Don’t be fooled by what you learned in school–England isn’t just about Romeo and Juliet, dry lists of names in history books, and musty castles. Today’s traveler will find England to be a charming, fascinating destination, full of picturesque towns, trendy clubs, and, of course, plenty of history. And, if that wasn’t enough, English cuisine is undergoing a revival–London boasts an array of chic new restaurants.
The most famous of all picturesque English villages is Stratford-upon-Avon; the home of William Shakespeare. However, there are many other English villages well worth the traveler’s time.
The town of Bath, well-known to Jane Austen fans, boasts unique architecture and a relaxing atmosphere. Fond of the tales of Robin Hood? Then visit Nottinghamshire, where the famous tales of derring-do were set.
For travelers not so enamored of quaint villages, the wonderful capital city of London has everything a modern traveler could want – grand museums, impressive theatre, old-fashioned pubs, and plenty of exciting clubs. London has many historical landmarks such as the Tower of London, the reconstructed Globe Theater, and Buckingham Palace – and, of course, if you get tired of walking, take a break to admire the famous Crown Jewels!
