England tourism: museums, royalty, music, pubs

Despite its size, England is one of the most diverse countries in Europe one can fly to. Travellers can explore prehistoric sites like Stonehenge, majestic medieval castles and historic estates, as well as cosy pubs, world-class museums, modern architecture, trendsetting design, innovative theatre and hot nightclubs. All of this making England a renowned tourist destination.

London, the capital

Home to more than 7 million souls, London is a cosmopolitan city with many facets. Travellers should definitely visit the big monuments, such as the Tower of London, Big Ben and the London Eye, but this sprawling city also has numerous parks and neighbourhoods to explore. Other highlights include: Westminster Abbey, Buckingham Palace, Trafalgar Square, Piccadilly Circus, St. Paul’s Cathedral, Hyde Park and the hip Soho neighbourhood of West London.

Northern England

The north of England is where many music icons were born, like The Beatles (Liverpool) and Oasis (Manchester, known for its nightlife). Closer to Scotland, there’s Newcastle, which gave the world Sting and a tasty brown ale. Road trippers will love touring the north for its sweeping postcard landscapes dotted with lakes, hills, valleys and sheep, and glimpses of the Irish Sea.

University towns

In central England, the universities of Oxford and Cambridge are a big draw. Travellers will also love Stratford-upon-Avon, the birthplace of Shakespeare, and Birmingham, which is the second largest city in England and an entertainment hub.

The beaches of southern England

In the summer, the south of England offers popular beaches overlooking the English Channel. Noteworthy detours include visiting the Canterbury Cathedral, seeing the white cliffs of Dover and marvelling at the monoliths of Stonehenge. For a true taste of England, tourists may also consider Plymouth, Exeter and Bristol.

It’s a drab, grey morning in Glasgow. It usually is. Our friend, a professor in urban design at the University of Glasgow and an expert in “Things to Do When It Looks Likely to Rain”, leads us to the old Glasgow Herald newspaper offices in the city centre. Beyond the gleaming white gallery space on the ground floor, we enter a narrow passage leading to the former water town and begin a quick tour of Scottish architecture in Glasgow. Read our blog.
