England

Vibrant cities with great nightlife and attractions, contrasted with green and pleasant countryside.

Small but scenic beyond measure, England packs boundless breathtaking landscapes into its pint-sized shores. Green fields and rumpled hills, chalk cliffs and breezy plains, ancient woods and moody moorland complement the country’s beached fringed coastline, that stretches for thousands of kilometres. A place steeped in history, explore epic tales of a monumental past in hilltop castles, medieval cathedrals, regal palaces and stately homes. Every city has a story to share, from York’s cobbled streets to Oxford’s soaring spires, and Bristol’s floating harbour to the cosmopolitan cultural centre of London. With award-winning restaurants, world-class museums, landmark theatres and a vast countryside to explore, England offers something for every traveller to discover.

When to Go

England can be visited at any time of year, as it enjoys a reasonably temperate climate, typically avoiding extremes during summer or winter. Overall, spring (late March to early June) and autumn (September to November) are the best times to visit, as it is usually warm and dry. In spring, you’ll see beautiful blankets of flowers, or in autumn the leaves changing to a kaleidoscope of oranges and reds, and avoid the much busier summer period.
