The place is endowed with natural beauty, too. Lush countryside blooms from the Yorkshire Dales to the white cliffs of Dover and all points between.

London itself is one of the five most visited cities in the world. Visitors are drawn to its iconic landmarks–the Tower of London, Westminster Abbey, Big Ben, the London Eye and Buckingham Palace. It’s a modern, evolving city with innovative architecture, music, and fashion. Outside London, you’ll see fairy-tale landscapes with little thatched-roof villages sprinkled across rolling hills. Memorialized by writers including Jane Austen, James Herriot, and J.K. Rowling, the English countryside is, perhaps, even more magical than you think it will be.
England was long criticized for its meager and uninteresting cuisine, but no more. British chefs engage in a progressive culinary scene with a fusion of flavors drawn from its empire-building past and multicultural present. The quintessential British pub continues to thrive; many offer award-winning cuisine alongside hearty British favorites like shepherd’s pie or typically British desserts like sticky toffee pudding.
England is a sporting paradise. If there’s a sport, there’s an offering covering all the bases from golf, cricket, motor racing, yachting, rowing, tennis, kitesurfing, paragliding, rugby, soccer, polo, and other horse-sports as varied as its four-legged competitors. The English people are themselves a celebrated commodity with their self-deprecating sense of humor, dry wit, and legendary British peculiarities. Welcoming, polite and often reserved, their hospitality and helpfulness make England a charming and delightful place.
