurs and The Tower of London which was founded by William the Conquerer in 1066 and houses the Crown Jewels.
