Ah, foggy England. Well, in reality, fog is no more common here than many other places, but those images of murky Victorian London sure do stick. London is certainly a great place to start, a sprawling metropolis drenched in history and culture, with dozens of varied offerings round every corner, from world class museums and infamous monuments, all the way to the muddy waters of the Thames and the notorious backstreets of Soho.
It would be a mistake not to explore, though. England’s home to ample cities of culture: you’ll find some of the world’s best music and its fascinating back stories in Liverpool. Oxford and Cambridge are home to two of the world’s top Universities, and have the traditional feel and classical architecture to match, while sights like Stonehenge and the magnificent Roman architecture and public pools found in Bath open your eyes to a rich cultural history.
Be sure to drop in on the classic English pub and drink a pint of ale (it’s meant to be warm!), or perhaps visit old-world tailor, where you can be measured for a traditional suit before promenading down the modern docklands at Canary Wharf. In fact if you’re heading for some warm beer, why not have it in Shakespeare country, or head for England’s more classic beauty spots, such as coastal Cornwall or the rolling hills of the rural Lake District.
Before you go, dip into some open-air markets, take a ride on a canal boat through the heart of the country and perhaps drop in on some Premier League football or take high tea and scones in a top class hotel. After all, there are a few things that could only be English, like strawberries and cream at Wimbledon, top hats at Ascot, Glastonbury music festival and the Queen’s Christmas speech. You might not be able to see them all, but you can dip your toe into a culture that dates back centuries, and has buildings in many a town that pre-date the entire US. Just don’t forget your raincoat!
